Michael Jordan was calmly, even quietly, answering questions Tuesday about the NBA All-Star Game when he slyly allowed his legendary competitiveness to emerge.

You wanna score 30 points in 30 straight games, or do you want to win six rings? Both Westbrook and Harden will be playing in the all-star showcase and will definitely be looking to impress Jordan.

The All-Star game will be played on Sunday (Monday morning, Philippine Time) - Jordan's 56th birthday.

Asked about those two players, Jordan told reporters that their exploits reflect "progression" in the National Basketball Association, adding, "I am very proud of how both guys have done, because they are making a mark for the league and I think it really helps grow the league". Westbrook just made history by notching his 10th straight triple-double while surpassing Wilt Chamberlain (a record from 1968), while Harden has scored 30 points or more in 30 consecutive games.

The legendary Michael Jordan praises the record-breaking National Basketball Association stars, but quips: "Which is harder from a player's standpoint?"

The only thing seemingly that has eluded Jordan is ultimate success as an executive and team owner.

"Which is harder from the player's standpoint? Six championships probably", quipped Jordan, who won 6 NBA Finals titles with the Chicago Bulls between 1991 and 1998. "I am very proud of how both guys have done because they are making a mark for the league, and I think it really helps grow the league".

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.
