Video: Michael Jordan Dunking At 50

By Chuck Sudo in Arts & Entertainment on Aug 12, 2013 7:30PM


Michael Jordan has had an eventful year. He remarried and held a reception in a tent slightly larger than Perry's Stage at Lollapalooza. A Georgia woman filed a paternity suit against him only to see a judge dismiss the suit and let's not forget he turned 50.

Every couple years or so someone asks, "Can Jordan still dunk?" Here's video answering that generalized question. Sure, he's dunking on kids, but check out the grace and fluidity as he crosses the kid over, takes two steps and throws the rock home with ease, defying (for the time being) the ravages of age and his growing belly. Jordan made waves in an ESPN profile where he said he wanted to trim down to his playing weight of 216 pounds and indicated he could still compete in today's NBA.

That remains to be seen. For now, let's watch Air Jordan own some kids.

Here's Jordan dunking at 48.
