The GOAT has spoken.

In a new interview with Cigar Aficionado magazine (huh?) NBA hall-of-famer Michael Jordan revealed that he does not like the "super team" era the NBA is currently in.

Jordan, who owns the Charlotte Hornets, spoke about the trend of NBA superstars joining other NBA superstars:

"I think it's going to hurt the overall aspect of the league from a competitive standpoint...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're going to have a tough time surviving in the business environment."

Depending on whom you ask, the "super team" era either started when LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh joined forces on the Miami Heat in 2010 or in 2016 when Kevin Durant signed on with the Golden State Warriors. Now, you have a handful of super teams, from the Oklahoma Thunder to the Houston Rockets to the Boston Celtics.

Of course, when Michael Jordan played he was on a super team, but only because he was the greatest.

Speaking about the greatest, Jordan also added his two cents on the topic:

"I never played against Wilt Chamberlain...I never played against Jerry West. To now say that one's greater than the other is being a little bit unfair...I won six championships. Bill Russell won 11. Does that make Bill Russell better than me or make me better than him? No, because we played in different eras."
