Olympic Icon Dara Torres who is considered one of the greatest female competitive swimmers of all-time. She entered her first international swimming competition at age 14 and competed in her first Olympic Games a few years later in 1984. At the 2008 Summer Games in Beijing, Dara became the oldest swimmer ever to compete in the Olympic Games at age 41. She took home 3 Silver Medals, including the heartbreaking 50-meter freestyle race where she missed another Gold Medal by a mere 1/100th of a second. America has fallen in love with Dara for her astonishing accomplishments and her composure in the face of defeat.
Co-host Dr. Brian Cole discussing theories on how The NBA May Be Pushing its Tallest Players to the Point of Injury.
Once upon a time, players were assigned roles and positions based on their heights. Shorter people were supposed to shoot, pass, and dribble while those more vertically gifted were expected to lumber around the basket. This was all basketball 101.
Somewhere in recent years though, unicorns emerged and the dogma was upended. Since the advent of the NBA, the average height of players has increased from 6’3” to what it is today: 6’7”. As height as increased, the league’s skill and athleticism has also ballooned.
And so, tall players (power forwards and centers) are no longer gangly giants dependent entirely on their inches to make an impact. Now, they’re expected to be sublime and omnipotent too. But while they’re tasked to bring their A-game to the court for every game, the anatomical confines of their knees may really not be about that life.
