Watch this new footage of Michael Jordan dunking in high school

You've probably never seen footage of Michael Jordan dunking in high school ... until now. (via MaxPreps)

It's hard to imagine Michael Jordan as anything other than an NBA superstar.  But as this footage shows, he too was a kid in the gym playing the sport he loved.

Despite it now being 30 years since Jordan began putting in real work at Laney High School, MaxPreps found early footage of Jordan carving up the court as a teenager.

It's easy to make out a young Jordan; he's the kid casually throwing down a one-handed slam off a fast break like it's nothing.

To think this was only the beginning.

H/T to Max Preps for the discovery.
