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. "Six championships, by all means", said Jordan when asked to rate their difficulty.

Over the last few months of the National Basketball Association season, James Harden and Russell Westbrook have been on a tear while making National Basketball Association history, in which they're both now on offensive streaks that have put them in a category of their own.

"You know, staring across the dorm room at him back then, no, I never would have thought this would happen", Peterson told The Associated Press.

"It shows progression in the league", Jordan said. Harden will be suiting up for Team LeBron and Russ will be playing for Team Giannis, and Jordan will likely be closely watching. Harden's streak is the longest since the NBA-ABA merger in 1976-77, though Chamberlain holds the all-time record with 65 consecutive 30-point games during the 1961-62 season.

On the red carpet , however, Rexha wore a red tulle gown with a plunging neckline by Monsoori and looked so good in it. However, not all of the designers who reached out were as supportive as they may have seemed on social media.

When asked about which he thought was a more remarkable accomplishment, Michael Jordan chose to not even answer the question.

"Our parents taught us that you can achieve anything you want, but you have to have drive, that motivation - and you have to work hard at it", said James Jordan Jr., who now works as an executive for the Hornets after spending 31 years in the military.

The former Chicago Bulls great is now the owner of the Charlotte Hornets, who are hosting the All-Star Weekend festivities in his native North Carolina.

Off the court, Jordan marketed his on-court success into a fortune.
