BBR Mailbag: Team Age, Height, and Weight

Posted by Neil Paine on January 21, 2010

Recently I received an e-mail from a user who wanted to know what the average weight of each team was, so I decided to do one better and post the minute-weighted average ages and heights for every team as well. Just click on the column headers to sort by each category:

    Utah's such a fat team, when it walks down the street, people go, "god! damn! it! look at at that fat team."

    Jerry Sloan should give Krilenko more playing time. Hehehe.

    Okur and Boozer seems really fat to me.

  4. Harry Says:

    The Mavs are really the team to which the description "old" "short" and "skinny" should be applied. The big difference here is that they win professional basketball games against professional basketball teams. Definitely a tough year to be a fanny of the Wiz, though it ain't any better for us Knickerbocker aficionados.

    I think there is a stat for nba winners based on age...
    This year the final will be dallas-boston if I remembered the age requested for winning lol
