(Will the formula contain brackets?)

You just contradicted yourself here. If the past 20 years are indifferent to 20 years ago, then there has been no real change to the average anything in the NBA other than height and weight, which I will agree with you that the average player is shorter and stronger.

But on top of that the current trend hasn't bottomed out yet. I've heard that career length is below four years now and it's still going lower. Players are even younger today than they were in 2008.
When you look at a two tailed t test you can see that 95% of all results will be within the range of [26.842, 27.585] and experience is [4.109, 4.789]. Therefore, there is no real statistical anomaly. Fact.

Re: No League for Old Men

I wonder how you use data for ordinary players and then make the leap to somehow superstars becoming less relevant in some hypothetical way. Most NBA players are not good enough to stick in the NBA, everyone knows this and it is not worth ten words discussing it. They come and go like cabs in front of an airport terminal. The really great players are sometimes reliant about their physical height or size and athleticism...those guys usually peak out sooner. The guys who can adjust their games as they get older prolong their careers. Everyone knows all of that and there's not a damned thing in this cracked pot theory that contradicts common knowledge. The whole thing boils down to one person's opinion, but there is no further basis to it.

I was saying that the final data points reflect the early ones. Somebody just has to look at the list and see they are within the distribution so obviously they can't be significantly different.

I'm confused. Just taking the experience list, you're contradicting yourself. You said yourself you did a t test and the mean is 4.45 and the standard deviation is 0.38. I claimed that the mean today today is below 4.00. That's a statistically significant mean, how are you saying it's not?

I have a feeling he won't post back in this thread until Kobe has a bad game.
