Michael Jordan dropped the mic when discussing two current NBA stars.
The Chicago Bulls legend was asked which was more impressive: James Harden’s 30 straight games scoring at least 30 points or Russell Westbrook’s 10 straight triple-doubles. The six-time NBA champion had an epic response. (RELATED: NBA Star James Harden Helps 70 Kids Have Massive Christmas Shopping Sprees)
“I’m very proud of how both guys have done because they’re making their mark for the league, and I think it really helps grow the league. Which is harder from a player’s perspective? Six championships, by all means,” Jordan told the media Tuesday.

Ladies and gentlemen, that’s just a classic line from Jordan. Do you know what matters in sports? Titles. That’s the end of the list. Titles matter, and everything else is just outside noise.
You wanna score 30 points in 30 straight games, or do you want to win six rings? Anybody who says anything other than the latter option is a clown.
Jordan’s mentality is why he was so dominant on the court. All he did was win.
This would also seem like a great time remind people there’s a documentary on Jordan coming out in 2020, and it looks incredible.

I think it’s safe to say that the world of sports would be much better if we had some more athletes with the mentality of Jordan.
