We all know about Michael Jordan and his ability to stay in the air longer than the people who play basketball daily. But today, hang-time is all about how well you can suspend yourself jumping and add some excitement to the game. Such is a privilege granted to only a chosen few, the ones with good legs and who have practiced gliding in the air which is quite appealing for basketball fanatics.

Many consider this as an overused term but it is still widely known today. Jordan has retired and many claim that it is something that is passé. We see it all around especially in the NBA and the higher you can jump the better chances you have of being considered a basketball star.

For people outside basketball, they term it as something which delays a certain activity or procedure. But of the two, it is obviously associated with basketball.
