"Once or twice a year, we empty the entire ball rack by throwing or punting each ball into the stands, then make the rookies climb the steps to get each ball. I'm not sure why, but I really like doing that." - Nick Collison
Michael Finley - Finley didn't secure a new contract over the summer, and fell out of the NBA at age 37. At that age, and with his talents withered away to the point that he is a marginal NBA player, he is not likely to return. But all it takes is one or two major injuries to a contending team, and he could be right back, spotting up for big playoff threes.
Michael Finley - Finley started 77 games in 2008/09, but it was last year, the year in which he turned 37, that he finally jumped the shark. He shot the three pointer well for the Celtics, yet was bad for the Spurs, and put up career lows across the board. There's not much left to Finley now, and none of it is coming back.
Note: Non-US teams that the player
has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in
that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not
the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where
no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League
split in Japan.
