All-Star game marks latest milestone for Michael Jordan

Harden's streak is the longest since the NBA-ABA merger in 1976-77, though Chamberlain holds the all-time record with 65 consecutive 30-point games during the 1961-62 season.

Of course, Jordan is now the owner of the Charlotte Hornets who just so happen to be hosting this year's All-Star game.

Jordan adds that he is "very proud" of both Harden and Westbrook.

Michael Jordan says James Harden's streak of 30 straight 30-point games and Russell Westbrook's 10 straight triple-doubles are both impressive and tough to accomplish.

"He's excited for the National Basketball Association to come to his home state and play in the building of the team he owns", said Curry, the Hornets colour commentator and former National Basketball Association player.

On the issue of which deed was more difficult to pull off, Jordan said with a smile, "Which is harder, from a player standpoint?"

On the court, after not being able to make his school varsity as a sophomore, Jordan went on to become a two-time All-American, NCAA champion and the national college player of the year in 1984. Jordan answered as you'd expect the greatest of all-time to answer.

Ladies and gentlemen, that's just a classic line from Jordan.

"When I hear [greatest ever], I cringe a little bit, because it's a little bit embarrassing, because no one knows".

"It shows progression in the league", Jordan said during an interview at his Hornets facility while discussing the upcoming All-Star weekend. As a team owner, Jordan is now more invested in that success than ever before, and he's apparently not above letting people know that he had more than a little something to do with it in his own right.
