    Yes. Agreed again.

    BTW, here is another reason stats are dangerous to interpret. Let's say Player A is playing for a bad team. You and I both know that good teams try harder against their rivals versus a bad team. Sometimes a coach may rest a player against a team they know they might beat. So, Player A has a pretty easy route to good stats.

    Now, Player B is much better but he's playing for a good team. Other teams are "up" for that competition and try much harder to win. Player B, although much better than Player A, has to contend with tighter defense...and therefore his shooting stats suffer.

    On paper, Player A looks better in all respects. I suppose his team's record is an indication. But even then, we are talking black magic trying to figure out who the better shooter is, simply based on statistics. IOW, good luck and it ain't happening.
    which is why no one is saying to base things only off statistics...
