Basketball star Michael Jordan says he intends to play again next year for the Washington Wizards, unless he decides he can not physically compete at a high level.

Jordan, who will turn 39 next month, tells the Washington Post he "can still be as dominant in different ways."

Jordan has led the Wizards with a 24.4 points-a-game average, and Washington has won 18 of 33 games so far this season, after winning only 19 games all last year without Jordan.
