Michael Jordan still dunks at 50

If the NBA ever decided to bring back the old-timers game for NBA All-Star Weekend, they might be treated to the same feats that Michael Jordan treated his campers to at the Flight School Camp at UC-Santa Barbara. We do not have the video, but we do have this wonderful Twitter photo as proof that Michael Jordan can indeed still dunk at age 50:

Jordan was not kidding when he predicted he might still be able to play at 50. There are still stories of him challenging Bobcats players to one-on-one contests and trying to show the same competitive drive that made him one of the league's all-time great players.

Seeing Jordan still fly is pretty impressive. Of course, this comes on the heels of Julius Erving showing he still has some hops for the documentary NBATV produced on him. Next you will tell me Larry Bird was spotted draining 17 jumpers in a row. Oh, he did do that?

Well, that is why they are all-time greats, I guess.
