Watch Michael Jordan Work Out with Young Bobcats Team

Some veteran know-how in an NBA practice every now and then is never a bad thing, and the Charlotte Bobcats found that out firsthand when their owner showed up to go over a thing or two in a recent practice.

Michael Jordan, now teetering on the edge of 50, stopped by to work out with the Bobcats and share the knowledge that he picked up while he was busy being the best basketball player in the history of the NBA.

At nearly half his age, Gerald Henderson might have sounded a bit annoyed at an owner keeping such a close eye and a heavy hand in the basketball operations of the team, but he was extremely respectful.

Of course, every time we see MJ lacing up his sneakers to get down with the young bucks and try to give them a few pointers, there's always a whisper about whether or not he would still be able to play in the league today.

Well, Bismack Biyombo sure seemed to think so.

It might be a bit strange to see an owner in practice, and I'm sure the Chicago Bulls aren't sitting around waiting for Jerry Reinsdorf to come down and show them how to box out the next time they get out-rebounded.

There's no doubt that it's a bit unorthodox, but it has to be somewhat inspiring to see the team's owner, who happens to be the most iconic sports figure since Babe Ruth, come down and work on jump shots and footwork with you.
