The San Antonio Spurs seem to want the distinction of being the oldest professional athletic team. They have 8 players 30-years old and older. David West accepted a contract with the Spurs that was 10 million dollars less than what he would have made with his old team, the Pacers. When asked “why”, he said “I have accomplished what I want except for winning a championship. ”LaMarco Aldridge is 30, Tim Duncan is 39, Tony Parker is 33, and Manu Ginobili is 38. These 5 players will play a significant number of minutes with the Spurs this year. In pro sports, these players are considered beyond old. In fact, it was suggested that they sign up for AARP and look into retirement homes after this season. Now, since I have said this, the Spurs are expected to win the title again this year!
