I suggest you to look at any type of linear adjustment distribution next to per game distribution. You must have more numbers than me currently, you should be able to do that easily. Say 15+ ppg on 100 constant pace and direct 15+ ppg players are your sample and put the distributions, doesn't matter if per 100 poss or what you do for this now, next to each other with the names and say that linear adjustment isn't failing at least by one third of the time and not throwing off reliability considerably.
Also, I played your game more than you played mine. Let's change it for a moment.
You think you're playing my game? No, I didn't even say "McHale's ppg is higher ez". You took a part of my post that had stats and none of the things why I mentioned those stats.
This is an interesting comparison because even though Gasol had a clear advantage in prime duration and overall longevity, McHale had the edge on postseason longevity. Usually, regular season and postseason longevities go hand in hand. But not in this one.
And you still haven't given me a reason why you left out 1988. Let's say I put it in and it doesn't change much? That's a poor way to argue. While I'm asking you for reasons, you just gave me bunch of numbers those had nothing to do with what I was arguing about.
You didn't give me a single reason why you left out 1988.
1988 was the natural poster boy for wrong arbitrary cut off points. It was right up there with 1986-87 as McHale's single season peak and you just cut it off. I'm, again, all ears to know why 1988 wasn't peak McHale and as an addition, I'm also all ears about why 2005 and 2006 for Gasol make it in but not 1989 and 1990 for McHale.
Edit; I think you've posted enough with great quality, you've always been interested in talking about the topic at hand contextually, but this time around you wanted to talk about what you wanted to see and didn't look like you cared about why I used those numbers. So, yes, that's an ever from you for me. You might disagree but I think there's no need to take it further away than this.
