On the anniversary date of two of Michael Jordan’s most iconic NBA performances, it’s only fitting he hit the court to show some friends that he’s still got it.

Jordan was spotted in the Bahamas playing some pickup ball with New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and professional golfer Keegan Bradley, and in the one brief video glimpse we get of the action, Jordan (of course) drains the step-back jumper, and calls for the and-1 in the process.

20 years ago today, Jordan had his famous “Double Nickel” game at Madison Square Garden, where he dropped 55 points in a win over the Knicks.

(Jordan Brand even released a remastered retro version of the Jordan X sneaker today to commemorate the occasion.)

25 years ago today, Jordan scored a career-high 69 points in a win over the Cavaliers.
