Smush Parker is remembered for frustrating the life out of Kobe Bryant, but can he still play at that level at 35?
We all know that age can weigh a heavy factor on a player’s ability to keep up with 20 years-olds, but with Vince Carter looking like he’s not slowing down anytime soon, he’s unintentionally inspiring others to want to see if they still have it.
Smush Parker hasn’t played in a decade, his last season being in 2007, do you think he can still play with the best of them? Not everyone is a Vince, Lebron or even DWade, but does that matter when it comes to being productive on the floor? Is the NBA missing out on great mentorship because they are slow to give older players a chance at redemption?
