"I think it's going to hurt the overall aspect of the league from a competitive standpoint", Jordan said of superteams.

He also talked about his pal Tiger Woods, a 14-time major champion golfer struggling to return after multiple back operations, and said he himself might not have "survived in this Twitter time". While Jordan did not mention the two great teams, it's safe to assume that they are the #Golden State Warriors and the #Cleveland Cavaliers, who faced off in the NBA Finals in each of the last three seasons.

Jordan, who owns the Hornets, is likely concerned about his team on a competitive and business level. Barring any major injuries, the Warriors will be the prohibitive favorites to win the championship again.

The NBA gets its regular season going next week, but some fans would prefer to just skip ahead seven months to when they assume the Warriors and Cavaliers will be squaring off in a fourth straight Finals. I think when you can see the similarities and you understand, this is one way you can judge the tow-how much impact did each change or evolve the game? Kawhi Leonard was the 15th pick in the draft; Isaiah Thomas was the 60th pick in the draft; Draymond Green was the 35th pick in the draft.

"I have no patience for coaching. No because when you try to compare different eras and equate who is better than the other, it's an unfair parallel, an unfair choice".

The Warriors and Cavs have already created history by reaching three consecutive National Basketball Association finals over the last three years. Now these two teams are being called dynasties. "Golden State hadn't won it in 40 years".

"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. "I never played against Jerry West".

When James famously ditched the Cavs for the Heat in 2010, he helped usher in the era of super teams by uniting with Wade in Miami, along with another prized free agent, Chris Bosh. For me, it was the best thing to happen to me, because it allowed me to go back to the game [of basketball] with a stronger passion.
