HANG TIME HEADQUARTERS — It’s got to be the shoes, right?
But Michael Jordan can still fly … at 50. He showed off his legendary hops for participants in his annual Flight School camp at the University of California at Santa Barbara Saturday, making believers out of all in attendance and beyond:
Maybe that comeback he spoke of during his Hall of Fame induction speech was more than just MJ’s equally legendary competitive streak talking. Perhaps he’s really … nah! He wouldn’t.
Or would he?
And I know this summer has been all about the Draft, free agency, summer league’s and basically the future of the game. But it’s nice to take a moment to appreciate the history of the game. For those of us old and lucky enough to have seen MJ operate in the flesh during his prime, that photo is a reminder of the one-of-a-kind talent he really was.
Even if you didn’t appreciate it at the time, it’s hard to ignore in hindsight.
