Earlier this year
I just had a stupid idea
(Not the first. Won't be the last.)
What would happen in a hypothetical league where points scored were multiplied by the age of the player scoring them? What might a typical scoreline be? 4-6,000ish each? Where would the balance fall between experience and shooting ability versus fading athleticism?
If it were restricted to people living in Australia (ex-NBL generally), which players would probably dominate?
Would you keep a gun 80-year-old shooter on the bench for late-game buckets? Or a relatively sprightly 40 year old who could terrorise on D and get breakaway layups?
I'm imagining a scenario where the league is full of 50-70 year old ex-NBL players, but the commentators are instead 15 year old pre-ABL punks laughing at the failed dunks and knee braces.
