Harden scored 30 points in the 30th consecutive game, while Westbrook recorded his tenth consecutive triple-double.

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. The NBA nearly certainly would not approve that type of deal today, but the league and global economy were both in a very different place in 2010.

The All-Star game will be played on Sunday (Monday morning, Philippine Time) - Jordan's 56th birthday. Westbrook has made history by notching his 10th straight triple double and surpassed Wilt Chamberlain for the record.

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. In a December video clip, James said that his role in leading the Cleveland Cavaliers past the favored Golden State Warriors for the 2016 championship, making National Basketball Association history along the way by overcoming a 3-1 series deficit, "made me the greatest player of all time".

"Frankly, no", Jordan said Tuesday (Wednesday, Philippine time) in a news conference previewing the All-Star game.
