Greg Monroe – 1.1 blocks per game – 32nd in the NBA

Once John Henson plays enough games with the Bucks to qualify, this spot will certainly be his. Until then, however, Greg Monroe finds another home for himself at the very top of all Bucks in blocks, league-wide. His impact on this basketball team is crazy.

More from Behind the Buck Pass

If you’re only looking at Milwaukee Bucks that have played enough to qualify for the league leaders (which makes sense, because it means they’ve done more for the team), Monroe is second in points, third in assists and obviously first in rebounds, steals and blocks. That kind of all-around performance wasn’t expected when Milwaukee signed Monroe, but the Bucks will certainly take it.

Although he may not hold so many spots when I come back and revisit these numbers a month or so from now, Moose is likely to still be around the top five in all statistical categories in Milwaukee. He’s also been an efficient field-goal and free throw shooter.

Greg Monroe has been great for this Bucks team so far, and certainly seems worth the max money Milwaukee is paying him. Hopefully some other Bucks can get healthy and fight him for the top spot in these stat categories. A healthy level of competition can only be good for this team in the long-term.
