1. You can think it's not true if you want, but it is
2. Using save percentage ON (relative to team) is not a good idea because it's heavily driven by noise in the short run and will regress towards the mean in the long run. Fancy way to say it's mostly luck. Same with shooting percentage. The study done is performed to illustrate who had the better year - regardless of reasons (luck perhaps) - in terms of net positive production, not to determine who is the better overall player in the long-run.
As such, you don't need to account for sv percent on, or shooting percent on.
