James Harden made headlines in recent weeks when he scored 30 points for 30 straight games.

Michael Jordan praised the record-breaking exploits of James Harden and Russell Westbrook on Tuesday, February 12 (Wednesday, February 13, Manila time) before mischievously remarking that both players' achievements pale against his own. "Six championships probably", quipped Jordan, who won 6 NBA Finals titles with the Chicago Bulls between 1991 and 1998.

The NBA approved the purchase of the Hornets by Jordan with just $30 million in cash. In a December video clip, James said that his role in leading the Cleveland Cavaliers past the favored Golden State Warriors for the 2016 championship, making National Basketball Association history along the way by overcoming a 3-1 series deficit, "made me the greatest player of all time". 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.

"It shows progression in the league", Jordan said according to ESPN.

Jordan's mentality is why he was so dominant on the court.
