5 NBA Teams in Dire Need of a Youth Infusion
USA TODAY Sports

Experience is key to any NBA team's success, but it should not become its mantra.

Just ask the Los Angeles Lakers. They are a talented team on paper, but each of their key players minus center Dwight Howard is over the age of 30.

Likewise, the New York Knicks' collective age has been an issue all season. While the team has performed excellently, some of the older guys have gotten banged up.

The point of all this is that as good as experienced teams are, it wouldn't hurt them to have a small group of young players. Youth injects life into the lineup, and allows coaches to create a fast-paced game that other elite teams may have a problem slowing down.

As a result, the older dogs get a rest and are fresher in crunch time. If just a few teams took to this approach, the positive results could come as a surprise to team management.
