Greg Monroe – 8.7 rebounds per game – 25th in the NBA

It’s no surprise Monroe is leading the Bucks in rebounding. It’s more surprising that he doesn’t have more boards–and that Giannis and not Monroe is leading the Bucks in scoring, honestly.

As usual in the early going, this leaderboard is crammed full of players right now. With just two more boards per game, Moose would jump up to seventh in the Association. Maybe a little more effort on the defensive glass would end in Monroe being a top ten rebounder this season.

Anyway, I don’t mean to knock on Greg too much–he’s been awesome for the Bucks so far. He’s in the top two Bucks in four of the five main stats, and fourth on the team in assists. The most likely reason he’s so low in terms of rebounding is because Monroe has been active all over the court–don’t be surprised to see him again on this list.

Anyway, it turns out Andre Drummond and Monroe really do work better away from each other. Monroe has obviously been good for Milwaukee, but Drummond is leading the NBA in rebounding by a large margin–this dude is grabbing 20.3 boards a game, to go with his 20.3 points per game. Yeesh.
