I know you estimate only 40% of Iverson's touches were shots in 2000
playoffs. Different year than what Stu mentioned and his was only
Finals, but I don't imagine things would be horribly different. 9%
is a lot of difference.

I've done it in the past, it's just that that online db is pretty
hard to use -- some columns aren't readable and you can't do much
analysis with because you can't save any of the data. Can't do the
averaging over a career like you did, for example. I guess looking
at seasons is simple enough.
Mike Mitchell shows up a lot as someone with high %shoot. Walt
Piatkowski? Jamaal Wilkes, Robert Parish, Wayman Tisdale, Scott
Wedman, Terry Catledge are up there.
