LeBron may still be more athletic than everyone else but hes definitely not 2009 LeBron.

You have to thank heaven he's not 2009 Lebron - the Mental midget version. At least in 2016 he got into Curry's head..... back in the day, it was the other way around.

Or to copy/paste from this article:

"According to SportVU, over the last three seasons, guards have accounted for 35 percent of defensive rebounds off 3-point shots and 31 percent of defensive rebounds off 2-point shots. So as the league shoots more threes, guards grab more rebounds."
Probably has something to do with pretty much every big taking 3's now a days, which lets the smaller guys run into the paint and grab the rebounds.
