Actually, AB's career average is 4.9. Only in the past four seasons, including this year, has he had an average over 5. His 6.4 rbg this year represents a career best.

Regardless of his rebounding numbers, AB is making the effort to become a more complete basketball player. He's battling hard and sacrificing himself, and that is leadership by example.
