Basic question...a win share equals 1/3 of a teams wins. So if a player has a win share of 30, he had a direct impact on 10 of his teams wins. Is that correct?

Also, how many win shares is considered a good amount?

Thanks.

How does one measure to find out how many win shares a player gets in a given year?
