Which Players Could Take Their Final Bow in 2014 NBA Playoffs?

The 2014 NBA playoffs aren't even a week old, and they've already occasioned coming-out parties for some of the game's brightest young stars.

Damian Lillard has continued to make a name for himself—this time at the expense of the Houston Rockets. John Wall and Bradley Beal have had their way with the Chicago Bulls, leading the Washington Wizards back to the brink of postseason success in the process. Jeff Teague torched the Indiana Pacers' vaunted defense in Game 1 of the Atlanta Hawks' first-round series, and DeMar DeRozan did the same to the Brooklyn Nets on behalf of the Toronto Raptors in Game 2.

Chances are, though, we'll have many more years to celebrate these and other up-and-comers as they work their way from promising prospects to bona fide superstars. If there are any players whose performances we should be savoring right now, it's the old guys. This year's pro edition of the Big Dance is practically teeming with familiar faces who are getting up there in basketball years. 

And I'm not just talking about Dirk Nowitzki. The giant German may be 35, but he's shown no signs of slowing down and has already made it clear that he wants to play for another two or three years.

The same can't be said for these 10 stalwarts, each of whom could at least consider calling it quits once the Association's "Second Season" comes to a close.
