Default More on the Rebounding Issue

from hollinger's team previews:
Oddly enough, the Magic were a terrible offensive rebounding team. With four shooters spacing the perimeter and Howard normally lined up on the strong side, Orlando rarely had players in position to gather second shots. The Magic's 24 percent offensive rebound rate ranked 28th -- only Toronto and San Antonio fared worse
what do the spurs, the magic and us have in common? A dominant PF/C surrounded by 3 or 4 3pt shooters. Thus, despite each team having one of the best rebounders in basketball (howard, bosh, duncan), they ranked bottom 3 in offensive rebounding.
