Like a Fine Wine…

Michael Jordan played a total of 142 games for the Washington Wizards from age 38 to 40.  He set several records for his age as well as being the only Wizard to play all 82 games in 2002-03.

On December 29, 2001, the 38-year-old jordan scored 51 points against the Hornets.  He broke two records in the 38 minutes he was on the court; the oldest player to ever score 50 and for most points in one quarter against the Hornets with 24.  He shot 21/38 from the field and 9/10 from the free-throw line.

Days later, he scored 39 against the Nets who had Jason Kidd and Kenyon Martin on the floor.

As he aged, Jordan was still able to prove his complete dominance.
