Of course, it's possible. The reason why there are few endpoints that return individual player stats is because I have been looking for assistance to create and maintain a non-proprietary, completely open, free database of professional athletes that includes basic information (e.g., names, birthplace, birthdate) . Every sports data service has their own strategy for keeping player IDs and I think it is a serious duplication of efforts. The other advantages are fewer typographical errors, player disambiguation, and the ability to cross reference between services if we could get others to take part.
