NBA Shooting By the Numbers: 1980-Today

I was over at the Best Tickets blog the other day and stumbled across this very detailed piece on NBA shooting over the past 35 years or so.  They broke down everything from 3-point shots and shooting percentage, 2-point shots and shooting percentage, true shooting percentage, so on and so forth.  Here’s a look at team 3-point shooting…

Make sure to check out the blog and read more about NBA shooting, and you’ll find the Spurs have been amongst the league’s elite since 1980.
