Hey everyone said the same thing about Prust. Even Cally. He plays too hard, he's breaking down, his body can't handle it. Let's use other well conditioned athletes as a reference point, and not your own bodies, and your specific ages.

Now don't take that as a way of invalidating the concerns about Clowe, but consider this take for not just him but other players this season as well.

Now for those of you that watch other teams, and other sports, how many veteran players, who did not play over seas, were in good shape on Jan 19?

Of that group, how long did it take them to get into game shape?

To be fair to a lot of the voices, yes Clowe was out of shape, and yes he is slow. I ask these questions because I want to know just how much of this is a one-off and Clowe is among several veteran players that didn't get their legs until 3/4s of the season in, and how much of it is a decline?

You can change Clowe to Richards and do the same exercise, same for Boyle, Marleau in SJ, etc etc.

Knicks fans, what's the difference between an in-shape Raymond Felton and an out of shape one?
