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


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

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


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.

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