Do you think ages 23-27 is a bit restrictive?
Actual Points per game.
Yes, the increase in 1973 and also 1975 I can see, but not necessarily 1968. I will look more into it later. It's bedtime now.
I don't think ages 23-27 is too restrictive. But I'll look more into that too to see if there is some kind of unbalance (for example far more 23 year olds than 27 year olds).
Problem with players <23 years old is that they naturally tend to increase their scoring by pretty much from season to season, while players above 30 tends to steadily decrease.
