I saw this debate on another sports group. Roy Hibbert is getting a ton of hype for DPOY. He is currently number one in defensive rating, and number 2 im blocks per game. So old and new stats both say he is an elite defender. But even I had to do a double take when looking at his rebounding numbers. He is currently averaging under 5 defensive rebounds a game. I'm going to assume that would be the lowest ever for a center winning DPOY.It has been said by old timers "a rebound is the end of a defensive play". Are we headed towards a new trend where we can look past this? Or does his rebounding numbers alarm you? Just an interesting topic to me. What do you guys think?
Edit: Marc Gasol had more defensive rebounds per game last year, but still averaged under 8 total rebounds per game. So this is a trend going on now. But one that might make Bill Russell punch someone. Lol.
