Michael Jordan may be 51 years of age but, appearing at a recent charity event, the greatest player ever to play in the NBA proved that he hadn't lost the touch that helped him to six NBA titles with the Chicago Bulls.

Nothing but net

Attending the Michael Jordan 'Flight School basketball camp' recently, MJ stepped onto the court in front of a huge crowd hoping to see the GOAT in action. And Jordan duly obliged - sinking 11 straight shots from various positions inside and outside the arc.

Ok so he might not have been making the shots at the same intensity which made him the face of the NBA for well over a decade, but his nonchalant draining of threes is a welcome reminder of the talent and technique that made Michael Jordan the superstar that he was, and still is.

Glorious career

When people look to name the greats of the NBA, Michael Jordan's name is never too far away from the conversation.

Six NBA titles, a perfect NBA Finals win record, five NBA MVP Awards, 14 all-star appearances, 10 all-NBA first team honors, and thousands of opponents left wondering what they had just witnessed on the court will do that for a player.

Jordan's two spells with the Chicago Bulls between 1984-1998 helped the Windy City franchise create a dynasty that hasn't been replicated since. 

And while he wasn't wearing that iconic number 23 jersey during his recent shooting clinic, it will please any fan of the sport to see the legendary figure continue to make shots as he nears his 52nd birthday.

From the hardwood to the front office

As the face of one of the most successful and most iconic brands in the world, Michael Jordan has amassed a huge fortune away from the court. Jordan sneakers remain the most popular shoe for both players and fans alike and the legend has used his wealth to return to basketball in recent years.

Now the owner of the Charlotte Hornets, Jordan will be hoping to usher in a new period of success for the franchise he bought in 2010.

Having recently reverted back to the Hornets monicker Jordan has also brought in several key additions this offseason including former Indiana Pacer, Lance Stephenson. 

Should the Hornets be struggling come the turn of the year however maybe MJ can throw on a jersey one last time. Let's face it - judging by the video above he would still probably average more than Roy Hibbert these days.
