      Oops, right you are. Still he did _reduce_ his shooting later in his
      career, after ... was it a leg injury, or the heart problem, that
      caused him to miss most of the 1993 season? Anyway, prior to that
      he jacked up FGas at a Cummings-esque 25+ per 48 minutes; after that
      he was under 18 per 48. Which is not exactly shy shooting, but I do
      remember noticing the difference in his style when he played with the
      Sonics; he was basically a role-playing backup center instead of a
      shot-happy PF.
