Who is the youngest team in the west?

Hi guys,

I am from Golden State of Mind.  In the Bay Area press and all over the Warriors blog, we are refered to as the youngest team in the NBA, which we are by definition at 24.1 years.  But I decided to weight age against playing time instead of just taking a raw average age.  I compared the Warriors to the Portland Trail Blazers, Memphis Grizzlies, MinnesotaTimber Wolves, and The OKC Thunder.

Here are the results
