Jordan vents frustrations with NBA super teams

Count Michael Jordan as one of the naysayers of super teams.

 

The NBA legend said having a couple of teams dominate the league every year hurts the competition both on and off the court.

"I think it's going to hurt the overall aspect of the league from a competitive standpoint," Jordan told Cigar Aficionado magazine.

"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."

The super teams in question likely refer to the Warriors and the Cavaliers, both of which have been to the NBA championship the past three years.

The two teams are already favourites to face off against each other again, with the Warriors predicted to win the 2018 title for the third time in four years.

Interestingly enough, Jordan was on the Bulls when they won multiple titles in the 1990s, along with Steve Kerr, who is the head coach of the Warriors.

Jordan, who owns the Hornets, is likely concerned about his team on a competitive and business level.

The team has only made the playoffs three times since the 2001-02 season.
