There's more players being drafted, coming in for a couple years, and not making it in the big leagues. That isn't indicative of players deteriorating sooner. There are a lot more players these days drafted for their athletic potential that don't pan out in the NBA.

I'm surprised you keep coming back to this thread.

That was a hectic point in my life. Maybe the two years I remember him being at Wake went by so long it just seemed like it was two years.

Re: No League for Old Men

So this is a long thread about an imaginary trend?

Do you work in Canadian numbers as well? I posted a link that shows the league is getting younger, smaller, lighter, and careers are lasting shorter and it's a downward trend whereas there was a 15 year upward trend before that.

No. You actually didn't. The fact you fail to understand that is hilarious.

You called me out saying "Don't you understand numbers, the league is the youngest its been in 20 years!", when in reality, the link you posted shows the previous 2 years were younger, not to mention numerous years from the 80's. Also, the fact that there is a variance of less than 2 years up and down throughout the 20 years.

Now all the sudden you're throwing in height and weight like it has something to do with your original age discussion (it doesn't).

We should start a count of the threads you make or try to take over, have everyone tell you you're wrong, and you still argue and try to act like you know what you're talking about.

Let me guess:

Re: No League for Old Men

I finally read the first post. Wow.

That is some of utter garbage right there.

"Sorry, but I can just draft Norris Cole."

You have to look at percent change you redneck. You work with numbers and don't even know that?

Of course you just did. You're such a valuable, contributing member of this forum. So knowledgeable too. And great with numbers.

You do realize that the column "EXP" is the one that denotes average career length, right? After a seven year period average career length dropped 16%. Today it's down 25% from 1999-2000.

The average age (the column you posted) dropping a full year in an 8 year period in a sport with an age rule and a very set age range that it can be physically played is a pretty significant change.

It went up appoximately 1 year to the mid 90's and then back down 1 year to the late 00's. You do understand that's called a trend correct?

You also understand that the "EXP" that you're talking about represents average league experience, and not average career length, correct?

No?

No shit it's a trend. I said it myself that the league was on an upward trend in age, experience, and size and peaked in '99 and since then it has been on a downward trend to now where it's the lowest it has been since the '80's. The league is getting shorter, lighter, and younger. That's my whole point.

You should reread your posts and figure out what your point actually was. It's not really a point if you change it every time I post something to make you look stupid.


You know, it really seems like my Redneck Canadian ass is doing a better job understanding the numbers you posted, now doesn't it?
