List Rules Only current NBA players age 35 and over

With the average age of an NBA player being 26.5 years old, the league's veteran players definitely deserve props.

Seasoned vets also have higher basketball IQs and make great leaders for their teams. Who are the best current NBA veterans playing today? 

At 40, Sacramento Kings' Vince Carter is the oldest active NBA player. Currently playing in his 22nd season, the 8-time All-Star can still dunk on the young bloods. Many veteran NBA players, like Dwyane Wade, Dirk Nowitzki, and Manu Ginobili, are also future Hall of Famers because of their long successful careers.
