Re: Shot Types & Defensive Ability
Before this past season, sportsline.com printed play-by-play reports
that listed the distance of every FGA. This season's reports only
list the shot type.
Harvey Pollack's annual NBA Statistical Yearbooks list FGM at each
distance for every player and may be obtained from the Sixers for $10.
The best way to estimate opponent's stats is to get each opponent's
line scores versus each opponent. These breakdowns are available at
various sites... NBA.com, each team's site, sportsline, espn.com,
