Michael Jordan answered a question about James Harden and Russell Westbrook with a boast about his ring count. More

It's no secret James Harden and Russell Westbrook are having monster seasons for their respective teams.

So when Michael Jordan, who is considered by many as the greatest National Basketball Association player of all time, was asked which feat he thinks is harder, he gave the ultimate response. "Six championships, by all means", Jordan said at a press conference on Tuesday.

Jordan praised both players for what they're doing, noting that both streaks are hard to accomplish.

Westbrook finished with 21 points, 14 rebounds and 11 assists to notch his 10th straight triple-double in the Thunder's 120-111 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers, breaking a tie with Wilt Chamberlain for the most consecutive triple doubles.

May responded that she wanted negotiations "settled before Christmas" and said the best way to end uncertainty was "with a deal".

"I'm very proud of how both guys have done", Jordan said, as transcribed by ForTheWin, "because they're making their mark for the league, and I really think it really helps grow the league".

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 did laud both players for their achievement, taking no more of the spotlight for two players that will be featured in this iteration of the All-Star Game.

Clearly, MJ was joking while staying true to his competitive spirit, though from a team standpoint it's fair to say that he makes a legitimate point, as neither Westbrook or Harden have won an National Basketball Association title despite their undeniable ability to score at will.
