Michael Jordan concerned about National Basketball Association super teams

Ben Golliver

The Hornets owner and National Basketball Association legend Michael Jordan made his largest philanthropic donation ever when he pledged 7 million U.S. dollars to build medical clinics in Charlotte with hope of aiding its troubled communities.

In a recent interview with Cigar Aficionado Magazine, His Airness expressed some concerns about competitive balance in the league.

'Human remains' found as family fears missing grandmother was taken by crocodile
Ms Cameron's granddaughter Isabella Eggins said her family was of "firm belief" her nan had passed away in "tragic circumstances". Officers from the state Department of Environment and Heritage Protection have been searching for any crocodiles in the area.

"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 are going to have a tough time surviving in the business environment".

Jordan, 54, also said he lacks the patience to be a coach, saying his biggest problem is the focus level of today's players.

Germany U-17 Coach Christian Wuck: " Iran Is mentally, physically strong"
The Persians, who had defeated Guinea 3-1 in their first match, qualified for the tournament's knock-out round with six points. The problem for Costa Rica is that they are playing against Iran - a team that has surpassed and shocked most in Goa.

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". Does that make Bill Russell better than me, or make me better than him? They never played with the same equipment. "Jack is the greatest major champion of all time, but Tiger Woods played by far the best golf". To now say that one's greater than the other is being a little bit unfair.I won six championships. "You know, we athletes, we go through that. No, because we played in different eras". Yes, Jack has 18 majors and Tiger's got 14, and that's how people are judging certain things. "I smoke six cigars a day, maybe", he said.

Jordan' s spokesperson Estee Portnoy said Jordan was largely spurred by a 2014 study from Harvard and the University of California that found poor children in Charlotte have the worst odds of those in any big United States city to lift themselves out of poverty. Tiger played in his peak somewhere towards the end of my career.

Mr Harris's lawyer, S Lee Merritt, said his client did nothing wrong and authorities did not have probable cause to prosecute him. At a September court hearing, Ramo's lawyer alleged that Harris may have been the one to throw the first punch.

Not surprisingly, Jordan was also asked about his love of cigars. Social media, Twitter, all types of things that have invaded the personal time of individuals. We've talked. I'm a big fan.
