Michael Jordan speaks out against National Basketball Association super teams

Michael Jordan will grace the cover of Cigar Aficionado, the American magazine dedicated to cigar culture and lifestyle, for it's 25th anniversary issue set to hit newstands October 31, it was announced Thursday.

In the past few months, the Cleveland Cavaliers, Houston Rockets and Oklahoma City Thunder have added star talent to their rosters, trying to match the Warriors, who last season united Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry to form a dominant squad that claimed a second title in three seasons.

"I smoke six cigars a day", Jordan said. "No. I have no patience for coaching".

"I am proud to partner with Novant Health to bring critical health services to underserved areas of Charlotte and the thousands of North Carolinians with limited access to health care", Jordan said in a release on Monday. He indirectly compared Woods' relationship with Jack Nicklaus to his with Bill Russell.

"Very talented. Never played golf with him yet", Jordan said. I don't know if I could have survived in this Twitter time, where you don't have the privacy that you would want.

The donation will fund two Novant Health Michael Jordan Family Clinics, which are projected to open in 2020. To now say that one's greater than the other is being a little bit unfair.I won six championships.

"Yeah, Jack has got 18 majors and Tiger has got 14". It didn't hurt ratings when Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls won six National Basketball Association titles in the 90′s.

"He's in a transitional period; we athletes, we go through that", Jordan said. "No, because we played in different eras".

"So when you try to equate who's the greatest of all time, it's an unfair parallel; it's an unfair choice".

Jordan also talked about the state of Woods at the moment. Tiger played in his peak somewhere towards the end of my career. What changed between that timeframe to now - social media, Twitter, all those types of things that have invaded the personality and personal time of individuals. He is, to me, in a very unique situation. We've talked. I'm a big fan.
