I think I'll be able to play until I'm 45. I am 27, and just found the elixir of youth. I'm serious. Ice cold showers. I didn't realize how ridiculously awesome they are for recovery and making your body feel good. At 27, I feel better than I ever have in my entire life. I've played basketball 6 days in a row, and I feel like I am getting stronger everyday.

I've had lower back problems my whole life. I do a 10 minute stretching routine everyday, no exceptions, and hit my body (and especially lower back) with the 2 minute ice cold shower. I actually just finished dominating and just got back. I just hopped on ISH after my shower, and my body feels like I didn't even play.

If you don't do it..i'd suggest four things, get leaner, drink juice (from a juicer), take ice cold showers, and find a stretching routine that works on your weaknesses.

I'm 39, and coming off achilles surgery about 2 years back and I'm still playing. I run in two different leagues (not high comp or anything like that anymore) and try to play pick up games at least once a week.

I definitely can't jump like I used to and I've lost a step (or three), but I'm still the best rebounder on any court I play on.

I'm 32 and still play about 3 times a week.



I had a professor in College who had to be in his 70's, and he played ball twice a week.

I probably already mentioned this here but I just played ball with him a few days ago so it's fresh on my mind - my brother is almost 32 and he's playing about as well as he has in 15 years. He's probably in better shape than ever and he's dunking again and whatnot. He pretty much abandoned the game over the past decade so maybe that can give you guys hope that it's never too late to get back in it and excel, perhaps better than you ever had before.

How's your athleticism? Have you seen a decline between now and say, age 28?

I think I can be effective til I'm like in my 60's. After that I will just be too slow up and down the court. I will have lost my ability to defend effectively by the time I'm 40 probably because already right now quicker people give me fits.... but hey as long one can rain, make smart decisions, give what they have... a person could play for a long ass time.

Oh and don't get fat. That's probably the biggest kicker

That's actually one of the beautiful things about the game of basketball. It's wonderfully fun and it's a great way to get in shape (or stay in shape). My brother just recently decided to really get back into the game and, along with a bit of running and lifting, he's dropped about 60 pounds in under a year. Basketball's a win-win. So I'm just kind of hopeful I can stay in the game for a while so I don't have to resort to relying upon, like, jogging as my primary means of exercise.

At 33, I was keeping up with starting HS point guards that are very well conditioned. Ofcouse I was putting in more time for cardio and was more conditioned. I still had 40 year olds giving me fits, so sky is the limit.

Your best playing years would be from 18-35...

For most people there is obvious decline when reaching 30...

But they are a couple of guys in the 50s that I played against that are still good. Their shooting is accurate and they just play jason kidd style, controlling the tempo and being a good passer.

Its really up to you, if recreationally, I think most people can play till 60. if at a high level to 35 or late 30s.

I`ll be 37 this month and came back last year after a 11 year lay off
3 weeks ago I broke my index finger (lefty "luckily") during pick up ball, and doc says it`ll heal in about 6 months..dang,very depressing! But I`ll keep playing, this is my last chance lol. Also doing some work outs to try to be able to dunk again...we`ll see.
