“I think it’s going to hurt the overall aspect of the league from a competitive standpoint. You’re going to have one or two teams that are going to be great, and another 28 teams that are going to be garbage. Or they’re going to have a tough time surviving in the business environment.”
Naming only two super teams, Jordan is likely refering to the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers, who have met in the NBA Finals for the past three years. While the two teams indeed are favorites to meet up in this season’s Finals once again, we definitely have more than two super teams. At least we don’t have 28 teams that will be garbage. Oklahoma City has Westbrook, George and Anthony on their roster, the Celtics are playing with Irving, Hayward and Horford, Houston was able to add Paul to their team around Harden, and Minnesota’s Towns, Wiggins and Butler are looking to make some noise, too. The teams from New Orleans, Denver, Los Angeles (Clippers), Washington D.C, Milwaukee and Toronto are definitely going to have a better than garbage season, as well.
When it comes to today’s NBA, Jordan is such a naysayr.
