My MRI shows mild patellar chondrites/chondromalacia with partial thickness cartilage ulceration. I am 73 & play sports?

In brief: Early arthritis

The findings suggest early arthritis of the patellofemoral joint, which at 73 years old is pretty good.
You would do well to stay active as you have, potentially avoiding activities that clearly aggravate it.
