NBA History: Worthy to Faried

Through three NBA season Denver Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried has posted a 56% effective field goal rate.  The former late first round draft pick has averaged double-digit points while shooting over 55% eFG each of his pro-seasons.

How many guys in NBA history can boast 10 points/game and 55% eFG each of their first three years?  Only four.

Faried, Shaquille O’Neal, Jeff Ruland and James Worthy.

Some very interesting comps to the “Manimal” in there.  Could he peak as a Big Game James type star?
