I'm not pretending they're equal. I 'm saying I have no idea what goes on inside players heads, so why I should I pretend that I do? Why do you?
There's anecdotal evidence, sure, but there's enough variables (quality of teams, health, league rules, competition, etc) that clouds any conclusion that I don't feel comfortable with them. When we get virtual reality time machine things where I can scenarios that insert Naslund-in-his-prime into 94 Trevor's situation and vice versa, call me.
