Michael Jordan can still knock down shots (VIDEO)

Aug 5, 2014, 12:33 PM EDT

Michael Jordan can still get buckets.

So long as they are standstill jumpers and he is left wide open… but still, this is Michael Jordan getting buckets. Pretty much if there is video someday of Jordan making shots at age 70, we’re going to run it. Just be warned.

This is 51-year-old Jordan at his Flight School basketball camp and in proof that if you take hundreds of thousands of practice jumpers in your youth/prime the muscle memory stays with you, he calmly walks out and knocks down 11 straight shots in kind of an around the world format.

We bring this to you because… HE’S MICHEAL JORDAN.

    Not bad for a career 32% three point shooter.

        …says the guy who corrected a commenter that Andrew Bynum wasn’t literally stealing anything by accepting a contract from the Clippers.

        I’d like to hear you two debate a topic one day without the aid of statistics.

      idiot! he’s not known as a 3pt shooter but it he made shots when it mattered most.

    I doubt it is “so long as they are” stand-still wide-opes. I’m sure he can still ball with his age group.

    Also, people who don’t play have no idea how difficult the stroke is. Go to the park and watch otherwise talented athletes throw up brick after brick and you might just begin to get the idea. And if you never have, heave the rock at the hoop for 15 minutes and tell me how you feel the next morning.

      well said

      there is a difference between great athletes and basketball players.

      it’s great when the basketball player also happens to be a great athlete.

      @davidly “I’m sure he can still ball with his age group.” You think?

      • davidly - Aug 5, 2014 at 2:43 PM

        I was just saying cuz the article makes it sound like he’d be throwing air balls if anybody put a hand in his face.

      • duhwighthoward - Aug 5, 2014 at 5:08 PM

        I’m sure he is still better than 99.9% of all people on earth, regardless of their age.

    Put MJ in MSG and he’ll score 50+, again.

      The way the Knicks have played defense lately that’s not saying a whole lot.

    You act like he should be a cripple… Off the nutz

    MJ still got it. #GOAT1B

  6. montrealknowledge - Aug 5, 2014 at 5:40 PM

    He’s only 51 and was in the NBA… He can hit shots no matter what and he probably will be hitting shots at 70 if he continues to shoot around and hang out in basketball gyms… Come on man.. 50 year olds who are NOT MJ hit shots. The video will be way cooler when he is 70.

    Bird hit 15 in a row at Pacers practice even rolled up his sleeves and he’s 57, and sure not in gym like MJ is.

    Why do you think they called him money? Not just because of his penchant for gambling, when it was on the line there was no one better.

    • bklyn221 - Aug 6, 2014 at 1:21 PM

      confusing him with MONEY MAYWEATHER, the true MONEY.
