Entire 4th quarter? How often does that happen, seriously? I understand what you're saying, but he is 22yrs old and i would say that most of his double doubles were achieved by halftime or he was very close a lot of the time by halftime. At least it has always seemed that way to me. This guy has thirteen 20+ rebound games. That's insane any way you slice it for a player that age. I agree with you that his numbers are skewed due to the team he plays on, but shit 16rpg is an amazing accomplishment for his age and i would say that on a good team he'd be right around 12rpg anyway. I just don't think most of his double doubles are due to him playing garabage time.
