Oakley vs Ewing as a Rebounder 

Post#1 » by SelakStreet » Fri Jan 14, 2022 2:09 am

Does Oakley have a case over Ewing as a rebounder for the Knicks? Both guys seem to be good rebounders while they’re in their 90s Knicks primes, but there can only be one rebound king.

In the years Oakley played 35-36mpg he seemed to averaged more rpg than Chewing.

Oakley also ranked higher in peak and career offensive reb % by a lot, and both peak and career total rebound % by a bit, though Ewing's defensive rebounding numbers are a little higher. So, I think the burden is on those who favor Ewing to counter the numbers and I'm interested to hear the arguments.
