Michael Jordan: 6 NBA titles tougher than Harden, Westbrook streaks

While Harden and Westbrook have piled up individual accolades in recent years, winning the 2018 and 2017 season MVP titles respectively, neither has managed to win an National Basketball Association championship with their teams.

Yesterday, the two former MVP winners set two huge milestones.

Harden, the NBA's leading scorer by a wide margin, has scored 30 points or more in 30 consecutive games dating back to December 8th. He averaged a triple-double again last season and is on pace to do it for a third straight campaign with 21.2 points, 11.2 assists and 11.1 rebounds per contest. Of course Jordan showed love to the two National Basketball Association superstars in question, but made it clear what earns you the ultimate respect in the league: rings. The NBA nearly certainly would not approve that type of deal today, but the league and global economy were both in a very different place in 2010.

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

"I'm very proud of how both guys have done", Jordan said, as transcribed by ForTheWin, "because they're making their mark for the league, and I really think it really helps grow the league".

Michael Jordan says James Harden's streak of 30 straight 30-point games and Russell Westbrook's 10 straight triple-doubles are both impressive and tough to accomplish. "Six championships probably", quipped Jordan, who won 6 NBA Finals titles with the Chicago Bulls between 1991 and 1998.
