Thanks pilight ...

As far as athletes go, the evidence in all sports is pretty clear: Don't trust anyone over 27.


Which is below the average age of the two best teams in the league.


Stars peak at an average of age 27 like anyone, but they are often better than most players even after their peak. Nobody with any sense would suggest Carolyn Swords is better than Sylvia Fowles just because Swords is 27 and Fowles is 31.

To expand on my misleading post ... in terms of trading for talent, or relying on talent, expecting improvement after age 27 is less likely to be justified than expecting improvement before age 27.
