career?

Michael Jordan at 40 wasn't nearly what he was athletically as his younger days, but it was still pretty impressive considering his age and mileage. Though, he had some years away from basketball.

Grant Hill is pretty athletic for 40, had some years away from it as well, though his was from injury.

Who else? Anybody who didn't miss a lot of time and maintained a lot athleticism until around that age?

SHAQ had a few good years of old age because of his size. Centers got smaller towards the end of his career so he was able to get by with his weight.

Shawn Marion isnt THAT old but he's pretty athletic still.
Vince can still do windmill alley oops and do some nasty things sometimes, but he's not nearly as athletic as he used to be. Not even close but hes still more athletic than any other 35 year old.


I hope no one says Kemp. I wanted to vomit when I compared him in his days playing center vs his young days

Julius Erving could probably jump higher and run the floor faster than 75 percent of the league even in the final minutes of his career with gray hair
