    Sports Guy says that he scoured the internet to find out what shooting guards did not decline precipitously after age 32 and came up with only one name: Reggie Miller.
    Michael Jordan?

    Unless you're talking about hitting a curveball.

    The actual simmons quote is

    4:30 pm (PT): Thanks to rumors that the Celtics might trade the No. 5 pick, Wally Szczerbiak and Delonte West for a soon-to-be 32-year-old shooting guard coming off double ankle surgeries (Ray Allen), I just spent the last 20 minutes on basketball-reference.com trying to find one great shooting guard who didn't decline significantly in Years 12 through 14 of his NBA career. Here's the list: Reggie Miller. That's it. Also, I just threw up in my mouth and some of it went up the back of my nose.



    Jordan's scoring did drop from years 12-15:

    31ppg to 30 to 26 to 21

    FG% also dropped 49 to 47 to 42 to 44

    Not a precipitous dropoff except for the last year in ppg


    he is right that Reggie's numbers in years 13 & 14 were about the same as years 11&12
