Not to take anything away from Dwight, but he's the only top flight rebounder in the league who gets the touches to score 30 points on any given night. The only other players who come close to having the same role at center are Yao, Amare, and Garnett, and Yao and Amare aren't very good rebounders while Garnett isn't the type to score thirty points, especially alongside Pierce and Allen. And players who are more capable of putting up the points and the rebounds, like Jefferson and Boozer, often play beside better rebounders than Dwight does.
Still, it's an impressive stat, no doubt about it.
