Michael Jordan 50th Birthday Sports Illustrated Cover Captures Iconic Dunk Contest Jam (Photo, Video)

A lot of people are going to feel old when they see this, but it’s still pretty awesome.

NBA legend Michael Jordan is turning 50 years old this week, and he’s getting yet another Sports Illustrated cover as part of the celebration. While it may be hard for fans to imagine Jordan passing the half-century mark, his SI cover has him doing it in style, capturing one of Jordan’s most iconic moments as he won the 1988 slam dunk contest.

Check out the rest of Jordan’s SI covers here, and see the dunk as it happened in the video below.
