On Monday, FOX Sports' Colin Cowherd listed five NBA players under the age of 25 that he'd bet on. The problem is more than half of the players that he listed are older than 25.
"If you told me there are five young guys - 25 or younger - that I can bet on, I'd go Giannis [Antetokounmpo], Luka [Doncic], [Joel] Embiid, [Nikola] Jokic and Jayson Tatum,"
Among Colin Cowherd's Top Five NBA Players "25 or under," you will find...
• 27-year-old Giannis Antetokounmpo
• 28-year-old Joel Embiid
• 27-year-old Nikola Jokić

">Cowherd said on The Herd.
Giannis Antetokounmpo and Nikola Jokic are currently 27 years old. Joel Embiid, meanwhile, turned 28 years old in March.
The only two players Cowherd listed that fit this age requirement are Luka Doncic and Jayson Tatum.
Several fans called out Cowherd for this mistake. Some are wondering why he didn't just simply research the players' ages before making this claim.
"Serious questions need to be asked in regards to how this dude has a job," one fan tweeted.
"I don’t know anyone that actually listens to him….I don’t get it," another fan wrote.
Cowherd will probably receive a bit more criticism for the next few days.
