I don't think this is a good article - to me it sounds like someone trying to find arguments for preconceived opinion. The reality is that whatever ranking criteria, good teams will tend to rank high, and bad teams will rank low and it's rare that an elite team is good at everything.

For example:
top 10 rebounding includes boston, lakers, houston, Dallas, Cleveland, but also Indiana, NY and Oklahoma. In the bottom ten you have miami, NO, Atlanta which are average to good teams.

top 10 FG% includes boston, lakers, orlando, denver, SAS, Dallas, Cleveland,but also GSW and Phoenix

and the same situation in other rankings. I would argue that rebounding seem so important for some fans because they suffer from the green grass syndrome.
