Default AFG% a cool stat I think is pretty cool

I found this on ESPN last year and have really come to like this stat quite a bit. It basically takes into account how the 3 pt shot impacts your shooting%, here is the def:

AFG%: Adjusted Field Goal Percentage = [(PTS - FTM)/FGA]/2
AFG% measures shooting efficiency by taking into account the total points a player produces through his field goal attempts. The intention of this adjustment is largely to evaluate the impact of three-point shooting. For example, if Shaquille O'Neal has 3-5 FG, all two-point shots for 6 points, then his AFG% = [(6/5)]/2 = .600. Meanwhile, if Ray Allen is 2-5 FG, but his 2 FGM are both three-pointers for 6 points, then his AFG% = [(6/5)]/2 = .600

here are the lakers leaders:
Bynum .636
Gasol .632
Sasha .589 (Miller leads all guards at .599)
Farmar .560

It gives a real measure of how effective a shooter a player is

never heard about it, but it takes into account the 3 point shot when all is said and done. Good data

yeah it's a good stat to seperate the wheat from the chaff so to speak.. when i hear guys say such and such has a lousy field goal percentage it's a good stat to get a quick idea...i like the break down done on 82 games, it also shows where the shots are being taken and if they are assisted or not
