Michael Jordan: 6 National Basketball Association titles tougher than James Harden, Russell Westbrook streaks

Over the last few months of the National Basketball Association season, James Harden and Russell Westbrook have been on a tear while making National Basketball Association history, in which they're both now on offensive streaks that have put them in a category of their own.

Harden needed a late scoring spree on Monday night to extend his streak to 30 games, scoring 11 points in the final 100 seconds as the Rockets defeated the Dallas Mavericks 120-104.

Charlotte Hornets owner Michael Jordan, flashing a big grin: "Which is harder from the player's standpoint?" Harden has scored at least 30 points in 30 straight games while Westbrook just beat Wilt Chamberlain's record for the most consecutive games with a triple-double, with 10.

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. "Six championships, by all means", Jordan said at a press conference on Tuesday.

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.

Lansdorp told Engadget that the Mars One Foundation is still operating, but could not do anything of note without additional investment.

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

Jordan on Tuesday said both achievements were worthy of accolades.

"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.

The only thing seemingly that has eluded Jordan, who turns 56 on Sunday - the day of the All-Star game - is ultimate success as an executive and team owner.

Jordan's mentality is why he was so dominant on the court.
