I am trying to find the most combined shots per game by two team mates in a single season since 1980.

Play index can't seem to isolate this for me, so I am looking for help.

Westbrook/Durant haven't topped 38 per game

Kobe/Shaq never really topped 41

Jordan/Pippen never really topped 40

Any ideas?

Also, only three times has an individual averaged over 27 shots per game since the early 80's, Kobe, Iverson, and Jordan each did it once.

And none of those seasons, did it appear that the individual took more than 33% of his teams total shots.

Has anyone since the early 80's taken more than 30% of their teams total shots outside of these three examples?

Wilt chamberlain and whoever his next highest scoring teammate was..

Edit: sorry didn't see where you said since 1980

I can't seem to see them having a season over 42 at most (haven't looked at each individual year yet).

Yeah, Kobe and Shaq combined for 41+ twice, but never 42

I think you nailed it with Jordan/Pippen. The next best I could find were English/Vandeweghe @ 41.5 in '84.

i cant believe PP and walker put up that many shots. I feel like Paul was near top of the league in foul shots every year in that era as well

Kobe had 20+ FGA every season since 2000 other that one year in 2004. That is nuts!

I think it would have been cool if they got Boston to the finals in 2002. they were only two games away from meeting the Lakers. Jason Kidd got in the way.

Was gonna suggest them and you did it. Lol. It's such a shame that they achieved close to nothing. And Anthony, about to slowly decline from his prime, is still with a team that sees no imminent success.

if taking many shots was fodder for criticism, Odom certainly got screwed big time by Kobe. Odom was never a ballhog yet you mentioned him alongside with Kobe. Unfair.

Lamar was an inconsistent scorer. he could never be counted on to pull the weight that a legitimate #2 has to pull. thats why he didn't fully thrive until he became the third option. he wasn't a good shooter, and more importantly he didn't have a scorers mentality. he had a passive offensive mind-set, and thats why he never developed into an all-star despite his physical gifts and vision for the game.

Lamar was a facilitator, not a scorer.

Michael Jordan averaged 23.8 shots per game over an eleven year period from 1987-1998.
