2011 NBA Playoff Predictions Based on Age

Hoopism predictions for the 2011 playoffs are below. We based these predictions on average team age by minutes played. May seem ridiculous but we’re willing to take on challengers (also looking for AARP sponsorship).

The average age league wide weighted by minutes was 26.59. When we look at the average age of playoff teams that number increases by about one year to 27.58. Finally, if we look at the top 6 seeded teams (3 west, 3 east) it increases by over 3 years to 29.65. That’s an increase of over two years from the average playoff age. Below we take a final look at Average Age vs Average Age Weighted by Minutes Played.
