GREENBURGH, N.Y. (AP) - The New York Knicks are old, though they insist not too old to contend for an NBA title.
They stocked their roster this summer with two players who will turn 40 this season, could have two 38-year-old backups in the frontcourt, and one of their rookies is 35.
But center Tyson Chandler, who turned 30 on Tuesday, says he doesn't believe the Knicks have too many old players, noting that the average age isn't much higher than his Dallas Mavericks team that won the NBA title in 2011.
Chandler says, ``In order to win in this league, you've got to have veterans.''
Coach Mike Woodson agrees, and he got Kurt Thomas, who turns 40 Thursday; Jason Kidd (39), Marcus Camby (38) and could have 38-year-old Rasheed Wallace this week.
