    Default Johnson Came Within 35 FGA Of Winning the FG% Title in 09-10

    Now I realize that this is not the biggest or even one of the bigger things to lead the league in and guys like Miki Moore have lead in FG%. However, it would have been nice nonetheless.

    Maybe in 2010-11

    FG Pct (369 attempts)
    -----------------------------------
    Player Team Pct
    -----------------------------------------
    howard------.612
    perkins-------.603
    hilario--------.587
    gasol, m.-----.581
    varejao-------.572
    bynum---------.570
    smith----------.569
    o'neal----------.566
    haywood------.562
    boozer---------.562

    Johnson----FGA 334----FG% .623

    I realize that if he had taken 35 more FGA that his FG% could have gone down. However, based upon his splits for 09-10 if he taken those additional 34 FGA post all-star there is a good chance he would have won the FG% title.

    pre all-star - FGA per game 3.4------- FG% .592
    post all-star - FGA per game 5.3-------FG% -.656

    So one of the things that the Raptors need to do in 2010-11 to get better, assuming Johnson stays, is to feed the "Big Dawg" more!

    It's certainly something for him to put on his resume when he goes searching for a job this summer.

    How is FG% a ridiculous stat?

    Anyway, it's no secret that Amir is a very efficient garbage man. It's just a shame a much less productive Bargnani was gifted many of the minutes Amir rightfully earned. To think Amir's biggest strengths were the team's biggest weaknesses, yet he still couldn't crack the 20min mark. Such an obvious rotation adjustment, I don't understand how it wasn't made.

    BUDDAHFAN WROTE: So one of the things that the Raptors need to do in 2010-11 to get better, assuming Johnson stays, is to feed the "Big Dawg" more!



    very true buddahfan but remember a big part of johnsons sucess besides more minutes was that calderone kept setting him up considering they had very nice chemistrty together..... now if jose ends up on the trading block, amir might have a bit more trouble getting such eassy looks without jose
