Default Has a team ever won the NBA Champioship being LAST in the NBA in Rebounding?

Honest question. I think it's shocking that the odds-on favorite to win the Championship is LAST in the NBA in rebounding. Has a team ever won a Championship while being the worst rebounding team in the league?

I highly doubt it. Championship teams are usually pretty balanced and only have relative weaknesses.

They don't rebound the ball a lot but they don't give up a ton of offensive rebounds and they play great defense so I don't it being a huge problem for them to overcome. Only team that may give them trouble is Indiana though. But it's tough to say that they could overcome LeBron/Wade/Bosh in a 7 game series.

Chris Bosh averaged 18 and 8 last year and tied with Lebron as the Heat's best rebounder.


In the playoffs, Lebron averaged 9.7 RPG

That's pretty troubling for them.
Not that it's impossible for them to do it, it just strikes me as a real red flag.

Now that Sullinger is out for the season, the Celtics are gonna take Miami's last place in rebounding, so you don't have to wonder anymore...

You mean rebounding differential or total rebounds? Because rebounding differential is a far better way to judge how well a team rebounds. The post-'09 Celtics were greatly held back by their rebounding. It's the biggest reason they didn't win the 2010 title, and if they were a decent rebounding team, they would have been in the finals last season.

If we're talking Differential, Miami is the 8th worst team in the NBA. The Kings and Mavs are actually the worst.

Where did you find the stats for rebounding differential? It'd be interesting to see who the worst team was. I can't remember any championship teams who were poor rebounding teams off the top of my head.

I find their rebounding problems due to their defensive system.
Bosh was averaging 10 rebound per game plus in toronto. Lebron, Wade for their positions are very good rebounders.

But their defensive system is to push for turnovers...overhelping. which catches them out of place many times.
