I don't know if I could have survived in this Twitter time, where you don't have the privacy that you would want.

"I think it's going to hurt the overall aspect of the league from a competitive standpoint", said Jordan of the superteam, according to Ben Golliver of Sports Illustrated. "The star players are not rushing to small markets", he said, "so I put more emphasis on draft than I used to, because you're not going to be able to get the LeBrons of the world to come to Charlotte".

"I can't play for every team, so the truth of the matter is I left one team". To now say that one is greater than the other is being a little bit unfair.

"Like I'm the reason why (expletive) Orlando couldn't make the playoffs for five, six years in a row?" he said in an interview with USA Today in the spring. "No, because we played in different eras".

"I have no patience for coaching".

"I think they're both great". "My biggest problem from a competitive standpoint is the focus of today's athlete".

"I never played against Wilt Chamberlain", Jordan said. "And if he didn't do it, there's no telling where my emotions would be".

Jordan is likely referring to the concentration of talent on the Golden State Warriors' roster.

In the Eastern Conference, Kyrie Irving was traded to the Boston Celtics, who also signed Gordon Hayward as a free agent, making them contenders with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

From Chris Paul joining 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. While the Spurs did not make a big splash in the offseason, they remain a threat with Kawhi Leonard leading the charge.

One has to wonder if Jordan thinks his Charlotte Hornets team is going to be garbage this season.
