NOTE

Jordan as a 39-40 year old logged 3,031 minutes as a Wizard his final season for a 37.1 minute per game average, playing all 82 games.

Kobe's longetivity has been amazing....but he's still 33 years old, and sits 22nd on the All-time minutes list right now, behind guys who started their careers 4 years later than he did.

So let's not pretend what he's doing is super extraordinary, cuz plenty of those guys above him were still effective in their own right at 33 years old as well.

QUALITY > QUANTITY.
