Michael Jordan Video: Watch Air Jordan Dunk with Ease at 48 Years Old

David Daniels@TheRealDDanielsSenior Writer IJuly 19, 2011

Michael Jordan is tired of being compared to LeBron James and Kobe Bryant.

Earlier in the NBA offseason, LeBron threw down a dunk during his basketball camp, posterizing one of his campers during a game of knockout and sending the young boy flying.  About a week later, Kobe cleared the lane for a 360 slam at his camp even though he just recovered from knee surgery.  

Michael Jordan, in an attempt to end the comparisons, showed he can still ball by getting up and throwing it down in front of his campers with "anything you can do I can do better" in the back of his mind.

He dunked that easily too.  Would it really surprise you if he could still take some of his own Charlotte players one-on-one?  Of course, he'd have to get into shape first, but if he can still throw it down with a few lazy trots toward the hoop, His Airness may just be able to take off from the free-throw line...

OK, that's a stretch, but I wouldn't bet money against the man who was still putting up 20 points a game at 40 years old against Gerald "19.4 percent from downtown" Henderson, Garrett Temple, Dominic McGuire or Eduardo Najera. (Wow, how did the Bobcats manage to win 34 games with those names?)

Even if he couldn't pull that off, I think it's pretty safe he could take any owner one-on-one.  Yes, even Mark Cuban.
