      Note: I looked at all players in a season with at least 300 FGs attempted. FG% is not the actual league FG%, but the average of all the FG%s of the players used in each year's study.

      Year FG% STDev STD% Notes
      1947 27.9 3.45 12.402
      1948 28.6 3.11 10.835
      1949 32.9 3.91 11.905
      1950 34.0 4.01 11.827 First year of the NBA; old BAA expands from 12 to 17 in merger
      1951 35.7 3.87 10.829 Down to 10 teams by year's end
      1952 36.8 4.01 10.890
