Default Re: How old do you think you can carry on playing basketball til?

Idk...I've always been more of a cerebral player as opposed to an athlete. I get my enjoyment from outsmarting people or making good passes. I'm always going to be pretty long, have a jumper and the ability to pass. IMO I should be ale to really compete in summer leagues until like 40. I hope to be playing in the over 30 leagues until I'm 60 provided my body holds up(knock on wood).

The battle isn't so much that you are getting older and's all the responsibility that comes with age. I'm 28 and I can't play anymore because my hours are crazy. If you are working 70 hours per week your body just isn't going to be the same and that is what scares me.
