Happy Birthday, Michael Jordan! Here’s You AARP Card

Michael Jordan recently turned 50, so the AARP decided it was time to issue him a card so he doesn’t miss out on senior discounts.

In recognition of Jordan’s 50th birthday Sunday, the American Association of Retired Persons tweeted a photo of its gift to him: His very own AARP card.

Every 50-year-old is eligible for AARP membership.

The card is mostly in good fun. As the LA Times kids: “It’s good to see a retired NBA star get something that will save him a buck or two. Jordan must be down to his last $500 million by now.”

Despite turning 50, Jordan proved last week that he can still ball with the best of them. The NBA hall of famer faced 19-year-old rookie Michael Kidd-Gilchrist in a one-on-one game, according to ESPN (Kidd-Gilchrist was the No. 2 pick in last year’s draft).

The result? Jordan won.

“It was hard for me,” Kidd-Gilchrist told USA Today of his match with a living legend. “I lost. I lost to a 50-year-old guy. … He’s the greatest man that ever played the game. Oh, yeah. He’s good.”

Kidd-Gilchrist also rebuffed any suggestion that he let Jordan win out of respect. “No. I didn’t allow him to beat me,” he said. “Because that’s my boss? Nah.”

Michael Jordan is owner of the Charlotte Bobcats, the team that drafted Kidd-Gilchrist.
