Power Ranking the 5 Best NBA Stars over 35

The NBA has become a game for the young and freakishly athletic, but the league still has stars over the age of 35 who are making a significant impact.

As the athletes get better, the game of basketball is transitioning into something we've never seen before. The speed, the jumping ability and the strength of the new players is becoming almost super-human. The older players that relied on their athletic ability are becoming dinosaurs, while the true stars who depend on their brains and fundamentals are still around finding ways to help their team. 

There are less and less players in the NBA that were drafted in the 90s. Shaquille O'Neal is gone. Rasheed Wallace is gone. Heck, Tracy McGrady and Vince Carter are both basically gone.

Coincidentally, the best current NBA stars over the age of 35 were all free agents. Some moved to new teams, while some returned to their teams for a last hoorah.
