I've uploaded a few more graphs, focusing on specific stats:
They show that some things, like FT% and defensive rebounding rates, are
largely unaffected by aging, while other stats, like turnovers and
possessions, are largely determined by a players age.
I hope my graphs are clear. I don't know too much about making them, and
used this opportunity to practise a bit. The details of each graph show the
interquartile range, between which half of all observations can be found.
