    The age NBA players begin to decline

    I thought this was a pretty interesting list this guy developed ranking the best players by their birth year. You can kind of see by age 33-34 NBA players hit the age wall. So, D. Wade is 30 now. He probably has 3-4 good years. I wonder if the Heat might trade him next year if the Heat can't win it this year or next.

    I'd expect to see that age start to climb up a little. Or at least see the decline be less steep, making it harder to identify the peak. Guys are just so much smarter now about how the take care of themselves. Look at a guy like Steve Nash. Yea, there's a decline, but it's not as extreme as it used to be. I fully expect this current crop of stars to decline later in their careers than their predecessors.
