If all you want are better results -- "better" is a personal
decision, so you can try it and see whether the results
are "better". Whether you also account for some teams rebounding
only 20% of their misses and other teams rebounding close to 40% is a
question. And if you modify the weight on missed FGA, should you
also modify the weight on offensive rebounds?
