If he didn't have exceptional reboounders like Lee and Frye beside him, his 7 boards could be 10. He doesn't have to do it alone thats all.
Ive seen him throw up some pretty bad shots, although not often. But what im saying is I dont think that sould ever happen. But for the most part when he gets the ball, expect some points or a defensive foul.
