NBA legend and Charlotte Hornets owner Michael Jordan has finally answered the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge after being tasked with the cause by David Beckham, Derek Jeter and Ray Allen.

The challenge itself really has reached the peak of the sporting mountain with the great 'Air Jordan' finally taking part.

Millions of dollars have already been raised for the research towards Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, often referred to as Lou Gehrig's Disease and the increase in awareness will substantially help the future of ALS treatment.

Jordan took the plunge on Wednesday morning and the video of the former Bulls star was uploaded by Matt Milmore of Barstool Sports.

The Hornets owner conducts himself in his usual poise and confidence as he explains who he has accepted the challenge from before choosing his own victims for the ice cold drenching.

Jordan laid down the gauntlet to New York Knicks President Phil Jackson who was his former head coach with the Chicago Bulls and also challenged his teammates of the original '1992 US Dream Team'.

Not only did he expect them to complete the ice cold showering but also awaits their generous donations to the deserved cause.

Now for Jordan's attempt, the video miraculously cuts away before you can hear the anticipated shrieks of the 51-year-old, Jordan never was one to show any sign of weakness and he must of thought of his adoring fans who couldn't stand to see the greatest player of all time be defeated by some icy water.

Now the attention turns to the other stars of the 'Dream Team', most excitingly Charles Barkley who will certainly have a humorous rendition of the Ice Bucket Challenge.
