We recently discussed Kevin Durant's epic success at the free-throw line and how that was part of the reason why he was leading the Association in scoring despite ranking just sixth in field-goal attempts. Currently, Durant is averaging 18.0 FGA and 28.9 points per game this season. According to ESPN Stats and Information, Charles Barkley (1987-88) is the only player in NBA history to average at least 28 points while attempting 18.0 or fewer shots per game.
