Although Murphy's rebounding numbers are down, the team's rebounding (as a whole) is up... meaning there are more players crashing the glass, which is why Murphy's individual numbers are down.

His shooting has never been better, either. The guy's playing great in Nelly's system.


Correct me if I am wrong, but... Warriors' rebounding is dramatically down. We're negative 8 boards a game this year vs. 2.2 last year.

Second worst in the league:

Biedrins is better than Mohammed, energy, finishing, blocks, and soon to be rebounds.

Well, I took into account that we're not playing in a halfcourt system anymore. More outside shots means more rebounds. We're running a fastbreak offense half the time and a post-offense the other half (through Ike or Baron, respectively).

If you watch this season compared to last season, you'll see there's a dramatic improvement in the team's rebounding, as a whole. The same can be said for their defense. I don't know if the numbers are showing it yet, but I bet you they will by midseason.

(C) Nazr Mohammed = Andris Biedrins

(1st Bench) Antonio McDysse < Ike Diogu

I'm being generous, giving Biedrins the bennefit of the doubt, seeing as Nazr puts up more rebounds and just as many points in less minutes. And I'm not going to be a tool and pretend that because Nelly starts JRich or Pietrus at SF a couple times, they've suddenly become "bigs". They're shooting guards. End of story.

That being said, Detroit's big men beat us 2:1.



I agree - The Pistons are still a very good team everywhere, frontline as well. Mohammed, Rasheed and McDyess are all capable of rebounding and shotblocking real well and both Rasheed and McDyess can score well when they want. The team does not have the frontline firepower that the Pistons do, even with Diogu

I see it more like this:

(C) Nazr Mohammed <Andris> Troy Murphy
(SF) Tayshaun Prince > Pietrus (as Dun is a bench player now)
(SG) Rip = J-Rich
(PG) Billups < Baron
(1st Bench) McDyess, Murray, Maxiell... < Ike, Monta, Dun...

No way. Billups was even considered as a possible MVP last year.

I didn't say Detroit had a better team than the Warriors; I said their big men are better. When you put ALL the players in the debate... I think the results speak for themselves. The Warriors won by 30.

But not in terms of big men... which is what I thought the argument was about:

Not anymore. After losing Big Ben, they're barely average...

:scratch: I disagree with this. Even without Big Ben, their front court is still superior to ours (and most teams in the league, for that matter).

The numbers show that the other team is outrebounding the Warriors by more than last season - That shows are decrease in rebounding efficiency for the team. Murphy has been the main guy to decrease in rebounding, by almost half actually. With JRich healthy and playing more, that should change a bit but the big guys are the ones that need to step up their rebounding

I also think that the Pistons have a better frontline than most teams. Rasheed explodes at anytime, Mohammed is a worker who consistently gets it done as he has rebounded and blocked well this season and McDyess is a great bench player that could start and average a double double. Prince is a great SF

That's a joke. Billups is a great player that didn't play well til he fit into the right team and concept. That's not a MVP.

And this Baron is better than him, without any kind of doubt. A different issue is how long will Baron stay focused and healthy... but when he is, there are very few pgs in the NBA better than him. Billups is not one of them.

Sure... except stats tell otherwise. 'Sheed (the only one I consider clearly better than our players) is averaging 11 and 9, Mohammed puts up 7 and 7 and McDyes 4 and 7... so, between the three, their inside game is averaging 22 points and 23 boards per game. I wouldn't call that a great frontline, just good (on boards, barely average on points).

It's true that they play better defense than most frontlines... but it's not the same without Big Ben. Detroit is weak this season, and it will show in the playoffs. They'll be lucky if they make it til the second round.

I see it as a more than capable frontline but we'll see come playoff time
