34-year-old still produces but knows limitations

GRAND FORKS, N.D.
- The chest thumping and strong playoff performance last season were reminiscent of his days with Golden State. The spots of gray in his goatee and inability to dunk over opponents like he used to, however, remind you that Latrell Sprewell is 34 years old.
"I think I have my days," he said. "Some days you get up and feel good. Some days you feel 34. It just depends. I can't jump like I used to, but I just go out there.
"It's a thing where you're reacting. You're not thinking; you just play. Your body is only going to allow you to do so much anyway. You're still going hard, thinking you're attacking the basket the same way, you're not up as high, so you just finish however you can."
