In lieu of T A-H, a new feature...

Silly bhoyal.  Thinking this was going to stay on the topic of offensive rebounding.

Somebody hinted the team wants guys to get back to prevent run-outs.  After that,  it all went south.

Hope the powers at large noticed both power forwards combined for zero offensive boards and re-think the strategy if it is indeed part of a larger strategy.  Stopping run-outs is important, yes.  But getting demolished on the glass is not a good thing.

Fun fact...without looking at bb reference guess which country has the most top 10  rebounders in the NBA?

It's the way of today's NBA. Teams prioritize transition D over offensive rebounding. Team O rebound%'s have been dropping for 20 years. How about this quote re Pop and O rebounds: https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/the-nbas-other-offensive-revolution-never-turning-the-ball-over/

". . . while numerous observers have noted that teams are increasingly prioritizing getting back in transition defense over chasing offensive rebounds. As ESPN’s Zach Lowe explained in 2016, the Spurs were among the first teams to deprioritize offensive rebounds, with former Spurs assistant and current 76ers head coach Brett Brown once noting that Popovich did not care if a player didn’t grab a single offensive rebound during his entire career."

Oh well. It's one of those Eastern European countries. Lithuania? 

Yes...Country without even 3m in population leading NBA top 10 rebounders with 2...every other country (run by little girls) only has 1.  

p.s. Even USA has only 1 (Westbrook) top 10 NBA rebounder...at least is not (anymore) run by little girl.

Lol. Valancuinas and who else?  Not Capela or Gobert - he's a Frenchie. The Pacers guy? Sabonis. Is he from Lithuania?

I think there is some truth to that. But other teams are dealing with the same crazy schedules and injuries too. Last night the Knicks didn't have their starting and backup centers, and were playing the back end of a road back to back, while we had a rest day, and were healthy. 

The only team that has this bad a schedule (and it's been historically rough in terms of # games in a compressed timeframe after the ASB) is the Spurs, and they're routinely resting their key guys (plus they've dropped 4 in a row as well).

Commiserations to Real Madrid fans. 

Time for renewal. The old guys are too old and the young guys still not there.

I saw the original Sabonis play in person once.  He is not little or a girl.

Good question. Perhaps he just has a bigger motor or he was in better shape. 

DB is the new age Hondo.  Said it when he was drafted.

I suspect this might have to do with who were Dillon's basketball idols when he was growing up - Dwayne Wade and Vince Carter. I'm sure that he saw how conditioning played such a major role in the longevity that Vince had as a player (22 seasons), while Wade's career was shortened (only 16 seasons) by the injuries he played through for years. 

Dillon is a tank.  He’s a bit like Luka.
