Now that the NBA is in full swing and teams are playing games again, basketball fans across the country are able to sit back and enjoy some of the world’s greatest talented coming together on various courts across the country. However, every now and then some old faces pop up on the big screens that leave us wondering… isn’t that guy retired?

Well, the answer is no. The NBA is littered with players who should have hit the showers permanently years ago. For some reason (money, money, money), certain athletes refuse to move on to the next phase of their respective careers.

Fortunately, here at The Sports Fan Network ( TSFN), we have spent the past few weeks breaking down film and NBA rosters in search of 10 guys you probably thought were retired.

Enjoy the following TSFN slideshow.
