Average age through the years: NBA playing its young players more

There’s no specific news hook for this post, other than we were talking about it among the TrueHoop Network, and it’s interesting.

Here’s a chart of the NBA’s average age season-by-season.

Seasons are denoted by their second year. For example, the 2010-11 season is shown on the graph as 2011.

The blue line represents the average age of anyone who played that year, and the red line represents a weighted average based on playing time (data from Basketball-Reference).


It’s interesting how the gap between the weighted average age and the average age has closed.

Here’s a chart that includes the age of the oldest and youngest player each season.
