      anyone looking at the Sacramento Kings this year might wonder how they could be doing so well without chris webber. brad miller has been a very nice addition, but the key has been peja stojakovic's stellar shooting/scoring. he's playing close to 40 min/g and shooting a combined scoring FG% (2pters, 3pters, and ftm) of 62.2% (overall league avg of less than 51% this season), the best of any player in the league taking at least 15 fga/g since the likes of reggie miller and detlef schrempf in the early/mid 1990s. his 53% on 2s, almost 44% on 3s, and 92% FT shooting (over 5 fta/g) has been unreal, and he has unbelievably increased his scoring FG% each year he's been in the league. he's scoring close to 25 pts/g...

      take antoine walkers shooting from last season with peja's attempts this year, and he'd be scoring less than 19 pts/g...

      been awhile since the league has seen an overall shooter this good...

        It's indeed elite company.

        Players who have averaged 25 pts, while shooting .620 (Eff%) :

        28.3 .662 Charles Barkley 1988
        30.7 .658 Adrian Dantley 1983
        25.2 .658 Charles Barkley 1990
        26.1 .653 Kevin McHale 1987
        25.8 .650 Charles Barkley 1989
        30.6 .649 Adrian Dantley 1984
        25.1 .640 Chris Mullin 1990
        28.0 .633 Adrian Dantley 1980
        27.6 .632 Charles Barkley 1991
        30.3 .629 Adrian Dantley 1982
        29.8 .626 Adrian Dantley 1986
        31.0 .623 Karl Malone 1990

        Every one of these guys turned the tricks between 1980-1991.

        Every one was a forward.


        It's rather a "trick" to deliberately place a guy into "elite
        company" by choosing a select set of stats. Most of these guys
        are "overqualified"; i.e., they are well beyond one or both of the
        standards (25.0/.620)

        And, there are many players who are well beyond one of those
        standards, but just miss the other.

        Peja has actually been doing this since the midpoint of last year, when his foot injury went away. He was at 40% two months into the year so his final numbers

          Peja has actually been doing this since the midpoint of last year,
          when his foot injury went away. He was at 40% two months into the
          year so his final numbers didn't show it, but he was en fuego.
