This is mind blowing;
The 1981-82 Lakers Made only 13 3's the entire season,
They took the fewest attempts with a mere 94,
They shot a league low % with .138%
They were the worst free throw shooting team in the league
3rd fewest FT attempts???
Yet they were 2nd in the league in scoring
I guess I should mention the won the NBA Championship that season
Not to mention they were 12-2 in the post season.
huh, maybe thats the main reason why Kobe's FG% is really low compared to these great players
Kobe has a career FG% of 45%
MJ just under 50%, would have been higher if he didn't come back from retirement shooting 42 and 45% at Washington.
Magic shot 52% in his career, Bird shot 49.6%
Heck Lebron James is shooting 49% while Wade is shooting 48.6%
in Kobe's last 8 games he has shot under 43% 6 times, 5 of 8 games he shot under 41%.
