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?
Then again, Finley’s comeback should be given the go-ahead with one stipulation: That he never again attempt his atrocious “cartwheel dunk” from the 1997 NBA Slam Dunk Contest, if he is even still capable of a cartwheel at his age.
Check out the dunk, which may be the worst in the history of the contest, in the video below.
