Is basketball a young man's game as opposed to a man's game?


I made a discovery today - at least ONE Danish cable channel (a non-descript one, unfortunately) does cover the NBA play-off games! Hurray!

There I was revelling in the discovery, that besides live-coverage and analysis, they also send a replay the next day. There's a but coming, right? Well, after following the Knicks games live-streamed, I found the whole experience underwhelming.

Okay it was not as bad as watching TNT - where they keep on ex-Shaq-ting torture with their stunts. The Danish analysts and commentators are knowledgeable in their analyses and comments - BUT when I've had the pleasure of Mike Breen, Hubie Brown, Clyde and JVG - these Danes PALE in comparison. So, no. I will still have all-nighters with the Knicks. I will consider watching the replays of less-important games, though. If I can get past the odd mix of Danish-English terms they keep on slaughtering.

So, where was I? My question! The whole reason I made this post. The program also included an interview of an NBA veteran who is asked to share his thoughts on, among others, how he he thinks the league has developed since "his days".

Steve Kerr said something about the tremendous talent playing in the NBA right now. He also said, that because many of these young players come from their first year of college, they have not developed knowledge for the game. To quote: "It is (currently) young men's basketball, not a man's game."

The Danish reporter, who in my opinion (and based on past journalistic experience) SHOULD have asked him more about this statement, but, alas.

So what do you think?
