Something that may not have been made clear enough... when we say that shooting percentage regresses toward the means on the long time, it's not some random statement of belief. We're not saying "I feel it does" or "It should regress toward the means". The ACTUAL OBSERVATIONS conclusively show that it does. That's it. It's a factual statement. Take a look at the actual numbers, and it becomes very obvious, very quickly. This is not a matter of opinion; we're way past that.
Why do you feel this is "reality"? 'cause it feels like it is to you?
The world is not a math formula and just because your limited experience makes you believe it is, it still is not.
Skill, experience and motivation you will learn are what makes athletes better than one other and that makes teams better than each other.
The naivety on this thread is mind boggling.
