At the tender age of 39, Michael Finley is considering a comeback to the NBA. We say, go for it. Finley did not exactly look like a spring chicken coming off the bench for the Spurs and Celtics in the 2009-10 season, but if he thinks he can make a difference for an NBA team as he closes in on the big 4-0, who are we to crush his dreams?

Last week it was Juan Dixon.
Now Michael Finley wants to call it a comeback.
Apparently age is nothing but a number to guys like Dixon (34 years old) and Finley (39 years old) as they still feel like they have something to offer to NBA teams around the league besides a chance to increase a teams’ average age.

DALLAS Michael Finley once told me that loyalty is not about how you're treated by a team while you're playing. It's about how you're treated when you're done playing.

The emotions are still too raw at the upper end of the Mavericks organization...
