Default NBA.com adds play-by-play data back through '96-'97

http://stats.nba.com/leaguePlayerGeneral.html

Tons of stuff to look through here. Much more in-depth numbers all the way back to the Jordan era. Here's the clutch numbers for '96-'97, for example:

Was prime Jordan in the ballpark of 50% shooting efficiency from the midrange area, as would be indicated in 1997? We know he slipped a great deal in 1998 in part due to a cracked knuckle and torn ligament on his shooting hand. I can only wonder what his mid-range shooting percentage was during his prime (notably 1991 & 1992) given that his overall FG% was much higher. Or perhaps he was that much better in the paint? He was already considered among the top midrange shooters by 1991. I believe SI called him the "best jump shooter" in the league.



Michael Jordan Mid-Range

1996-97: 48.9% FG
1997-98: 43.2% FG


Glen Rice Mid-Range

1996-97: 50.4% FG


Karl Malone Mid-Range

1997-98: 48.1% FG


Steve Nash Mid-Range

2004-05: 49.6% FG
2005-06: 45.3% FG
2006-07: 50.6% FG
2007-08: 51.8% FG
2008-09: 48.6% FG
2009-10: 48.2% FG


Kobe Bryant Mid Range

2005-06: 42.4% FG
2006-07: 43.9% FG
2007-08: 38.8% FG
2008-09: 42.0% FG
2009-10: 45.1% FG
2010-11: 41.7% FG


Kevin Durant Mid Range

2009-10: 39.7% FG
2010-11: 41.6% FG
2011-12: 46.4% FG

Person 1: "Hey, NBA.com has pbp data back to '96-97 now!"
Person 2: "Oh, yeah, I heard!"

Was basically my response.

... was what I was writing until I saw the added hidden part in the quote.

GOAT mid-range player.

But the hell is up with his finishing around the rim? 52%?

Yeah, that's awful, it's Melo-esque. Surprised me too, but there's a good chance it's an outlier year. He was at 61% in '98, which still isn't that good, but it's a lot better than '97.
