CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - A published report on ESPN Monday morning says NBA legend Michael Jordan isn't too thrilled about LeBron James' decision to team up and build an NBA powerhouse team.

According to the report, Michael Jordan was asked during a golf tournament what he thought about LeBron joining Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in Miami, and here's what he had to say:

"There's no way, with hindsight, I would've ever called up Larry, called up Magic and said, 'Hey, look, let's get together and play on one team...But that's ... things are different. I can't say that's a bad thing. It's an opportunity these kids have today. In all honesty, I was trying to beat those guys."

After seven seasons with the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Akron, Ohio native and two time NBA MVP announced on July 8th on national television that he was "taking his talents to South Beach."
