Antonio McDyess will look to find a team after sitting last season out.credit: wikimedia.org
After 15 years in the NBA and a year of retirement, former All-Star Antonio McDyess is reportedly looking to make a comeback. That’s right, the same Antonio McDyess that is 38 years old and spent his last two seasons averaging less than 6 points and 6 rebounds per game.
McDyess certainly had some good years in the league, but you have to think that his time is pretty much up. In the 2000-2001 season, he averaged 21 points and 12 rebounds for the Denver Nuggets, but that was over a decade ago.
After sitting out a season in retirement, former All-Star forward Antonio McDyess is contemplating a return to the NBA.
McDyess, 38, has been working out in Houston and has instructed his agent, Andy Miller, to gauge league interest in him.
“He would consider coming back and I will be reaching out to select teams,” Miller told Yahoo! Sports on Thursday night.
You have to wonder how serious the market is for a 38-year-old power forward who sat out last season. That being said, the Knicks did go out and sign 38-year-old Rasheed Wallace after he sat out the past two seasons. Unfortunately for McDyess, the rest of the league might not be as ambitious as the Knicks for old power forwards.
The best chance for Antonio McDyess to find a team will probably be as an end of the bench guy who serves as a veteran leader for some of the younger players. Other than that, I can’t see it. You have to believe his time is over.

SHINY HAPPY PEOPLE
David Aldridge asked Spurs coach Gregg Popovich how 'happy' he was with shot selection during a piece for TNT in between the third and fourth quarter of last night's Spurs' 86-84 victory over OKC.... Full story at Bob's Blitz ~ http://www.bobsblitz.com
Spurs guard Manu Ginobili was again ruled out for Thursday night's game against Oklahoma City because of a back problem. He could make his season debut this weekend.
Ginobili didn't play in San Antonio's season-opening win Wednesday at New Orleans and missed half the preseason because of back problems. Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said Ginobili ''is really close...

Interviewing San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich can be torturous at times. Whether it be his one-worded answers or his snarky responses, Pop can sure give it back to the media. And nothing summed it up more than TNT's David Aldridge's interview with Pop during last night's game versus the Thunder. When Aldridge used the word "happy" during the interview...
Gregg Popovich has never been a big fan of speaking with reporters during games, and that clearly is not going to change in his 17th season as head coach of the San Antonio Spurs. On Wednesday night, TNT’s David Aldridge caught up with Popovich just before the fourth quarter of the Spurs game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Per usual, Pop was in no mood to talk.
When San Antonio Spurs' Tony Parker nailed the game-winning shot on the Oklahoma City Thunder last night, the players rushed him to celebrate the win. There were smiles all around, hugs being given and all around jubilation.
Kawhi Leonard, also rushed TP to congratulate his teammate, but in true Kawhi fashion, showed little emotion. This might be the biggest "grin"...
In consecutive nights, San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker was given the ball on the perimeter, definitely not Parker’s strong suit, and both times Parker delivered with a late-game three-pointer to give the Spurs a chance at a win.
Tonight it was even sweeter as Parker hit the three and followed with a buzzer-beater on a midrange jumper that swished through the net as time...
Wednesday night in New Orleans wasn’t exactly scripted as planned. The San Antonio Spurs, who finished with the best record in the Western Conference last season and had their entire team back, struggled against the number one overall pick Anthony Davis and the New Orleans Hornets Wednesday, however by the end of the night, the ending result was similar to the original script...
Some would say that Tim Duncan was never a theatrical Wham-Bam-Thank-You-Maam dunker, but the advanced aged San Antionio Spurs star shows younger Oklahoma City Thunder player, Serge Ibaka, that he still has moves on Thursday night.The post Tim Duncan Dunks On Serge Ibaka (Video) appeared first on The NBA Mistress.
"Get that ish outta here"
The San Antonio Spurs are looking for their best start to a season in five years, and now they may have Manu Ginobili back.
A matchup with the Utah Jazz could help them remain unbeaten.
With Ginobili possibly available, the Spurs attempt to continue their dominance of the Jazz on Saturday night after sweeping them out of the playoffs last season.
San Antonio (2-0) hasn't opened...
Since there was only one game on the NBA schedule yesterday, the Oklahoma City Thunder and San Antonio Spurs featured our dunk of the night.
Watch as San Antonio forward Tim Duncan lowers the boom on Thunder forward Serge Ibaka:
In addition to Tony Parker hitting that buzzer beater on Thursday night to lift the Spurs over the Thunder, Tim Duncan reminded you why he is still one of the best power forwards in basketball. Duncan may be a 15-year NBA vet but he can still get up. Check out his dunk on Serge [...]
The NBA season is fully underway for 2012-2013, and it's right on time for this hoops junkie. You would figure the first post of the new season would be a nasty slam dunk by some high flyer or a great defensive play, but you aren't that lucky.
San Antonio Spurs head coach Greg Popovich has got to be at the top of the list of coaches who can deliver great soundbites, and...
