Despite reaching 40 earlier in the season, Newcastle Eagles veteran Charles Smith feels fit and ready to play in Sunday's BBL Trophy final against Leicester.
Smith has been an important member of the Eagles squad since making his debut in 2000-01, and was in the side that beat the Riders in January's BBL Cup final.
He told BBC Look North there is still plenty of basketball in him, despite his longevity in the game.
