Acting like FT% is everything to determine if you're a really great shooter or if improved your shooting.
No, not "you use your fingers shooting so hurting them hurts your shooting". Evidence.
FT% is the purest indication of ones shooting. If you had a better measure show it. One that isn't affected by the quality of defense faced.
I'm not "acting like FT% is everything" I'm asking you to show that there's something better. You said "some say he was a better shooter in college" and I say I don't think there's the evidence to back up that claim. Then you assert that having an ugly looking hand prevents good free throw shooting. That's not evidence that he was a better shooter, and I've shown numbers that would seem to indicate he was worse in college. Feel free to show otherwise. But you haven't done so.
