NBA Veterans with the Most Left in the Tank

Ethan Sherwood Strauss@SherwoodStraussNBA Lead WriterSeptember 8, 2012

Every year, we're too quick to judge a veteran as washed up. We can't help it. As fans and pundits, we're wired towards being savvy, towards being the first to call a trend.

Well, quite a few veteran players are still near their prime levels. Sometimes, a whole team of discounted vets can rise up en masse. This is what happened in 2011 when the creaky Mavericks shockingly upset the Heat in a thrilling Finals.

Is there another Dallas waiting in the weeds this season? Which vets could make such a scenario happen?
