Favors has gotten more contested rebounds and more hustle rebounds than Jefferson has this year.
Jefferson is the designated garbage rebounder on this team - it's clear the other players defer to him on uncontested rebounds. Not a criticism. Karl Malone was the king of the garbage rebounds for most of his career. But his stats are padded.

Well, for 15mln he is a bad rebounder. And please, don't show me his stats. There always will be someone in 1st round playoff who will want that rebound more than him.
if stats where all that mattered tracy mcgrady would have made it out of the 1st round
I agree that Al is rebounding at a high rate this season. I also agree that he is a low post scorer and one of the best in the league at that right now.
Where I disagree is the assumption that Al is a legitimate #1 option. His history proves that. My frustration is that the schemes for the team revolve around Al.
Keep rebounding but move the ball more.
Cy is a Baker, he doesn't work fast food. Don't make that mistake, he doesn't like it.
He has done a much better job this year rebounding and getting to the FT line. I am interested to see if he keeps that up. I hope so because it is always nice to see guys improve/add to their game.
Al gets all the easy rebounds. the guy is the tallest man on the team he better be pulling down rebounds.

Not sure what you're getting at, Cy. When the stats (including team on-court/off-court) showed Al was an amazingly average rebounder the last two seasons, you scoffed at the stats. Now that the stats show that Al is rebounding at an elite level, you care only about the stats. A little intellectual integrity would be nice.
