Michael Jordan: Superteams ‘hurt the league from a competitive standpoint’

NBA Hall of Famer and Charlotte Hornets owner Michael Jordan isn’t a fan of the NBA’s so-called superteam era.

“I think it’s going to hurt the overall aspect of the league from a competitive standpoint,” Jordan said in an interview with 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.”

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

With the Cavaliers’ franchise-record-tying 13-game winning streak ending with a 106-102 loss to the Indiana Pacers on Friday night, the biggest disappointment in Cleveland’s postgame locker room stemmed from news that weather issues would delay the team flight home, not the defeat.

If anything, the loss provided Cleveland a chance to reflect on the team it has become in the last 3 ½ weeks, going from a 5-7 record to holding the No. 3 spot in the Eastern Conference standings.
