Michael Jordan is already regarded as the “greatest of all-time” so he doesn’t really need anymore praise, but he did get some from the queen of daytime television, Oprah.

TMZ Sports caught up with Oprah out in Washington D.C.  Since they knew she’s a huge sports fan, they asked O if she thought MJ was truly the greatest of all-time.

To me it sounded like she paused and started to say, “Well..” but TMZ photogs never shut up, and always ask leading questions.

Oprah went on to say, “I love Michael Jordan, and he’s from Chicago, and I’m from Chicago, and I think Michael Jordan is great.”

Jordan’s biggest fame came while playing for the Chicago Bulls, but he was actually born in Brooklyn, New York, and grew up in North Carolina.
