This week’s passing of NY Yankees owner George Steinbrenner at age 80 caused me to think about the ages of the major players involved here in Miami.
Well, don’t worry about that too much.
The owner of the Miami Heat. Micky Arison, is now 61 years old, and the president, Pat Riley, is about 65 years old.
Since we’re at it – what about the dream team? The three were born in 1982 and 1984, that makes them 26 to 28 years old. The oldest player on the roster, by the way, appears to be 32-year old Jamaal Magloire.
The head coach, Erik Spoelstra, is with 40 years currently the 2nd youngest head coach in the NBA, only New Orleans Hornet’s Monty Williams is younger.
“This game is now about younger coaches”, Pat Riley said when Spoelstra was named head coach.
Nothing else to add.
