As in, league-wide FG%, PPG and RPG for SF's for example

Do those exist anywhere online? I can't seem to find them

At hoopdata, you can search/sort by position. Some of their position designations are iffy, but that's not really their fault as much as it is the reality of basketball where guys slide between positions based on matchups, injuries, coach preference, team need, etc. Coaches have this weird thing they do where they worry more about trying to win games than about keeping guys at the same position to make analysis easier. :D
