Yet a lot of people fixate on FG% when they criticize players, especially in the gameday thread. Things like "F Pau man, he's 4/12, a big shooting 33%... SMH", or "Kobe is done. Shooting 43% this season. Not even top 20 in the league"
Like you, I much rather look at the TS%, it's way more useful.
Having said that, every stat, no matter how advanced, should be accompanied with actually watching the games and analysing them. That helps to better comprehend the meaning of those stats, and more so their origin.
