Despite being 50 years old, Michael Jordan can still dunk a ball. In a picture from the twitter account @MJFlightSchool, you can see MJ dunking over a little kid at his summer basketball camp.
When he turned fifty back in February, he was criticized for losing his touch, especially by rival Clyde Drexler. Drexler threw a few low blows in Jordan’s direction during the 2013 All-Star Weekend, saying,
Man, he’s old. I hope he enjoys it, has fun and gets ready for the next 50. He’s just making the turn. We’ve got to go to the back nine.
It doesn’t seem like Jordan is anywhere near the back nine after this picture. Seeing things like this just further prove MJ’s dominance, as dunking at the age of 50 is not a feat many can say they’ve done. The picture makes it look like Jordan did it with ease.
Now obviously I don’t expect Michael Jordan to be able to dunk every year for the next ten or twenty years, but I wouldn’t complain if he could. I think it’s cool to see something like this, for Jordan to show young kids who were never able to watch him play why he’s the greatest player of all time is pretty special.
I’m interested to hear how old you think Michael Jordan will be before he loses his magic touch, or jump. Comment below!
