Another great quiz Ben. That's tougher than I thought it would be. Some fairly mediocre players on that list (13,017 and 11,901).
Jan 6th, 2009 at 18:38 GMT
I thought Mutombo just signed to play again with the Rockets.
Jan 6th, 2009 at 18:49 GMT
Neil beat me to it- I was going to say, Mount Mutombo needs an asterisk. Also, I love the write-up on the front page about Martin Lawrence.
Jan 6th, 2009 at 18:54 GMT
I missed Silas, Mutombo, and Bellamy. Parts of this list are very suprising. I would have guessed that Rodman was higher on this list. Thats all he did was rebound. Led the league almost every year. Its not like he didn't get enough PT. Notably absent: Willis Reed, Kevin McHale, Bill Walton, and mostly David Robinson. McHale and Walton were both injury plagued, but I can't believe Robinson isn't on here. He was such an enigma. Without question the mostly physically gifted/most athletic 5 of his generation. Just never had that cut-your-throat competative mentality and I think that shows here. Wasn't until Duncan came along that he got a ring. As much as everyone makes fun of Patrick Ewing he got much more out of his abilites than Robinson ever did. I am a David Robinson fan, too. Class act. Great guy. Just never seemed to LOVE playing and winning. Definitely not like the Jordans, Birds, Magics, Russells, etc. of the world.

i take it aba stats don't count?
Jan 6th, 2009 at 23:05 GMT
In about 10 years Dwight Howard will be at the top of that list!
Jan 7th, 2009 at 02:09 GMT
21/25, love love love this quiz. Typed in Robinson and Walton twice -- in shock they aren't on this list. I tried Clyde Drexler and Kevin Duckworth from the 1990-92 Blazers, then lucked into Buck Williams at the end when I started typing in common last names.
Jan 7th, 2009 at 02:54 GMT
rumour has it that Wilt Chamberlain slept a number of women equal to his rebounding total
Jan 7th, 2009 at 11:21 GMT
http://www.basketball-reference.com/players/w/willibu01.html Scroll down to the bottom of this page. Buck Williams wasn't mediocre. I think he'll probably just miss eventually making the HoF.
Jan 7th, 2009 at 13:09 GMT
Camden, couldn't agree more about the Admiral. Class act. (And I HATE the Spurs) Lotta unsung heroes on this list. Loved Oakley and missed him. Surprised Zo's not here though. And I guess McHale suffered because the Chief was doing such a good job cleaning the glass. Too early to tell about Dwight Howard. One has to average 10 boards a game over 13 years (and play in almost every game) to get on to this list...
Jan 7th, 2009 at 13:55 GMT
Howard will be in there believe that, unless he suffers a devestating injury , he will be on the top 5 of this list, he is averaging close to 13 rpg in his career ..that is bannanas
Jan 11th, 2009 at 19:56 GMT
I am surprised that Mark Eaton was one of the best blockers ever and didnt even made this rebounding list
Jan 12th, 2009 at 04:55 GMT
Charles Barkley was an enigma. He was about 6'4 but could rebound and play in the post with the best of them. A bit mouthy, but a great player.
Jan 18th, 2009 at 04:37 GMT
Can we get an NBA assist leaders quiz?
Jan 23rd, 2009 at 02:16 GMT
Mutombo should have an asterisk, he is signed to the Rockets. Great game though.
Jan 29th, 2009 at 05:47 GMT
Eaton didn't play that long. He was a good rebounder but not close to the all-time leaders.
Jan 29th, 2009 at 05:51 GMT
Howard is no sure thing at all to make the top 5. Shaq has played a long time and isn't close. 13 RPG is great now but was not that amazing in the '60s. There are fewer shots and rebounds these days. If he lasts a long time he could make it, but who knows what shape he'll be in when he's 30+.
Feb 25th, 2009 at 10:14 GMT
its hard to guess some not familiar players to me.i think mutombo is still playing this season.
Apr 9th, 2009 at 18:37 GMT
Wilt Chamberlain is the MAN!
Apr 25th, 2009 at 16:18 GMT
well now he officialy retired after getting injured during the playoffs
Apr 30th, 2009 at 17:10 GMT
@Camden Along with Walton and McHale Reed was also injury plagued. Robinson just missed the list as he has 10,497 boards
May 22nd, 2009 at 02:22 GMT
Chamberlain and Russell set the standard and nobody will ever touch them.
Jun 10th, 2009 at 05:31 GMT
No Robinson and no Mourning...thought they had a shot.
Aug 12th, 2009 at 11:26 GMT
Finally get to the list with all the big men. I totally forgot about Garnett...
Aug 29th, 2009 at 20:01 GMT
beckleyman, Barkely was 6'6". Another player who was 6'6" is Dennis Rodman. Goes to show you, it's not the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog- or however it may go. :)
Nov 23rd, 2009 at 17:35 GMT
Only 21/25, figured I'd do better. Missed Schayes, Willis, Williams, and Silas
Dec 17th, 2009 at 06:16 GMT
Robinson missed two prime years at the start of his career because he was in the Navy, otherwise, he'd be a lock for this list. And fellow Spur Tim Duncan will probably be on this list soon as well.
May 2nd, 2010 at 20:22 GMT
Duncan should be on this list 11,335 he's ahead of Schayes
May 18th, 2010 at 13:53 GMT
I see Duncan made the list, but he needs an asterisk since he's active.
Mar 2nd, 2011 at 01:55 GMT
I had no idea Williams, Silas and Oakley pulled down that many rebounds. I am ashamed.
Aug 30th, 2012 at 14:19 GMT
would've had the whole first column if I knew "Parish" didn't have 2 r's.
