The Basketball Hall of Famer who led the Chicago Bulls to six NBA titles in the 1990s said James Harden’s streak of 30 30-point games and Russell Westbrook’s 10 straight triple-doubles are both impressive and tough to accomplish. “It shows progression in the league,” the Charlotte Hornets’ owner said while discussing the upcoming All-Star weekend. “I am very proud of how both guys have done because they are making a mark for the league and I think it really helps grow the league.” But Jordan — flashing a big grin — said that there is one accomplishment tougher than both those feats: “Six championships, by all means.”

The First Lady of New Jersey says she’ll take a more active role in running Sky Blue, the National Women’s Soccer League team based in Piscataway. Murphy and her husband, Gov. Phil Murphy, are part owners of the team, which has been accused of providing substandard playing and living conditions, including no restrooms or running water at its training facility, and players being housed in apartments where cardboard or plastic covered broken windows. “We recognize there have been challenges,” Murphy said, adding there will be “upscale apartments and new furnishings” for the players.
