      Looks like a good formula to me. In addition to technical fouls, the
      other (more minor) complication is offensive fouls. I say more minor
      because these fouls don't affect a player's possessions, nor his free
      throws -- they represent "PFs drawn" but they are not part of "PFs drawn
      by an offensive player".

      Jeez, 30% of FTAs being due to technicals, that surely must lead the
      league, maybe even be a record. I suppose some set-shooting specialists,
      the Craig Hodges/Steve Kerr types, might conceivably be up there too, but
      they may not get enough technical FTAs to match JW.
