With Tracy McGrady on the shelf, Ron Artest has helped lead the Rockets to the second round of the postseason.
Artest has averaged 16.4 points during the playoffs, including 21 points against Los Angeles in Houston's Game 1 win at the Staples Center.
He'll be a free agent this summer, and wants people to know that he can still play.
"There's guys younger than me that can't play defense like me," Artest told the Toronto Sun.
"So I guess I feel 19. I know I feel young. But I seem old. People make me look old.
"They always talk about the 2010 class. To all these young guys: 'Hold on, I'm still here. Can I get another contract please?' Am I that old?"
