both these guys stat pad there rebounds in a similar way that Bosh did in Toronto, steal there teammates rebounds and get into a allstar game

then you look at a guy like Dwight Howard, who instantly made the Magic better because of his rebounds

same with Joakim Noah, his rebounds translate into winning,

another thing if we made some lay ups this game would ahve been a blow out, so how does Bargs lack of rebounding effect the game, especially against rebounding machines like Griffin and Love, which in the last month our only two wins

guys like

Bosh,Griffin,Love, Zach Randolph, David Lee don't effect winning with there rebounding

meanwhile guys like

Howard, Noah, Chandler, Perkins, win with there rebounding

everyone checks the stat sheet and you can see that Griffin got 20 and 14, and your like wow domination, but then you watch the game and you barely notice the guy out there, same with Kevin Love who has great rebounding but when you watch the game you come away thinking Bargs was the best player on the floor while Love is going to a allstar game
…Or these guys (Howard, Noah, Chandler, Perkins) simply play on great “teams” and that is why they win.

Boston has been winning with Perk on the side-lines, Dallas has been a great winning team for years. Noah has been out for weeks and the Bulls are still winning.

To put it another way, Perkins plays with 4 all-stars, Chandler plays with a couple of future hall of famers, Noah plays with multiple all-stars.
To say these teams win games because of these guys’ individual rebounding is baseless.

As for Howard, his team revolves around him being the only guy at the basket. So, he better get the rebounds because no one else on his team will.
