Jordan I would imagine would top that list, Kareem, Duncan.

How would you rank the top 5?

Steve Nash... 12ppg 11Apg on 53 percent shooting and 39 percent from the 3.

Unsure of how this matches up

38 is such a bad number though... the list has to be extremely small... 35 would have been the better more ideal number no?

I think 35 would be too many. Point is really old guys. Ill allow 37.

The Mailman averaged 22/9/4 with 2 steals at the age of 38 in 2001-02.

Greg Oden? Played great for a guy in his mid 50's.

I expect Lebron to be around 20/6/7 at that age

It seems to be mostly point guards and big men who age the best. Wings are too dependent on athleticism. But I think we'll see older players with the new emphasis on shooting and ball movement.

PG: John Stockton, Jason Kidd, Steve Nash
SG: Ray Allen, Vince Carter
SF: Michael Jordan, Grant Hill
PF: Karl Malone, Tim Duncan
C: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Robert Parish, Dikembe Mutombo

Stockton led the league in assists per36 at 40 years old. Throw him, Duncan, Kareem Malone and Jordan at 38 on the same team, and that is a championship line up.

Have Nash and Kidd coming off the bench with Moses.

Mark Jackson actually played at a high level at 38. When he was backing up Stockon, I think Stockton was first in assists per36 and Jackson was second, and if memory serve right, they were also the two oldest PGs in the league.

Pretty impressive. Though I heard Jackson was bad in the locker room and was really divisive.

Yeah Jackson was a douche. He thought he should have been the starter over Stockton. But whatever.

Duncan - 14/9/3/2, still one of the best defenders while on the court.

Yea, and once he got more minutes in the playoffs, he was at 18/11/3/2 which are similar to what his Per36 for the regular season would be.

Some good names overall mentioned here

Naw. His body broke down pretty much like a mid-50 or 60 year old guy's would.

(not missing your sarcasm, just adding on)

In no way should Jackson have been the PG over Stockton, but, I have to say, it was still impressive how efficient both of those guys were that season.


But that season really shows you the problems Jackson has had with handling people. He seems to create us-and-them situation, which as a player is a big enough problem (look how it tainted Thomas's career and the antagonism between him and Jordan), but it is an even bigger problem with a career as an executive/coach (I point again to Thomas). I was defensive of Jackson as a coach, and give him credit for developing that Warriors team and helping them improve, but when I heard the stories of him alienating certain players, I remembered what I read about him in Utah, and though: yup, he hasn't changed. That kind of approach is not going to work for a coach in this league.

It's too bad, because Jackson has a great basketball mind.


Still... Stockton averaging 10 assists per36 and Jackson averaging over 9, at 40 and 37 years respectively? That is amazing. I think Stockton was first and Jackson was 3rd (behind Jason Williams). There might have been a couple others but I didn't feel like going through the entire league.

I know Stockton was the oldest PG in the league (and I think player overall), and I'm pretty sure that Jackson was the second oldest PG.

Crazy level of performance from guys that old.

It's crazy because Karl was able to be so durable and we're seeing that with LeBron (who is more durable than Karl was). I wouldn't be surprised if he averaged 20/6/7 at that age -- still being a top ten player. He's become more than an athletic player.

Crazy that Malone had his best season at 33 years old. That is a heck of a curve.
