If you had to make up a team with players that are 33 years old or older, who would you pick. A full team of 12 players at the proper positions, so: 2 PGs, 2 SGs, 2 SFs, 2 PFs, 2 Cs and 2 extras of any position



My team:

Starting Five
PG - Jason Kidd
SG - Jerry Stackhouse
SF - Grant Hill
PF -Chris Webber
C - Shaquille O'Neal

Bench
PG - Sam Cassell
SG - Eddie Jones
SF - Michael Finley
PF - Robert Horry
C - Alonzo Mourning
11 - Kurt Thomas
12 - Donyell Marshall


Guys left out but were considered: PJ Brown, Clif Robinson, Juwon Howard and Gary Payton

Be interesting to see how these old timers performed together because the above team is one great team, championship caliber actually!

Let's see:

Starting Five

PG. - Jason Kidd
SG.- Eddie Jones (Stackhouse is 32, if I'm not wrong)
SF.- Grant Hill
PF.- PJ Brown
C.- Shaq

Bench

PG.- Sam Cassell
SG.- Finley
SF.- Bruce Bowen
PF.-Robert Horry
C.- Mourning
11.- Brent Barry
12.- Gary Payton

Webber is, at this point, a bad fit for any team. Can't defend and can't move... not a good combination.

Also, I considered Jalen Rose, but finally decided to pick Brent Barry instead.

Post knee injury, Webber looks like he is moving in slow motion. He used to be smooth and explosive going to the basket. He does still handle the ball quite well for a big man. With his bum knee, his future model of play may be Sabonis.

PG. - Jason Kidd
SG.- Sam Cassel (He shoots enough to play that spot)
SF.- Grant Hill
PF.- Chris Webber (He's still remarkably effective without moving at all)
C.- Shaq

Webber is still a talent and would be great surrounded by great players like Shaq. It would allow him to shoot the way he likes

Probably wanna move this to the Sports section, mod miggy.

And I agree with TMC's team (I'd probably start Finley over Jones, though).

Yeah, could be. Although I'd like to have some more punch coming from the bench. You know, with that team, no one is a starter and no one is a bench player. It all would change on the way they perform in each game.

btw, already moved to the sports forum.

One of the things I wanted to show with this thread was how great some over 33 year old players are. There are still some real superstars that are older, like Kidd and Shaq. Superstars tend to stay superstars until the end of their careers

Not so many... we have enough to make a team, and two or three more players that could make it, but that's all.

If this thread has showed me something, is that there are not as many vets that still can play at a high level as I thought.

Not in the last 4 or 5 years but before then, players like Jordan, Malone, Drexler and Stockton all played great until the end of their careers

Kidd is amazing, no matter how old he gets. Every season, I wait for it to catch up to him. Every season, it never happens.

I don't know WHAT those critics are talking about when they say he's having trouble with quicker guards. First of all, that's always been the case. Secondly, he's still getting triple-doubles like crazy.

Yeah, he still can't shoot to save his life, but that's been the case his whole career. Probably the only reason he hasn't done more in all this years. If not, he'd have (at least) a MVP title... and maybe a few rings.

If Kidd could shoot, than Dallas would have never traded him.

Hey, you never know... they let Nash go without compensation. After that, I can believe anything.
