In response to rameakap's comment:
Bass is 4.9 boards in about 25 minutes. Horrible.
Green is 3.2 in 24 minutes. Pathetic.
Like I said I like the rest of Greens game a lot, but a lot of shooting guards are better rebounders than Green.
Of course you want more rebounds from Green, esp as a combo-forward, but thats not 'pathetic' as a shooter-slasher. Bass is worse IMO.
As exclusively a SF, 3.2 in 24 mins puts him at about 4.7 in starters mins (36). Pierce averaged exactly 5 boards a game the past 3 years playing a little over 34 mins a game. Granted when Paul was 25-28 years old he played 36-39 minutes a game and pulled down 6-7 rebounds a game.
But I think you'd be hard pressed to find 'a lot' of SG's who average over 4.7 rebounds per 36 minutes snake. Unless you have a list ready.
As a matter of fact I found 14. http://espn.go.com/nba/statistics/player/_/stat/rebounds/sort/avg48Rebounds
Green averages 6.5 boards per 48 minutes. that puts him at 136 in the NBA. Espn says green is a pf and it ranks him 50 out of 50 in that category. I know he plays more SF than PF but just saying.
if you put him at SF he would have 36 other SF's ahead of him.
SG's and Pg's who board better this year per 48 minutes then green are:
Bryant, Singler, Sefalosa, Wade, Kidd, Bledsoe, Westbrook, Barton, JR Smith, Vince carter, Tony Allen, Igoudala, Tucker,
I stand by pathetic. Like I said the rest of his game I like a lot.
