NBA: Dear Andris Biedrins, Who Do You Think You Are?

Dear Andris Biedrins,

Who do you think you are? Shaq? Dwight? Kareem? Russell?

I mean, really. You just put up 17 points and 21 boards.

TWENTY-ONE REBOUNDS, I mean, come on!

I know you play for a team that is conducive to nice fantasy stats, but damn, why must you do it against my team?

But what is really scary is that this is the second time you have grabbed 20 rebounds this season.

I remember you as a softy who only put up decent rebound numbers because the rest of your team refused to play defense, but bringing down 20-plus boards not once but twice means you aren't soft.

What confuses me even more is that if you continue to put up the numbers you have so far this season (15 points, 12 rebounds, and 1.5 blocks), then you have to be considered one of the top centers in the league.

I mean, sure, we are in a time when there are no real dominant centers, but to say that you are one of the best big men in the NBA, no matter when, it says something.

I look at the Western Conference and you lead all centers, and every other position now that I actually look into it, in rebounds in a conference that has Yao, Shaq, Al Jefferson (he is good, I promise), Camby, Boozer, Duncan, Oden, and all the other dominant big men in the supposed better conference.

Biedrins, you are second in the league in rebounding to Dwight Howard. I never thought I would say that, except maybe after the first game of the season, in which you had a career game.

They say the numbers don't lie, no matter how much as our soon-to-be-out-of-work-president would like to say otherwise.

So, Andris Biedrins, you are officially a beast on the boards, and have proved no matter how much I would love to say this facetiously, I just can't: You should seriously be considered for MVP.

With Much Love and a Newfound Appreciation,
