That's simply wrong. Melo has 20 rebounds for the series. Only 4 of them are offensive.
Chandler has 7 rebounds for the series and 3 of them are offensive.
You just can't defend that. If you're 7'1 you can average 3.5 rebounds per game just by standing on the court for 30 minutes. Eventually the ball will come into your hands off the miss.
I remember in game 2 on one occasion Tyson had 2 options,either to contest from their guard or box out Hibbert. He let the guard shoot but he didn't box out Hibbert. Instead he was just standing and then pushed Hibbert in the back after the guard missed the shot. Of course,he got called for a foul. That's just poor effort. Nothing else.
People are saying Melo can't do anything else but score. Well you know what,he's been rebounding and defending better than our 7'1 DPOY.
NO MORE EXCUSES FOR TYSON CHANDLER. IT'S THE PLAYOFFS. HE NEEDS TO SHOW UP OR GTFO.
