When you're that old, dribbling takes on a whole new meaning.

Yep, their bench is old. Their starters are in their prime, however.

Not sure what you're talking about here? According to CBSSports, pretty much the entire team is 18 years old!

I love the fact that Stoudemire's knees are essentially 11 years older than everyone else.

+1 for the headline

I like the headline, but, well, let's look at the teams that have won titles recently - most of 'em had a lot of old guys who knew what they needed to do in the postseason with enough guys still in their prime to carry the main weight.

PJ Brown, thank you for that foul line extended jumper.

Wouldn't the younger guys be wearing their shorts higher? Not to the armpits, obviously, but the style of hanging your shorts low is old. Thus, the older a team, the lower the shorts. Not higher.

Someone like PJ Brown could play the "good cop" to KG's "bad cop" when Glen Davis did something bad or stupid.

Unless teams fold how does the oldest team in the league change from year to year?

It starts with reading the article.

When they send Boxer to the glue factory the average age drops a bit back on the farm.

You see, teams are made up of players. Players are people, many of whom were born on different dates in different years. Because people, as they age, move from childhood (not coordinated enough/big enough/strong enough/athletic enough to play in the NBA) to adolescence (not mature enough/strong enough/mentally capable of handling play in the NBA) to their athletic prime in adulthood (NBA players) and beyond that prime (no longer fast enough/athletic enough/healthy enough to play in the NBA), and time is constantly moving them through that cycle, people that are past their prime occasionally drop off of rosters. People who are young take their place, thereby making that team "younger."

This is all without taking into account trades and free agency, where one person of a certain age can go from one team to another and affect the average age of that team!

In this case, people that are past their prime, instead of retiring, are apparently being signed by the Knicks. And this is worthy of derision because, of course, the last two NBA champions didn't have any old vets who were past their prime for depth.

You have to think that Amare's prime probably occurred sometime during the period when he had functioning knees.

The moron who wrote the headline meant to say the Knicks have the oldest average roster of players in the NBA.

That may be so, but they have an excellent shot at the 2004 championship this year. The Spurs are getting soft...

/still a Knicks fan. why?
