All-Star game marks latest milestone for Michael Jordan

All-Star game marks latest milestone for Michael Jordan

Harden notched his 30th straight 30-point game in Houston's defeat of the Dallas Mavericks on Monday, becoming only the second player after Wilt Chamberlain to achieve the feat.

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.

Jordan praised both players for what they're doing, noting that both streaks are hard to accomplish.

Oil price rises after panic at OPEC
US West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude oil futures were at $53.66 per barrel, up 56 cents, or 1.1 percent, from their last close. It also slightly downgraded its forecast for growth in global demand in 2019 from 1.29 million barrels per day to 1.24 million.


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. "So from a Hornets standpoint, that is on display this week". The GOAT took the opportunity to take a shot at both Harden and Westbrook on Tuesday.

On the court, after not being able to make his school varsity as a sophomore, Jordan went on to become a two-time All-American, NCAA champion and the national college player of the year in 1984.

It might not have been a coincidence that as Jordan basked in the laughter his line provoked among the assembled media, his hand moved to the ring he was wearing.

He added, "There's no difference of opinion between the parties as I know it when it comes to risky people in this country". The legislation would allot about $1.4 billion for border fencing, far less than the $5.7 billion Trump wanted for a wall.


"Frankly, no", Jordan said Tuesday (Wednesday, Philippine time) in a news conference previewing the All-Star game. The six-time National Basketball Association champion had an epic response. 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.

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.

Mickelson wraps up fifth Pebble Beach win
Scot Russell Knox closed at nine under after a fourth-round level-par 72, one shot clear of Northern Irishman Graeme McDowell. Scott Piercy had a 15-foot putt that was slightly uphill, and he still ran it 7 feet by the hole and three-putted for bogey.
