At 48 years old, Michael Jordan can still dunk a basketball. That seems merited. Here's the Bobcats owner at the team's fantasy basketball camp yesterday, throwing down (to use the term lightly!) at the request of a camper. Still, as TBJ points out, we've seen worse from Mike — even when he was a sprightly 39.


We're curious how Jordan would actually stack up in the NBA today. His quickness and that deadly first step might be long gone, but he could still post up and get off jumpers. Craggs estimates that he'd manage 5-2-2 in 24 minutes if he were to suit up, and that line doesn't sound too outlandish. It would certainly make him a more valuable commodity than at least one current Chicago player.
