How do the youngest teams in the NBA compare to the oldest teams? In the 2013-2014 season, the 7 youngest teams were the Cleveland Cavaliers (33-49), Utah Jazz (25-57), Orlando Magic (23-59), New Orleans Pelicans (34-48), Milwaukee Bucks (15-67), Houston Rockets (54-28), and the Denver Nuggets(36-26). These 7 teams combined for 220 wins.
The 7 oldest teams in the NBA are the Miami Heat (54-28), Brooklyn Nets (44-38), Los Angeles Clippers (57-25), Chicago Bulls (48-34), San Antonio Spurs (62-30), New York Knicks (37-45), and the Dallas Mavericks (49-33). They combined for 351 wins.
That is a 131 win difference between the oldest and youngest teams in the NBA. I think it is fair to say that the older the team, the better. The teams that try to have young stars and win don’t do as well. Although there are teams like the Houston Rockets who are very young and can still win a ton of games because of a veteran presence of Dwight Howard. But I think this shows that you need to some experience to do well in the NBA.
