In case there were any doubts, His Airness can still throw it down.

Now 50 years old, Michael Jordan, the six-time NBA champion and Charlotte Bobcats owner, dunked at his annual "Flight School" basketball camp at the University of California, Santa Barbara.

Lest we forget how Jordan ended his 2009 Hall of Fame induction speech, "One day you might look up and see me playing the game at 50. Oh, don't laugh. Never say never. Because limits, like fears, are often just an illusion."

Earlier this year, Jordan also sat down with ESPN's Wright Thompson and broke down how he'd guard Miami Heat star LeBron James.

Playing at 50? Probably not. Dunking? Well, that's not longer an illusion.

The camp's Twitter account (@MJFlightSchool) tweeted this as proof:
