PHOTO: Michelle Wie dunks like Michael Jordan in Nike shoot


Michelle Wie's wrist injury might be keeping her from swinging a golf club right now, but it didn't preclude her from dunking a basketball in a new Nike shoot.

The reigning U.S. Women's Open champion called herself Air Wiezy in the Instagram caption. Who knows how much this was Photoshopped, much less if the basket is actually 10 feet tall or if she jumped off a trampoline to get this high. But Wie did post a picture earlier in the week of her dunking a football over uprights, so there's a chance the 6-footer could pull off a legit dunk.

Either way, her Jordan form is solid.
