Jordan's spokesperson Estee Portnoy told The Associated Press on Monday (Oct 9) that the Hornets owner "feels so great about being able to impact the Charlotte community and help people who really deserve it. Michael and Novant are really excited about this project".

The two teams are already favourites to face off against each other again, with the Warriors predicted to win the 2018 title for the third time in four years. After all, Paul George and Carmelo Anthony joined Russell Westbrook in Oklahoma City, Chris Paul teamed up with James Harden in Houston and Boston brought in Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward.

"I think it's going to hurt the overall aspect of the league from a competitive standpoint", said Jordan. "My biggest problem from a competitive standpoint is the focus of today's athlete".

Jordan will fund two Novant Health Michael Jordan Family Clinics that are projected to open in late 2020.

"I don't know if I could have survived in this Twitter time where you don't have the privacy that you would want". I never played against Wilt Chamberlain. "I never played against Jerry West". To now say that one is greater than the other is being a little bit unfair. 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. He indirectly compared Woods' relationship with Jack Nicklaus to his with Bill Russell. For me, it was the best thing to happen to me, because it allowed me to go back to the game [of basketball] with a stronger passion.
