Best Rebounders In NBA History
The Top Ten
The Worm was tenacious. He knew he couldn't shoot a ball to save his life so he makes up for it in his ruthless, aggressive, addiction to getting the ball back and giving it to his scorers. Dennis Rodman was beyond a shadow of a doubt one of the best defenders shot blockers and rebounders ever even with his shorter height. He was a lion
In the modern era Dennis played against 29 other teams. Wilt and Russell played against 8 teams. And also more talent, more athleticism during rodmans time and Shaq was playing duncan Hakeem I mean he played against so many great centers and he out rebounded them all
He was absolutely the best. He made rebounding an art form and made the Hall of Fame primarily on those skills alone. Traveling to North Korea? He means no harm. Rodman craves attention. Always has, always will.
He is number one because of his height as 6'7 and he grab ball with the 7footers guys. And hard work. To get the ball.. Wilt. Is to tall and also bill... That's why for me rodman is the first in the list
Wilt Chamberlain would chew up and spit out tiny pieces of Dennis Rodman.
Chamberlain set the NBA record of 55 rebounds in a game against possibly the best defender of all time, Bill Russell.
His average over his career is almost 23 per game, plus top 5 in scoring proves he did it on bolth sides of the court. Rodman did nothing on the offensive end, learn the game!
This is legit crazy. Dude in his last year at age 36 he averaged 18.6 rebounds per game. Seriously and he is not number 1?
Wilt played against HOF centers every night, not in the post-expansion NBA where most centers were stiffs.
He played against the second-best rebounder ever [Bill Russell] over 130 times.
Wilt would eat Dennis Rodman for breakfast, and today's weak-sister centers like Noah or the Lopez brothers would simply run and hide when he walked on the court.
The NBA's current best rebounder is slow, white, unathletic 6-7 Kevin Love, how pathetic.
I think you guys have good opinions but I give it to russlle
He was pretty krappin amazing
24.9 reb per game in nba playoffs
One of the best all time. Not a lot of help in houston.
Definitely the best offensive rebounder ever
Charles barkley then nate Thurmond
The best people come on
Come on guys, get real. Jerry Lucas outrebounded Walt Bellamy in college and in the pros and always. He was pound per pound the best rebounder ever. Look at his numbers per playing minutes and tell me why he is not 3rd to Chamberlain and Russell! He even outrebounded Russell for one entire year! If you want this list to have crediblity you need Jerry Lucas way up high or the list is messed up and NOT REAL!
Lucas is one of 3 players to avg. 20 pts and 20 rebounds in a season Eat your heart out Rodman.
The best player of all time
Shaq is a good rebounder.
He should be higher
Haha this list just lost every bit of credibility possible. Attention avid NBA fans looking for an entertaining read on a reputable site, LEAVE NOW! Basic homerism wouldn't even explain this level of ignorance.
Shaqtin a fool
Most underrated rebounder of all time.
Deserves to be higher than Kevin Garnett.
4 seasons leading in rebounds, in this modern era. Come on guys, D12 deserves to be higher
Should be higher on this list
Only season to avg less then 10 boards was his rookie year and he was 6’6
In the top 10 every full season that he played. Averaged 20 a game one season at only 6'5''.. Had over 30 rebounds in a game 3 times. Had a game with 71 points scored and 25 rebounds. Absolutely in the top 5 all-time.
He was the best maker ever rebounding scoring defense
At 6’ 5 he averaged over 13.5 rebounds per game and one of the games all time leaders in points per game.
If you are trying to tell me that anyone is better than the white mamba himself at anything, then you have never had the privilege to witness a scalabrine game
The BEST, no question.
He may be old but he is the best current. Player in the nba
Trip double king!
