Ages of NBA Players as of 12/10/02

These are the ages as of 12/10/02 for all the NBA players in the league as of 12/10/01. I will add some of the rookies from time to time. Give me birthdays for any you want included (missing birthdates for Woods and Stoudamire). Basic data came from

http://www.dfw.net/~patricia/

(I challenged myself to figure out a way to do this without having to input all of the data and I was up to the challenge. I hope this is useful.)

Rookies and Bulls are bolded, and the 27 players to get MVP votes or be All-NBA (1st, 2nd, or 3rd teams) in the last two years are underlined.

For extra interest, I put together a starting team and three bench players for each year, group 19-20 and 38-40. I then ranked the teams by how good they would be in 2002-2003.

If you ever wanted to understand why the NBA had trouble after Michael left, just look at how weak the players aged 31-36 are, especially those 31-33.

There were no players in that three-year age group who either received an MVP vote or made one of the top 3 All-NBA teams in the past two years. Amazing!

Even as a shell of his former self, Alonzo Mourning might presently be the best player in that group. Amazing!

I suspect that you could put together a team of 22 year-olds or 39+ year-olds that would challenge the 31-33 year-old All-Star team. Amazing!

I agree 100%. For a period of time after Jordan left, the best players in the game were still the old farts from the mid 80's. Malone won an MVP at what, age 35 or 36? It just took a few years for the next wave of talented players to assume the throne. I guess that talent has always run in cycles though, with the inevitable dry spells.
