Oh, I never said it doesn't. I said it's overused as a measuring stick for selective great players, instead of a contextual facet of assessment of their game.

For instance, saying Duncan wasn't all that great of a player because he only shot 50% as a big for his career would be an erroneous way to perceive what Duncan brought to the table on offense.
