By Aaron Humes: Retired NBA Hall of Famer and former All-Star, Marques Johnson, 65, asks himself the same question every year – can I still dunk a basketball?

We’ll spoil the answer for you: yes – from a standing start, masked and sanitized, in his own backyard.

Good friend and Film Commissioner for Belize, Nigel Miguel, shared the short Instagram film in wishing happy birthday to Johnson, whose birthday was February 8.

The men share the same alma mater, the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), and at least one film credit together – 1992’s White Men Can’t Jump with Woody Harrelson, Rosie Perez and Wesley Snipes.

Johnson had the longer career, playing 12 years for the Milwaukee Bucks, Los Angeles Clippers and Golden State Warriors; Miguel was the first Belizean drafted to the NBA but never played a game there after injuries curtailed his career.

Through Miguel, Johnson has other ties to Belize. He served as national team coach in 2010 when Belize won silver at the COCABA Games in Mexico and made an appearance at Centrobasquet in Puerto Rico, and has held regular basketball camps in Belize while assisting Belizean American ball players in the diaspora achieve their goals of getting into top basketball schools and professional leagues.

Congratulations to Johnson and happy belated birthday! To see the dunk itself, visit here.
