all 35 and older team

 

Marc Stein had this little diddy from the weekend dime on the all-35-and-over team... Please tell me that when you saw all the active players over the age of 35, you thought some of those guys were long gone...  

9. All-35-And-Over Team

 

 

Nash

 

Steve Nash is doing just fine without me making a big deal about his 36th birthday.

And I can't get him the things that would be really useful anyway.

Can't tweak the numbers to nudge his scoring average from 18.3 points per game back into the 19s to keep Nash on course to become the first player in NBA history to record a career-best average at the age of 35 or older.

Can't convince Tim Duncan to surrender his starting spot in the West to Dirk Nowitzki so Nash and his good buddy could be reunited in the most fitting way when Dallas hosts its first All-Star Game since 1986.

Can't help Nash with the holes in the Suns' roster, either.

But I'm still me. So I have to do something to commemorate Nash turning 36 on Sunday … and this is it.

ESPN.com is proud to unveil its official NBA All-35-And-Over Team, with Nash starting at guard alongside Jason Kidd in an alignment that would allow him to play off the ball and get plenty of shots up:

G: Steve Nash (Phoenix) 36

G: Jason Kidd (Dallas) 36

F: Grant Hill (Phoenix) 37

F: Marcus Camby (Los Angeles Clippers) 35

C: Shaquille O'Neal (Cleveland) 37

Sixth man: Ben Wallace (Detroit) 35

The other 12 active players 35 or older: Chucky Atkins (Detroit) 35: Michael Finley (San Antonio) 36; Derek Fisher (Los Angeles Lakers) 35; Juwan Howard (Portland) 37; Lindsey Hunter (Chicago) 39; Anthony Johnson (Orlando) 35; Antonio McDyess (San Antonio) 35: Kevin Ollie(Oklahoma City) 37; Theo Ratliff (San Antonio) 36; Jerry Stackhouse (Milwaukee) 35; Kurt Thomas (Milwaukee) 37; Rasheed Wallace(Boston) 35.
