    Clearly.

    Well said.

    I see eFG% used more often / brought up in discussions these days and it's a good thing.

    Maybe things are turning around. Effective field goal percentage was mentioned 7 times in this week's power rankings on NBA.com.

    He never said it bro. It's been around since the late 80s to my knowledge, possibly the late 70s and at the very least early 2000s when Morey was still interning in Boston

    I don't have access to the original audio anymore. But you can google it and find that Morey is widely credited with creating what we now call TS% with that specific formula. Maybe what you are remembering is something different, or maybe Morey has been taking credit and being given credit for something he stole ... but it does seem unlikely.

    They've been pushing it on their site as well. NBA.com is probably the best source for checking and comparing stats. ESPN has pushed the advanced metrics deep as well. It's a bit odd as they are geared towards casuals but with the internet/social media booming, it only makes sense that they push it.
