Bargnani in his sixth season is averaging 6.4rpg. Nowiztki averaged that in his second season and for his career is averaging 8.3 or his career. This notion that Dirk has struggled rebounding in his career is way overblown. I will say that his D is probably gotten to a point that it's better than where Dirk was at this point in his career. It's amazing to me how he's improved in that department.
For a guy who plays 4 & 5, 8-9 rbs is not a big deal. Most pf's and Centers average about 11 or 12 rbs career wise. I think Tim duncan's career avg is around 12 rbs. So Dirk and Andrea are not great rebounders.
