And congratulations to shep for being able to flex his muscle and prove that he can name more uber-old players than we can. Mission accomplished.

You were around and remember all these guys? If so, i'm impressed. Were the centers really 6'3" white stiffs, or is that a myth like I thought?

i was really hoping this would be a list of the best 40 year old players ever. i think it would go something like:

stockton - 11pts, 8assts, 2stls

reggie - 15pts, 2brds, 2assts
(i'm not sure he made it past 39, but we'll grandfather him in anyway)

jordan - 20pts, 6brds, 4assts

karl - 20pts, 8brds, 5assts

kareem - 15pts, 6brds, 1blk

go 40's!
