Please explain. I don't see any draw backs of using TS% (beyond the fact that we as fans would have to do some math if we wanted to know someones TS% for a game or season and it wasn't listed at the source we are looking at).

It IS a better stat than field goal percentage. That's not an opinion. It is a greater encompassing stat than field goal percentage and it is better.

Let's see. There is a multiplier. 0.44. To adjust free throws. The people which defends that BS said to me it's an adjustment for and-ones and technical free throws.

Wouldn't that 0.44 multiplier be changed in every season? Even after every week? Care to explain?

There should be a multiplier which is particular to every single season.

If you change it to .50 it's a marginal difference anyway

Well field goal percentage doesn't take that variance into consideration either...it just doesn't even look at the free throws, which is obviously worse than the difference between .44 and .47 or whatever you think it should be.

Its easily the most overrated stat in the NBA, I don't know if TS is any better, the reailty is how much impact a player has on a game is far greater than any stat.
