I at least corrected the BS in here that FG% was lower before.
Once again, stop letting your hard on for me get in the way of things. I guess I'm your new obsession along with Wilt.
I brought some facts in the quote you used.
Then you promptly twisted the quote, saying it was about 90s when it was clearly talking about '70s. So I called you on it. Good enough.
But now you act like what you said was correct even when it was wrong... and then you claim to fix it!!
At least go look at the league wide stats for the two eras, like 2013 vs. 1974 (NOT 1990s or some other time frame) instead of making stuff up.
THERE WAS NO 3 POINT LINE IN 1974. SO COMPARE 2 POINTERS TO 2 POINTERS.
Q: When is league-wide .483 FG% lower than .459 FG%?
A: When plowking says it is.
When you get it wrong, you go all the way, that's for sure. But as shaqisgoat said here, and as Micku has masterfully shown in the past, comparing these kinds of things across eras is dangerous. And I need to thank you for promptly showing up and providing an example of why that is.
You can't compare across seasons team for team with those kinds of tools. But if you examine league vs. league
you see patterns emerge.
