All these years out of the NBA and Michael Jordan is still talking trash—literally.
That’s because with the NBA moves this offseason that saw Chris Pauljoining James Harden in Houston to the Oklahoma City Thunder adding Paul George and Carmelo Anthony to team up with reigning NBA MVP Russell Westbrook, the league is entering an era of super teams.
But that isn’t so super for the remaining majority of teams.
Which is why six-time NBA champion Michael Jordan is now speaking out against the NBA’s current super team model.
“I think it’s going to hurt the overall aspect of the league from a competitive standpoint,” Jordan said. “You’re going to have one or two teams that are going to be great, and another 28 teams that are going to be garbage. Or they’re going to have a tough time surviving in the business environment.”
Ummm—anyone think he’s not just making a statement but voicing a complaint on behalf of his Charlotte Hornets—of which he is a co-owner—who will be caught up in the remaining dumpster fire?
Hope isn’t still gambling—at least not on his Hornets.
