Today is Michael Jordan’s birthday. Can you believe the NBA star is now 48-years-old? It feels like only yesterday he was making slam dunks for the Chicago Bulls, and he remains a great role model for kids around the world. Unlike other sport stars, Michael Jordan has maintained his charismatic and drug-free appeal, truly encapsulating everything it takes to be a wonderful role model for kids.

So how did the star choose to spend his 48th birthday? By playing basketball, of course!  Michael Jordan laced up his Air Jordans to play with the Bobcats, the team he owns. So does the former MVP still have what it takes? “He’s Mike. He’s been kicking out butts,” answered forward Gerald Wallace. “He still has it.”

Head coach Larry Silas was impressed with Mike’s moves, “He’s holding these guys accountable and it’s great,” said Silas. “I love him out there.”

Jordan won’t be signing contracts to play in the big leagues anytime soon, though. According to reports, the basketball star had ice packs on both knees after the intensive work out. Jordan signed his last ever contract with The Wizards back in 2001. Lately, Michael Jordan has been spending a lot of time at practices, and relaxing.
