1. Kevin Love, Minnesota Timberwolves (Currently No. 2)
5.3 offensive rebounds per game/9.8 defensive rebounds per game/15.0 total rebounds per game, 15.0 offensive rebound percentage/26.4 defensive rebound percentage/20.8 total rebound percentage
I am ready to hand him the rebounding crown. That is all.
2. Dwight Howard, Orlando Magic (Currently No. 3)
Dwight Howard is an absolute monster on the defensive glass, but he doesn't possess the same tenacity as Kevin Love on the offensive boards. That, and that alone, will keep him from ascending any higher on this list.
3. Andrew Bynum, Los Angeles Lakers (Currently No. 1)
Andrew Bynum is absolutely cleaning up on the boards so far this season, but he's also playing with fresher legs after serving a suspension to start the year.
As the notoriously fragile seven-footer keeps playing, expect his numbers to decline a bit.
4. DeMarcus Cousins, Sacramento Kings (Currently No. 8)
To be perfectly clear, DeMarcus Cousins starts a new tier of rebounders as he's clearly not on the level of Howard, Bynum or Love.
Now that Paul Westphal is out of the way (can I say that? Is that okay?), Cousins has free reign to terrorize opposing rebounders.
5. Marc Gasol, Memphis Grizzlies (Currently No. 6)
You can't teach size and Marc Gasol most assuredly has that. With Zach Randolph sidelined, his rebounding numbers may only go up from here.
