Young draftees Kelly Olynyk and Colton Iverson...New Twin Towers
posted at 6/28/2013 11:24 AM EDT
Ya know, for a few years I and many posters have lamented our being last or next to it in rebounding needing to shoot 45-50% to compensate for -10 in rebounds. I envied the Lakers with the twin towers. Bynum & Gasol and only Kobe(other players were mediocre) & they beat us in 2010(forget egregious difference in 41-18 foul shots) by outrebounding us. Don't forget too that the Spurs dominated with Duncan & Robinson for years.
Now, I'm not saying these 2 are gifted as Bynum & Gasol but who knows that in addition to Melo perhaps developing we could have TRIPLE towers (HA!) & the PFs Sully & Wilcox too should help us be +10 in rebounding.

Olynyk is not a rebounder nor does he possess a left hand; he's slow laterally and a disappointing defender (DraftExpress). Iverson is more athletic, but both played against relatively weak competition, so "stats" might be deceiving. I, for one, would be happier had Ainge gone elsewhere with the pick. I hope my assessment is premature and not prophetic.
