All-Star game marks latest milestone for Michael Jordan

Rockets Thunder Michael Jordan James Harden Russell Westbrook

Harden scored 30 points in the 30th consecutive game, while Westbrook recorded his tenth consecutive triple-double.

Forbes Magazine estimated Jordan's net worth in 2018 at $1.6 billion and Hornets president Fred Whitfield said he anticipates the All-Star game will have a $100 million economic impact on Charlotte.

"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".

Michael Jordan praised the record-breaking exploits of James Harden and Russell Westbrook on Tuesday before mischievously remarking that both players' achievements pale against his own. "So from a Hornets standpoint, that is on display this week. Six championships, by all means", Jordan said during a press conference ahead of the NBA All-Star festivities, which will be hosted in Charlotte, N.C. Jordan answered as you'd expect the greatest of all-time to answer. Harden will be suiting up for Team LeBron and Russ will be playing for Team Giannis, and Jordan will likely be closely watching.

Raptors to sign veteran PG Lin
Harris made a career-high seven 3-pointers, connecting for all of his threes and 22 of his 24 points in the first half. There were nine ties in the third quarter alone before the Nets and Raptors headed into the fourth tied at 92.

It might not have been a coincidence that as Jordan basked in the laughter his line provoked among the assembled media, his hand moved to the ring he was wearing.

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.

Off the court, Jordan marketed his on-court success into a fortune. It is said that at that point in time, the league was also highly invested in the five-time champion's purchase of an National Basketball Association franchise.
