Missed shots is related to the total number of possessions HOW? Directly or inversely?
What were debating relating to Oscar Robertson? POSSESSIONS or missed shots?
Are you a freaking retard?
I am taking the directly proportional stat we are DISCUSSING related to rebounds and drawing the RELATED conclusion.
Let me show you how dumb you are. This whole discussion started with a WHAT IF POSSESSIONS increased to 115. Then you discussed missed shots which convolutes the discussion at hand.
WHAT IF teams shot as well as they did in the 80's with the NBA as a whole averaging over 50%? Less rebounds occur.
BUT if we stick to possessions and assume the CURRENT shooting percentage then the total number of possessions being increased compared to today would yield a more accurate comparison between 115 and 93 when it comes to the rebounding rate PER POSSESSION.
Listen, this will be the last time I reply to one of your posts because I fear a potential Flowers For Algernon effect. You're literally that fricking dumb.
1. We are debating whether Lebron would have averaged a triple double in 1961 and 1962 when stats were inflated.
2. To that end, I have run numbers in a sensible, logical -- read: correct -- and easy to follow manner. Everybody understands the conclusion that I have arrived at because my steps are clear.
3. Why in the world would you -- or anyone else performing a rebounding calculation -- ever ever ever choose to use # of possessions instead of missed shots?
4. Of course they're correlated. Congratulations, you're math is completely incorrect but does bear some semblance of correlation to the correct math that I posted two pages back.
5. Rebounding Rate == (100 * Total Rebounds * (Team Minutes / 5)) / (Minutes Played * (Team Total Rebounds + Opponent Team Total Rebounds))
Formula give here: LINK
6. The above formula is official and certifiable
7. Just like your mental retardation
8. I will not respond to another of your posts. You are much too stupid to debate with, and in fact are too stupid to even insult.
9. Good day then.
10. One more thing: just look at my numbers, dude. They're right.
