Perhaps Jordan's ring close to home for both players as neither has won an National Basketball Association title.

You wanna score 30 points in 30 straight games, or do you want to win six rings?

In consideration of those accolades, Michael Jordan was recently asked whose feat he thought was more impressive, to which he responded by referencing his six National Basketball Association titles.

Michael Jordan playfully threw a bit of cold water on the historic runs James Harden (30 straight 30-point games) and Russell Westbrook (10 consecutive triple-doubles) are now on. "Six championships, by all means", Jordan told the media Tuesday. Jordan held a relatively rare news conference to promote the event, and the recent feats of Harden and Westbrook were brought up.

The NBA approved the purchase of the Hornets by Jordan with just $30 million in cash.

INGLEWOOD, CA - JUNE 12: Guard Michael Jordan #23 of the Chicago Bulls sits nexts to his wife Juanita and his dad James while hugging the NBA Championship Trophy after the Bulls defeated the Los Angeles Lakers 4-1 after Game 5 of the NBA Finals on June 12, 1991 at the Great Western Forum in Inglewood, California.

"I think getting the All-Star game here is an accomplishment that will go on his list, and it will stand out for him because it's really not about him", said James Jordan Jr., Michael's older brother.

On Tuesday, Jordan sounded a decidedly different note.

Jordan's mentality is why he was so dominant on the court. As a team owner, Jordan is now more invested in that success than ever before, and he's apparently not above letting people know that he had more than a little something to do with it in his own right.
