Sorting teams by field goal percentage, of the top 50, the most recent is the 1996-97 Utah Jazz at #38.
So I'm curious, if there's no defense played in the NBA, why team scoring averages and shooting percentages are down.
I honestly think it's because of the one on one style of play. The NBA has gone away from ball movement and shooting and gone to slowing it down and having one guy try to get his own shot until he absolutely has to pass.
