Michael Jordan is 50 years old, but can still dunk while wearing jeans (VIDEO)

Aug 13, 2013, 12:02 AM EDT

We showed you the picture of Michael Jordan throwing one down while wearing jeans at his basketball camp over the weekend, and as is usually the case, a video of the feat has finally surfaced.

Jordan is effortless in getting enough vertical to dunk the basketball, which takes away a little of the mystique from the original photo. But what’s crazy is how little the camp’s participants seem to care, along with the fact that this didn’t even take place during a scheduled event where the kids were all assembled and breathlessly watching.

Jordan goes by his underaged defender and jams it not because he’s interested in getting a reaction out of those in attendance, but just because he still can.

      It has to be the shoes, right, so how come this doesn’t work for me when I have the shoes on?

    I hear ya buddy. This is the second time on this site this has been written about, odd.

    Not all that impressive, since apparently, Dr J is still dunking at the
    ripe old age of 63. And Shawn Bradley reportedly plans to celebrate his 70th birthday by dunking!

    First off, he’s clearly wearing sweatpants…..which apparently is real news according to PBT. Secondly, he’s 6’7″ with a 7 foot wing span……of course he can still dunk! He only has to jump like a foot off the ground. He is the GOAT to, so I wouldn’t expect anything less.

      Hmmm, apparently MJ has gone through a growth spurt since retiring…he was always listed at 6’6″ during his playing days.

    This is a valuable skill for an owner to have.

    Your fellow PBT blogger had posted it 3 days ago http://probasketballtalk.nbcsports.com/2013/08/10/michael-jordan-can-still-dunk-even-in-jeans-at-age-50/, and he even managed to write 300 words on it.

    I’m so glad I’m old enough to have watched him play.

  12. brianjoates - Aug 13, 2013 at 10:00 AM

    He could still get a team 8-10 points a night in 12-15 minutes per game.

    • borderline1988 - Aug 13, 2013 at 4:19 PM

      But it would be useless because at this point, he’d make Steve Nash look like Gary Payton on defense.

      • brianjoates - Aug 13, 2013 at 5:31 PM

        He is so fundamentally sound, and while he obviously doesn’t have the athleticism of the 20 somethings, he understands positioning, denying passing lanes, etc on defense.

        But its a dumb debate, because he is sitting in the big office, when not getting in a double loop.

    I don’t think that Jordan could play. Remember his last season? He couldn’t play D and he is older.

    Greatest ever, period!

  15. duncanisland - Aug 13, 2013 at 10:44 PM

    Not this again. How may times do I have to hear Jordan is 50??? I hear this about every week for the past few months. WHO CARES!!! So what if he can dunk at 50! This is news? Again, who cares!
