A look at scoring productivity for several "Player of the Century" candidates

This is going to be quick hit, basically just an excuse to put up a cool plot. A while back I developed a relatively simple metric for measuring scoring productivity that combines usage (i.e. volume) and shooting efficiency. I also did some work on aging curves using that metric. Motivated by Dime Mag's naming Kobe Bryant the "Player of the Century" (or, at least, the first 0.12 parts thereof), I thought I'd re-visit my scoring metric, and post aging curves for several of Kobe's potential rivals for that honor. Enjoy, debate, stare blankly, whatever! (Keep in mind this doesn't account for defense or any aspects of offense aside from scoring.)
