Twenty-three years after retiring from the NBA, Marques Johnson clearly still has game — and he has video evidence to prove it.
The 56-year-old struggles in his first few throwdown attempts, refusing an arena worker’s offer to lower the hoop from the regulation 10-foot height before finally succeeding in what he claims is the new Pavilion’s first dunk.
Last year’s installment of the ritual was equally thrilling, with Johnson, then 55,dunking over a car in homage to Blake Griffin’s incredible performance at the All-Star Dunk Contest.
Other former NBA stars have recently put out videos of themselves dunking at their advanced age. Last year, 47-year-old Spud Webb showed he can still throw down, while Michael Jordan showed off his hops at the age of 48.
