lol You sound older than I do. I'm inclined to agree re: the number of games, but that's just not how it's done anymore. I remember the '72 Lakers winning 69 games, having a 33 game win streak and winning the title with the fewest games any of their starters playing in being 77, the fewest number of minutes per game being 34. Wilt was 35, played in all 82 games and averaged 42.3 minutes per game. Oh, and they used to play back to back to back games fairly often back then too. But today, it's about "load management" and getting to the playoffs "rested and healthy". NOW GET OFF MY LAWN!!
