Imagine an basketball player X. In a basketball game, he made a single throw. At the end his precision percentile was 50%, but he made a single throw. Did he actually scored a point, or did he missed the basket.

He missed the throw.... But you forgot to mention that he dunked a basket too and got it in! That's how he can have a 50% percentile with only one throw (a dunk is not a throw).

Its a good question. If he has 50% he probobly missed, beacuse if you score in a single throw you have 100%. What about free throw? What do you think?
