Anything for his god Kevin Durant.

it's not a hard thing to calculate. all you need is their total points scored and their field goals attempted.

but don't follow what he told you, he just wanted to make it sound complicated. literally all you need to do is this:

total field goals attempted divided by total points gives you shots per point. multiply that by 30000. there ya go.

you can also reverse it and go with total points divided by field goals attempted to get points per shot. then divide that number into 30000

DUMB THREAD

because historically S Guards have better FG% than Centers and pf. hes not too far from mj in fga and mj was a beast. just being in that group is an honor.

Kobe is a 6'6 SG and you're comparing his fg attempts to three bigmen (two being 7foot GOAT centers) and the GOAT himself.

I find this to be very flawed because you don't factor in 3pointers, which are included into FGA, and free-throw attempts, which don't count as a FGA. I mean, for example, Lebron is currently shooting a career low free-throws, so if this trend continues he'll have to take more FGA to compensate for the lack of free-throws points.

Edit: I wasn't asking because I don't know how to calculate, but rather because a simple calculation won't do.

Nope. I took out their poor efficiency/scoring numbers from early on in their career's. The players they are today will effect how soon they reach 30k, not the players they were when they were rookies.

For instance: Over the past 5 years, LeBron has had an average TS% of 59.2. For his career, he's at 56.8%. This season he's at 58.7%.

The greatest trick Kobe ever pulled was making his longevity look easy. The large majority of players dont stay this good this long.

PS- His Michael Jordan number is false. It took MJ 22,956 shots to get to 30,000. That's only 107 less than Kobe.

Oh, hilarious. Because when I did my calculations I got the EXACT same numbers as you on LeBron and Durant. So quit talking out of your ass.

Nope. Because, statistically, they may never be this efficient again.



For example, stupid, Michael Jordan. The year the Bulls won their second title he had his lowest PPG average in 6 years. And he took .3 more shots per game than the year before, while scoring 1.4PPG less. Between 88/89 and 89/90, his shots per game jumped higher than his PPG (1.8 to 1.1). His career high in points to shot was 88/89, followed by 87/88 AND his rookie season, just behind. Well, his efficiency technically got worse.


So, it seems like your argument is full of shit. But please, go ahead and tell me how I'm wrong.
