It’s always fun to see our favorite NBA players showing off their moves again. It’s not just us, Los Angeles Lakers legend Odom was also stunned to watch MJ pulling up from mid-range on Twitter recently. Resharing the clip on his X account, he wrote, “MJ cool as f**k for this.” This is a 9-year-old clip featuring the Chicago Bulls legend with Tom Terrific on his team in the Bahamas. In 2015, a 51-year-old Jordan joined a 37-year-old Tom Brady, and pro golfers Keegan Bradley and Luke Donald, to play a semi-casual 3v3 pickup game during their vacation.

Well, it was meant to be a light game. But when you put a 5x NFL MVP and a 5x NBA MVP on the same team, they are simply not going to lose. Keegan Bradley later recalled how Tom Brady, who Bradley was tasked with guarding, was aggressively going for rebounds during their matchup.
