Ed Davis: 6.5 PPG, 6.2 RPG, 1.16 BPG, 58% FG% in 21.6 MPG on the 13-36 Raptors.
Greg Monroe: 6.8 PPG, 6.3 RPG, 0.41 BPG, 51% FG% in 23.7 MPG (6.2 P, 5.7 R, 0.38 B per 21.6 minutes) on the 17-31 Pistons.

Similar points and rebounds numbers, significantly more blocks and higher FG% in slightly fewer minutes, on a team en route to 22 wins versus a team en route to 29 wins. Points and rebounds are things that are easily come by on a bad team (especially with a lower FG%, Greg), but blocks are not.

An argument can easily be made...
