One could keep track of such things as shot-clock violations
following a block, reduced shooting pct (to beat the clock) after a
recovered block, or even 'dumb' fouls trying to recover the block.
In other words, what is the offensive efficiency after an offensive

If Lakers have: 176 pts / 156 OReb
and Shaq has: 57 pts / 54 OReb
non-Shaq Lakers: 119 pts / 102 OReb
That would seem to make Shaq weaker at scoring after an OReb than his

I guess I have counted 13.5 FGA too many for Shaq, and his overall

The effect on his scoring 'rate' is significant; instead of the 29.5
I have given him, he should be at 30.7.
