Kurt Thomas has not thought of retiring

The body is fine and the mind is still sharp. In fact, the only time Kurt Thomas feels old is when he’s wearing his Knicks uniform. After all, No. 40 just turned 40.

“I feel the same as yesterday,” Thomas says. “No difference.”

The Knicks really are aging right before our eyes. On Tuesday, Tyson Chandler celebrated his 30th birthday and on Thursday, Thomas celebrated his milestone with a three-hour practice with his teammates in Greenburgh. Thomas is the NBA’s oldest player, but he not only feels that he can contribute this season, he still believes he has a few good years left in him.

“I never think about retiring,” Thomas said. “Until no one wants my services anymore, then I’ll start thinking about that. But until then I’m always focusing on the next season.”
