Charlotte Hornets owner Michael Jordan isn't a big fan of star players joining forces and forming Super Teams in the National Basketball Association. It's not surprising that the NBA Hall-of-Famer is concerned about the league's competitive balance heading into the 2017-18 season, which starts next week.

"I think it's going to hurt the overall aspect of the league from a competitive standpoint", Jordan told Cigar Aficionado magazine. "No. I have no patience for coaching".

Speaking on the donation, Jordan said: "Through my years of working with Novant Health, I have been impressed with their approach and their commitment to the community".

"Very talented. Never played golf with him yet", Jordan said.

James was criticized for choosing to join his rivals rather than trying to beat them, but at the time, Jordan claimed he didn't have a problem with it, although he said it was not what he would have done. "You know, we athletes, we go through that". To now say that one's greater than the other is being a little bit unfair.I won six championships. "No, because we played in different eras". I won six championships. "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".

Portnoy said Jordan, 54, was motivated by a study that found poor children in Charlotte have the worst odds of those of any of the top 50 cities in the United States to lift themselves out of poverty. Tiger played at his peak somewhere towards the end of my career. And the what changed between that timeframe to now - social media, Twitter, all those types of things that has invaded their personality and their personal times as individuals. He is, to me, in a very unique situation.

On his childhood sports idols: "I also grew up a NASCAR fan, a Richard Petty fan".
