As far as proving that AS's pulls everyone to the average, that's easy in principal, hard in the data you need.

Overpass did a measurement of scoring by tier in the 80's.
You would need his info and list of players broken down by tier from a year in the 80's.
Keep the tier groupings the same but run all players through Adjusted Stats. Then recalculate what % each tier contributed to league scoring.
See what happens.
If the %'s change, if the top 2 tiers drop in % while the bottom 2 tiers increase in %, you have your answer.
