Youthful Destitution

Remember, like, 17 years ago when mapped the NBA? I finally got around to a sequel, focusing on age.

Sacramento, last season, was one of four teams at the midway point with an above-average team age and a below-average winning percentage. The winning percentage hasn't changed much, but the team is actually younger this year. It's likely owed to the difference between Spencer Hawes (19) and Shareef Abdur-Rahim (30), with Beno Udrih (25) for Mike Bibby (29) also helping the team get younger in real terms.

Atlanta and Charlotte have been stuck in the young-bad sector forever. That's the biggest fear going into a rebuild, isn't it? But you can't tell me you wouldn't have traded our roster for either of those last season, can you?
