lies, damned lies, and sabermetrics

But is Kevin Martin REALLY effective AT scoring?

"[Here’s] a complete review of the Effective Scoring (Pts-FGAs-.5FTAs) averages of all NBA players who have played at least 200 minutes… 

Surprisingly, the player who is the most effective scorer in the NBA this season is SG Kevin Martin of the Houston Rockets.  He has been exceptional at turning attempts into points, mostly because he gets to the foul line and converts, and because he shoots a high rate of threes and has a high 3pt FGA.  The next most proficient scorer is Dirk Nowitzki.”
