Old guys still have fantasy value

Allen Iverson is averaging 4.6 rebounds, 6.4 assists and 2.0 steals per game.
Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Yes, basketball is a young man's game with LeBron James and Dwight Howard leading the way, but some of the league's older players are showing they still have some fantasy fuel left in the tank.

Rasheed Wallace, F, Detroit - Rasheed put up 25 points and 13 rebounds as the Pistons handed the Los Angeles Lakers their first loss. It was his fifth double-double in eight games this season.

Brad Miller, C, Sacramento - Miller is that rare commodity - a big man who gets you assists as well as rebounds and points. He has four double-doubles in five games and has added at least six assists in his last four games.

Ray Allen, G, Boston - He's not the 24-26 ppg scorer he was in Seattle, but he is still filling up a number of categories. His rebounding average is the highest its been in his career (5.4) and he adds 2.6 assists and .9 steals.

Allen Iverson, G, Detroit - His points are down from 26 ppg he averaged last year in Denver to 22.4 through the first five games this season with Detroit, but he contributes across the board. He is averaging 4.6 rebounds, 6.4 assists and 2.0 steals per game.

Shaquille O'Neal, C, Phoenix - With Steve Nash sidelined for a one-game suspension, O'Neal took control like in the "old days," posting 29 points, 10 rebounds, six assists, one steal and one block. It was the third time in the last four games that "Shaq" has scored 18 or more points.

Tim Duncan, F, San Antonio - Duncan is still going strong. He's averaging 25.3 ppg, up from 19.3 in 2007-08.

Andre Miller, G, Philadelphia - Since coming to Philadelphia, Miller has begun to score more while still keeping his assists at a high level. He averaged around 13 ppg in Denver, but last year built the number to 17.0 ppg. He is still averaging 5.6 apg and 3.5 rpg.
