This year was supposed to be the breakout year for Brook Lopez. This year was supposed to be the season when Lopez solidified his status as one of the up and coming NBA big men. This was supposed to be the year when Lopez statistics increased across the board. The thing that Lopez appears to have a problem with are the boards themselves.
Lopez's third season has been a rebounding disappointment after averaging 8.1 and 8.6 rebounds per game in his first two season, respectively. So far Lopez is only averaging 5.6 rebounds per game.
So far Brook's rebounding has been gradually decreasing from month to month. What can Lopez do to improve his rebounding?
Maybe a history lesson is in order.
