Ajinca and rebounding - TigerinATL
This is one thing that has puzzled me since last year about Ajinca's game. The stats say he is a very good rebounder, 12 per 36 and 18.9% TRB%. Not as good as Asik's 13.7 and 21.6%, but still very good individual rebounding stats. He's also a big guy that takes up a lot of space with his long arm...

Ryan Anderson, Backup Center - TigerinATL
Why are so many down on Anderson this year? Some of it is the less reliable than usual 3 point shot, but most of it is his horrible defense. Why does his defense seem so much worse this year? 2 years ago Robin Lopez was the big he played the most minutes with by a large margin. Last year he misse...

Why couldn't Demps do what Presti did? - TigerinATL
Rick Adelman is why. If that Minnesota pick is as high as it was expected to be, we draft Damian Lillard instead of Austin Rivers. No need to trade for Holiday and we are now following the OKC model. But Rick Adelman is a good coach and totally screwed the Pelicans. OKC started out the seas...
