Rebounding is fairly easy to fix. I have a personal view of rebounding. If I am inside the 3 point line and there is one or two team mates after the shot I will go for the rebound. Other wise I will break on the defense. Oh an have a goal in mind to get at least 10 rebounds a game!!!

Simple problem: There just aren't enough quality bigs on this team.

IMO Battie is a nice bench guy, Foyle is just too old, and Gortat isn't getting the game time he needs to develop.

The guards (when we are at full strength) are more than adequate.

Time to grab a physical rebounder if Gortat isn't gonna cut it. Play him asap or get someone else to help with the defense and rebounding.
