A Toyota-sponsored Japanese basketball team Alvark Tokyo has just unveiled ‘CUE,’ a basketball-playing robot that has perfect accuracy when it comes to free throws. When they pitted the robot against professional players, CUE won, but apart from its great shooting skills there is not much else it can do.

Not sure this robot can even come close to doing what MJ did, it’s got a long way to go before we start calling it the GOAT. Check out some of the funny tweets below, Twitter is never off its game.

Can it dunk? Is it able to jump from the free throw line?

Only Michael Jordan can make a Scottie Pippen because Michael Jordan made Scottie Pippen Scottie Pippen.
