While Jordan did not mention the two great teams, it's safe to assume that they are the #Golden State Warriors and the #Cleveland Cavaliers, who faced off in the NBA Finals in each of the last three seasons.

Jordan said having a couple of teams dominate the league every year hurt the competition both on and off the court. "The star players are not rushing to small markets", he said, "so I put more emphasis on draft than I used to, because you're not going to be able to get the LeBrons of the world to come to Charlotte". Jack and Tiger never played against each other. It seemed as if Jordan gave the advantage to Woods on that one. He indirectly compared Woods' relationship with Jack Nicklaus to his with Bill Russell. To now say that one's greater than the other is being a little bit unfair... "We athletes go through that".

"How much did each one impact, change or evolve the game?"

Bearish IEA Demand Outlook Could Pressure Prices
Yesterday the EIA said it expects US crude oil production in 2018 to rise by more than previously expected. WTI light sweet crude oil fell 70 cents, or 1.4%, to settle at $50.60/bbl.

On who is the greatest of all time: "I never played against Wilt Chamberlain". Tiger evolved it to where it crossed a lot of different boundaries, where it's not just a white guy's sport ― black guys, African-Americans, all minorities play the game.

Portnoy said Jordan, 54, was motivated by a study that found poor children in Charlotte have the worst odds of those of any of the top 50 cities in the United States to lift themselves out of poverty. Nicklaus and Russell have more majors and National Basketball Association championships than Tiger and MJ, but does that mean they're better?

In those championship seasons from 1991-93 and 1996-98, Jordan's teams won 61, 67, 57, 72, 69 and 62 games, dominating the league.

"So when you try to equate who's the greatest of all time, it's an unfair parallel; it's an unfair choice". They never played with the same equipment.

On his childhood sports idols: "I also grew up a NASCAR fan, a Richard Petty fan".

Jordan also praised Northern Ireland star Rory McIlroy, saying he admires him but has yet to play a round with him.
