        And one other comment:

        What stands out most clearly is that the average player
        (approximately a small forward in stature) has gained ten+
        pounds of what is likely muscle mass.

        And an implicit question:

        Boy it sure would be nice to get the distribution of age data so
        that some coherent stories could be told.
