You didn't even watch the game!!!!!! Typical RF response to just look at boxscore. By your logic, Reggie should average 50 Rebounds a game cause he goes after every ball.
Secondly, AB draws all the criticism which is directed in the form of hate. This team got lit up inside and out on the perimeter. All these love threads for players are ridiculous cause this team is full of soft players. Some of you complain about Colangelo and his euro/offensive bias but then herald players like DD, Weems and Bayless for their scoring potential. Very few times do I ever see guys getting physical on defence on this team. DD goes through many games looking to avoid picking up fouls and ending up with 1 or 2 while his man is just going off. Sure he gets his buckets, but he's just as turrible on D. He's only one of the terrible defenders of course. AB is one too, but so are about 10 of 12 guys getting run. It's disgusting. Yet everyone bitches about AB. Watch the game, and take a look at what those other guys aren't doing!
