Mavericks Nowitzki: "We look old"

I would agree with him, especially when your starting PG is Jason Kidd. Deron will look good there next year.

Quote:
"We look old, slow and out of shape," Dallas forward Dirk Nowitzki said. "I still think this team has a lot of potential. We just need to work. We probably needed extra weeks of training camp. But we don't have it so the young teams, the athletic teams, look better right now than we do."
'We look old' Nowitzki says of 0-2 Mavs ? USATODAY.com

They were the 3rd oldest last year, and were the oldest based on minutes played.
Doubt that's changed much.
Probably 2nd oldest now, can't find the stats.

older players tend to take longer to get their wheels spinning, that and they normally tend to reserve a little energy for the playoffs.

Just get into the playoffs and then let the magic happen. They need to grind out a playoff spot.

Average age of rosters. I just calculated the ones I assumed would be kind of old.

Mavs: 30
Celtics: 28
Lakers: 28
Spurs: 27
