    Agree regarding the .539 shooting % (good for 5th all time) but that 21.9 PPG didn't make the top 25 thus excluding him from the list which was based on PPG avg for career.

    Durant didn't make the list based on number of games played I would guess as this is just his 4th year and his stats are only based on 294 games.

    MEMO: C. Anthony was good for 24.7 ppg (#14) and .457 shooting % (#17).

    I'd like to see the PPG adjusted for the 3-pointer, 1/2 the list never had a 3 to shoot

    You'd have to look at PPG by position if you want to exclude Centers, etc. Here's the 3PFGP listing:

    and Dean Oliver's stats based on win shares is another viable method though I couldn't find any top ten players by career "WINS" ...

    Posted by Mployee8[/QUOTE]jordan was at 31.5 and 51.6% for his bulls career. washington dropped his averages! kobe is already dropping! he will end up as the all-time scoring leader (11k removed) but the other stuff will drop as he ages. greatest numbers for jordan: 56% on game-winning FGs, had 25.. both are all-time records! pierce is in the top 5 for the latter. kobe only shoots 30%.. would like a full list of players for both those stats...

    You're gonna like this ... Love for Ray Allen and Paul Pierce but Kobe fans won't for sure:

    http://www.82games.com/gamewinningshots.htm

    Kobe fans don't like to hear it, but while their man is #4 in the league in total game winners hit, he holds the top spot in a less glamorous category: most game winning opportunity missed shots!

    42 - Kobe
    35 - Vince Carter
    33 - Joe Johnson, LeBron
    32 - Crawford
    31 - Billups

    Now we're not Kobe haters by any means and I will readily give him his due as one of the best NBA players (note however, I didn't say the best) but he certainly has an overblown reputation when it comes to the clutch shot: people remember the ones he hits, but not the ones he misses, and heck you think a 56 FGA to 1 assist ratio might be part of the problem?

    Editorial Comment: What happened to that rep as "Big Shot" Billups?

    Comment: Looks like Wade s/b taking the clutch shot, eh?
