Seeing Kevin Love grab over 30 rebounds the other night inspired me to continue on with my minute-by-minute list.
When I compile an all-time list, I acquire the per minute production number. For instance, to see who are truly the best rebounders ever, I divide career rebounds by career minutes played.
On my per minute scoring list, you see Michael Jordan has the highest points per minute of any NBA player ever at .787 points per minute for his entire career! Crazy awesome! Aside from Gervin, no one was even close.
Same goes with assists, as we found out John Stockton dished it out for an all-time NBA career high of .331 assists per minute for his career! Nice.
Here I only gauged every player to ever grab 10 rebounds a game or more for their entire careers. There were over 40 of them, but I went a step further and only counted the guys who averaged .350 rebounds per minute or more for their careers.
This way you see who the true greatest rebounders EVER are.
Hint: Only one of today's NBA players are on this list. Those who got close are Marcus Camby and Ben Wallace. Close, but no cigar.
These are the greatest rebounders ever!
