Unfortunately age catches up to everyone. I remember one of my childhood idols, Willie Mays, stumbling around in the Met outfield in his last season. Or Kareem having a pitiful last game in the '89 Finals.

That is why I really think that those that retire a little earlier, like Koufax, Jim Brown, or Barry Sanders...will always leave us wondering just how much longer they could have coninued to be great.

It's a little bit like watching Ali getting his head smashed in by Larry Holmes in 1980. You're yelling at the screen for Doug Collins to throw in the towel and get him out of there. "You're doing irreversible damage!!"

At least MJ wasn't the most washed up player in the game. Nice to see a glimpse of the late Reign Man.

Larry Hughes dropped 44 on a Kobe when he was with the Warriors, and Kobe wasn't an old man.

I love how these idiots bring up Arenas' 60 pt game. He scored 15 of those points on Kobe. It wasn't like Crawford dropping 50 on Wade with Wade on him the whole game.
