The video that you see above is not the result of CGI graphics. It is in fact a 73-year-old man playing basketball. And as amazing as that is, this is probably even more amazing. He's on the Roane State junior college basketball team.
Yes, you read that right.

Now, if you're saying to yourself, 'How in God's name can a 73-year-old make a basketball team?', it's because Roane State only has 4 students on campus. No, I kid. Mink was kicked out of school in 1956, and so technically he still has NCAA eligibility left.
Apparently there's also talk that Mink might get some game time when the season finally starts, which means an automatic 10 points for whoever he's guarding for those brief 30 seconds. But all that said, you have to hand it to the guy. He can still hit shots and we'll all be lucky if we can move like he does at 73.
I just wish he could dunk. Imagine getting dunked on by a 73-year-old. That'd be more embarrassing than getting dunked on by a dude in a wheelchair.
