who are the top 5 biggest, strongest,most athletic big men in the nba today
bout to make a point about a topic from awhile back
in no specific order:
i know i probably over looked someone towards the end
i mean big men as in pf or center
big men, you mean PF/C?
well if josh smiths playing pf right now for the hawks and hes 6-9 thats pretty much the same height as lebron 6-8^3/4
ohh and if ben wallace still has the lift hes in the mix even at 35 still avg 9 boards
TRU well the point i am trying to make to someone is that just because you have all that doesnt mean you are gonna be the best rebounder in the game. yeah that helps but effort is the bigget part of being a good/great rebounder and you dont have to big the biggest strongest or jump the highest to be a good rebounder but without effort you wont be. i cant remember exactly who i debated with about that , i think big o, but i figured id revisit the issue and see if the list people put up are the same as the top 5 rebounders in the league this year ....also yeah include sf sg and pg instead of jut big men
noahs beasting right now on the boards he killed the kings on the defensive and offensive glass right now
he dropped 13 and 14 on us and 12 and 15 on la
damn! i didnt know he had 21 rebound game in Denver
He isn't that big or strong. He is thinner than almost every other Center in the League.
1. Dwight Howard
2. Kevin Garnett
3. Amare Stoudamire
4. Tyson Chandler
5. Josh Smith
exactly..which is why i aid you dont have to be real big or strong to be a good rebounder
Physically, Noah definitely looks as though he's bulked up some since past seasons though Bulls fans may have been hoping for more than the five to six pounds he said he gained in the interview, but I think it's a legit five to six pounds unlike many of the off-seasons where guys say they add 15 pounds and look basically the same. I'd wager there's a good chance that his weight gain is about as good as anyone really gets over the summer, but he just didn't exaggerate it like most players do.
The best thing about Noah is that you have a real feeling that he let's you in. When he gives you an answer about teamwork or wins over individual achievement, it doesn't feel like a precanned message. It feels like he believes it, means it, and lives it.
