But why didnt he avg 30 against the league at 38 years old? Context has to be implemented in this discussion.

Why do you think that is so? I think its because Pat Riley knew he it was too hard for him to do that game in and game out. So when he played against a up and coming center he used it as a way to challenge him. What context do you see it in?

I think the "bridge theory" can be explained in one word. RIVALRY. Because the flip side is those great games the older players had vs the younger incumbent didnt happen on a nightly basis vs the avg centers. Not to mention the fact that the younger players were inexperienced. Basically neither of the players mentioned were in their prime. How did Jabaar fair vs the rest of the league?

The "bridge theory" is obviously summed up better by looking at the overall stats of the season. Knowing how in any given era there's a good number of veterans who have performed well throughout the season against the newer generation of players and that most veterans who didn't manage to perform as well had reasons other than their overall level of play (injuries, losing athleticism more rapidly, fatigue due to age), these are good indications of the correctness of the theory. It's the closest one can get to the popular but completely utopic "time travel" argument - Kareem barely missing Bill Russell and barely missing David Robinson, Parish facing Cowens and Shaq, Jordan facing Gervin and Kobe...

Olajuwon was not anywhere close to his prime in terms of defensive skillset, he was foul prone and he also was easy to get up to the air.

And the who "bridge"-nonsense is utter garbage, if this nonsense makes sense, then Moses has a strong case for being the GOAT-center of all-time, especially if you like to cherry pick like Jlauber.
