old age and treachery will overcome youth and skill.

The average age of that lineup is 34-35 years old. Madness.

Can't wait to see them in the PO's. The fact that everyone's disrespected them this year will fuel another big run.

Really makes you wonder why some people start to freak once a guy turns 30.

jason kidd's shit talking is so beautiful. i remember this dude did a triple threat on him and kidd leaned on him and whispered something in his ear and the dude was just chucking shots for the rest of the game. (long time ago)

Lol, so many examples of players getting better when they're older

Not about getting better.... it's about not falling off as much as people think you're going to.

my simple math might be off, but that line-up plays together for an average of three minutes a game. stats are stupid. the best defensive line-up is the one that protects the lead in the fourth quarter and they normally play at least four minutes together as a unit!

It's definitely a valid point.

Probably a little more due to the injuries that they've suffered this year.

Still, very true.
