Okay? Those are all speculative in nature. While I appreciate the hot take, you really can't back any of this up.
It's a hot take and speculative to say that players improve as they approach 23 and get worse as they approach 33? Go back and look at NBA history. We can use the guy in your avatar, Reggie Miller, as an example:
Miller at 22: 14 PER, 0.6 BPM
Miller at 23: 15.7 PER, 2.3 BPM
Miller at 32: 19.8 PER, 4.3 BPM
Miller at 33: 18.7 PER, 3.5 BPM
I can provide more examples if you like. The point is players who don't improve when they're 23 and don't decline when they're 33 are the exception to the rule.
EDIT: noticed your avatar is photoshopped and that's not Reggie Miller's face. The point still stands.
