Default Re: What would Larry Bird and Magic average in this Era?

You think guys like AI who shot 25 times in a slow league in the early 2000s would take 30-32 shots a night in the 80s west?
My point is exactly that. Iverson was considered a chucker. Bird wasnt. Iverson taking 25 shots in the early 00s was equivalent to taking probably 28 in the 80s. And mind you that was Birds max.

If Bird took roughly 20 shots in a league that avg about 7100 shots per team, how is he gonna get the same 20 in a league where the avg team takes about 6500?
