At 39 years old, Legends point guard Mike James is the oldest active player in the D-League … or the NBA. In his 17th pro season, he has crisscrossed through 11 NBA rosters since 2001 and remains convinced he can play there again.

“I may have one, two more years left,” the 6-2 James said recently. “I still believe that I’m one of the 300 best that’s in the world.”

Renaldo Balkman is “only” 30 years old, a 6-8 Legends forward. Balkman was the New York Knicks’ surprising No. 20 overall draftee in 2006. He started 12 games in six seasons for the Knicks and Denver Nuggets and has been out of the NBA since 2012.

“There’s a place for me somewhere in the NBA,” Balkman said. “I’ve just got to find that.”
