Nah, I think you misunderstood what I was trying to say.
Pace was the reason we were 26th in total boards. If you adjust the number for pace we end up being a lot better than that.
Example: Steven Jackson pulls in 8 boards a season & Crash also pulls in 8 boards a season. Are they equal rebounders or is one better?
Answer: Crash easily. Since GSW is a much faster paced team there are more boards to be had. Per 100 possessions puts the teams on a more equal footing...and in that respect we're at least average in rebounding.
The only thing that's changed is Mek for TC and at worst we lose 1-2 boards a game assuming TC stays healthy.
LB was complaining about the boards in preseason, and rightfully so. Boris vs. the Griz had ONE board in 33 minutes; last season he averaged 6 in 37 minutes. The backups are sucking, but as we've noted the backups always have sucked.
If you haven't noticed LB has certain things that are important for bigs to do. Until they're at least decent at it he's going to beat on them like a drum.
