Alvin Gentry, the 60-year-old associate head coach for the Golden State Warriors, successfully dunked a basketball on camera during practice this week after a first failed attempt.

Jarron Collins, a Warriors assistant coach, caught Gentry’s dunk during Monday's practice before Tuesday's Game 6 of the NBA Finals and posted the video to Instagram.

“Age ain't nothing but a number. Alvin 'Skywalker' Gentry still getting up to throw down,” Collins captioned the video.

Amazed at Gentry’s ability despite his age, the video evoked incredulous Twitter responses from fans.



Other Warriors fans took to Twitter to express how they felt about the fact that Gentry is in his final days with the team.



Gentry’s dunk showed that he still has plenty of steam left over from the days when he played basketball for Appalachian State University. Even though he has been coaching since 1980, according to SB Nation, he has been making the most out of his final days as the Warriors coach. Gentry is set to become head coach for the New Orleans Pelicans next season.

The Golden State Warriors beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 105-97 to win the NBA Championship on Tuesday.
