This is only a thought as I have not checked stats to back this up but with the added depth in all teams today compared to the past the great players of yesteryear had the chance to take many more FGA on a regular basis than those of today. Now shots are shared between more players on the team. Percentages are probably similar but not the amount of shots taken.
I wonder if anyone has the time and info to check the FGA per game of say Gaze, Green and compare that to Goulding this year.
Also Boti drags out 2 players (eg Blicavs, Barnett) from a period of a quite a few years and then tries to compare them to today. He talks them up as great shooters but what were their percentages compared to for example CJ, Ingles, Mills, Newley, Goulding, Madgen, Gliddon, Matt Campbell, hell even Sav, DJ, Kickert, Andersen, Ronaldson. All of whom played in a similar period of time.
Of course Gaze was a rare case but my guess would be that many of those I have listed above , given the volume of shot attempts that the players in the past had, could have put up similar or better numbers.
He talks up Palubinskas international scoring but forgets that Mills has done similar( well in reality probably a lot more).
