You have some mighty big shoes to fill when you are the son of legendary basketball player Michael Jordan, but Marcus Jordan is beginning to compile a pretty impressive highlight reel of his own. Check out the ‘Marcus Jordan Dunk’ video below.
This kid is nasty on the court! As a senior at Whitney Young he was ranked by ESPNU as the 100th best shooting guard in the country, where he led the Dolphins to a 4A State Championship. Now the 6’ 3” 200 lb sophomore is coming into his own at UCF.
Last night Marcus Jordan intercepted a terrible inbound pass thrown from the baseline by Stetson player Ridge Graham. Immediately Graham rushed to defend #5, which turned out to be a big mistake for the sophomore, because he wound up getting posterized!
The spectacular dunk was featured as the number 7 play on Sports Centers Top 10… I thought it should have been in the top 5. How bout you?
Is the name ‘Air Jordan’ going to be passed down a generation? If Marcus keeps making plays like this one I would certainly think so. Although I must mention that Central Florida was playing Stetson who were heavily outmatched talent wise.
The person that nobody has really been mentioning is Marcus’ older brother Jeff, who also plays for University of Central Florida…Probably because Jeff rides the pine, and Marcus makes brilliant plays… Just sayin’
Do you think UCF (4-0) will continue to go undefeated? What did you think of the Marcus Jordan Dunk? Share your answers along with anything else that is on your mind in the comment section.
