In response to CHEisCHE's comment:
Kirk -- blocking out is a part of inside game that Che was complaining from the start that they didn't have. If you don't have an inside game, there is no ability to block out...simple as that
I disagree. Technique is very important.
Doc is the problem. He never emphasises blocking out.
So Doc didn't emphasize blocking out in 2008 when the Celts averaged 42 rpg?
How about in 2009, the Celts averaged 42.1 rpg, Doc didn't emphasize blocking out that season too?
It's not Doc, it's KG getting old!
That's why the Celts need to upgrade that PF position, KG needs help!
KG is a career 10-11 rebounds per game player. Right now KG is only averaging 8 boards per game.
Agree we need help. KG getting old is mainly effecting his minutes. That is the reason he averages 8 rebounds per game compared to his his career 10.6. He is playing 8 less minutes a game. You think that might have something to do with the 3 rebound difference? I imagine he could get at least 1 and probably 2 rebounds more per game if he played 8 more minutes.
Docs system is only partially the problem. He doesn't emphasize getting offensive rebounds, but would rather people get back on defense. I would prefer a couple guys fight for offensive boards and everyone else get back. Boxing out and keeping the other team from getting offensive boards is another story. I have no idea if Doc stresses boxing out but if i were to bet, it would be he stresses it all the time. If players don't do it then its up to Doc to correct the problem. Going small has a lot to do with our rebounding problems. I would love for Doc to make teams adjust to us and not us adjust to them. I hate it when he says we had to go small.
