Nylon Calculus, Fansided’s basketball analytics site, launched some new, interactive shot charts today. These charts will show not only shooting percentages relative to league average from various spots on the floor:

DirkShots There will also be an option to show efficiency relative to all shots, so the effectiveness of  a player who shoots a below average percentage at the rim, but still gets to the rim a lot can be shown:

DanielsShots This launch along with the months and months til actual NBA action is a perfect excuse (as if we needed one) to take a look a graphical look at some of the best individual shooting seasons since 2000.
