Obviosuly but he showed he can still take a scrappy long defender and beat him, on top of wide open looks he would get just like any player, he could drop 15. His trainer just said that he thinks MJ would still drop 20 today. I dont see how people dont think MJ could get a defender in the post and use foot work to still get good looks. Even at 50 Im sure his footwork and fadeaway shot is still there. We are talking about MJ here at 50 a normal person I would agree, but MJ still works out and was and still is a freak of nature.

i don't believe he could. Agree to disagree

Guy MJ is there boss. MKG probably played easy on the guy. If you actually think MJ at 50 years old could play in the nba you are crazy. Lets also remember that the guy hasnt even been playing legit ball for years. You dont stop playing ball for years and then come back and play at a NBA level.

MJ wouldn't be able to handle playing in transition quickly enough at 50. He'd be dead tired after only a few possessions, especially if both teams were missing and it became an up and down game.

He can probably still destroy people 1-on-1 just posting them up all day, but there's no way he can play in the NBA right now.

Jordan can still probably dominate a 3 on 3 game. 5 on 5? Shiieeeet.

Legends 3 on 3 game for next All-Star weekend. Too bad Magic backed out of him and Jalen Rose taking on Charles and Kenny this year.
