Last night's Lakers game call featured a chart (with commentary) on the Spurs collective age. You know, the usual "window is closing because they're long in the tooth" shtick. There must be a broadcaster Stuff Mart where this sentiment is sold as the candy of choice in the check out lanes. In honor of the gazillioneth time someone has said this since October, I wanted to re-run this post from a couple weeks ago. The championship numbers have been adjusted slightly to reflect playoff rosters.
The average age of the last five NBA Champions is 28.9.
The average age of the Spurs current roster is 29.6.
Memo to the basketball world: find yourself a new bogeyman. You're getting old.
