50-Year Old Michael Jordan Dunks In "True Blue" Air Jordan 1
words // Brandon Richard
You can always count on Michael Jordan's annual Flight School basketball camp to provide a few big sneaker stories while the NBA is in its offseason. In addition to debuting a new colorway of the Air Jordan 11, MJ recently showed campers that he still has a little lift left in his 50-year old legs.
In this photo shared by the @MJFlightSchool Twitter account, you see His Airness easily clearing the rim while wearing the "True Blue" Air Jordan 1 Retro.
The famously competitive Jordan reportedly beat his rookie Michael Kidd-Gilchrist in a game of one-on-one earlier this year and has confidently stated that he could average double figures in today's league. Do you think he still has what it takes to be a contributor in the NBA?
How old are you? Who's your GOAT? Jordan is responsible for for the NBA right now and he took the game off the shoulders of Magic and Bird WHO SAVED THE LEAGUE FROM FOLDING.
Take a knee and read the reply to your first ignorant comment.
Why Mike is "of ALL time" and not just "of HIS time"
Nope. When it's all said and done, I THINK LeBron will surpass Jordan. Jordan might have changed the game but whose better? We'll just have to wait and see.
What are you basing your opinion on? Not sure how you argue rings, ppg, 2 3-peats, never losing in the finals, and global impact. Keep their shoes in mind and follow them... Jordan's 11-13 (and yes debut of the last shots) won rings. If Lebron wins the next 3 in a row, making it 5 straight, it will be crazy impressive but that feat in itself will a) still have him 1 ring behind, b) still have him behind in ppg unless he averages 40 / game, and most importantly c) if Lebron were to peel off even next years title, let alone another three, the question then shifts to "how easy is the league right now, if you can rattle off a 3 peat this day in age?" That's a question you won't get answered until Lebron retires and you can see things like how many hall of famers he went up against, dominant teams, etc.
The thing that gets lost in shit like this is that Kobe HAS FIVE RINGS! Lebron needs 6 to enter THAT discussion, let alone a bible's worth of criteria to be truly mentioned in the same breath as Mike. Keep in mind there are guys like Robert Horry, with SEVEN on 3 different teams, still in this talk.
Side note: I know zero about Lebron's shoes - did he actually wear the red joints that dropped in the championship pack or are we seeing cats pay a few racks for setups that have no history?
