Harden's streak is the longest since the NBA-ABA merger in 1976-77, though Chamberlain holds the all-time record with 65 consecutive 30-point games during the 1961-62 season.
Clearly, MJ was joking while staying true to his competitive spirit, though from a team standpoint it's fair to say that he makes a legitimate point, as neither Westbrook or Harden have won an National Basketball Association title despite their undeniable ability to score at will.
Both players continued impressive streaks during games Monday.
"Michael has always been very sharp, very smart", said Peterson, who now works as an assistant general manager for Jordan's Charlotte Hornets.
All joking aside, Jordan lauded the players for their accomplishments and said it shows how much talent the National Basketball Association has. "Six championships, by all means", Jordan said during a press conference ahead of the NBA All-Star festivities, which will be hosted in Charlotte, N.C.

Bill Cosby’s spokesman says the comedian thinks prison is an ‘amazing experience’
He said The Cosby Show star rinses off his prison food in a cup of water before every meal to reduce his salt intake. Wyatt did not explain how Cosby did that however, since he was removed from the general population at that time.
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.
"When I hear [greatest ever], I cringe a little bit, because it's a little bit embarrassing, because no one knows". 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 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.
Jordan's mentality is why he was so dominant on the court.
