fg % has little to do with best shooter.
it depends on the style of player.
you can shoot 50% from a spot and i could shoot 45% from the same spot and it doesn't automatically mean you're the best shooter.
it could be opposing teams let you take that shot while i'm always guarded from the same spot.
if you want to look at percentages. ft % is best indicator.
the range is the same and there's no defense.
it's the best for comparing jumpshot ability.
melo is career 81% ft shooter. lebron 75%.
in fact lebron highest ft % ever in a season is 78%.
