SHARE Watch: Rare footage of Michael Jordan dunking in high school

MaxPreps has unearthed some rare footage of Bulls legend Michael Jordan dunking during his days at Laney High School in North Carolina.

Long before he was Air Jordan, MJ was a two-year starter on the Laney varsity team, culminating in a senior campaign in which he averaged a triple-double and earned a spot in the McDonald’s All-American Game, according to MaxPreps.

Check out the footage below of Jordan — still wearing No. 23 — throwing down a one-handed dunk on a fast break.

The full video includes a montage of Jordan in high school:
