07:11 AM ET 08.12 | Is it still in the shoes? Michael Jordan wowed campers at his annual Flight School camp in California over the weekend, showing that His Airness can still fly -- albeit at a lower altitude -- by rising up and dunking with one hand. At 50-years-old. In a pair of jeans and Air Jordans. "This still happens," was the description accompanying the photo sent out from the Twitter account of Jordan's camp, @MJFlightSchool. A YouTube video shows a young camper defending Jordan, and when he goes for the steal the Hall of Famer drives the lane and throws down the one-handed jam. Jordan takes the youngster to school one more time in the short clip, playfully backing him down before spinning away and sinking a running left-handed hook shot.

MJ is MJ.
Instead of spending time trying to run 'Cats and other poorly run businesses, I wish MJ would teach some kids the nuances of the game, and how to develop that killer instinct (albeit for a fee:-) ).
