like my equation in the shaq vs anderson total shots. i took total free throws per game and devided by 2. then added to total fga's

in 2001

kobe 8.2 divided by 2 = 4.1

22.2 + 4.1 = 26.3

shaq 13.1 divided by 2 = 6.5

19.2 + 6.5 = 25.7

---------------------------------

in 2002

kobe 7.4 divided by 2 = 3.7

20 + 3.7 = 23.7

shaq 10.7 divided by 2 = 5.3

18.3 + 5.3 = 23.6


That doesn't take into account 3-point plays, which Shaq got a lot of.

So you're half-changing him a lot of attempts when you divide by 2.
