The stat people don't seem to see it that way. In fact, he is no where near it on the NBA stat chart. Away games? Biased stat guys?? I don't know but hell, he gets at least two BIG blocks a game, that doesn't count the numerous tips he gets that are still blocked shots. thats the difference between just some guy and a DPOY candidate that includes millions in endorsements and a trip to the allstar game. Surely lofty targets, but you see where I'm going with this.
Yeah it is strange. He's listed at 1.5BPG. I agree that he seems to be in the 2-3 per game, with the odd game with 3-4. Didn't he have one game this season where he had 5 or 6?
