What does Deandre Jordan need to do to become a formidable rebounder? He has the length, but seems to get pushed around.

See even other fans notice this. DJ is just mentally and physically soft. He doesn't know his strength and the minute teams rough him up he folds. Amazing length and solid strength yet guards regularly punk him for rebounds, let alone smaller bigmen.

There's a certain mentality that goes into being a great rebounder and DJ just doesn't have it right now, or at least he's very inconsistent with it.

DJ has a soft mentality and no idea how to box out. He can only get rebounds from athleticism alone. In fact, he needs to start trying to add some skill to his game in general like Blake has been doing, instead of relying 100% on athleticism.

Blake and DJ are in the same situation, I ALWAYS see them under the hoop while the paint is clobbered by players, or they're staying there and BOOM, guards just come in and steal the rebound or big men get it, cause they just CAN'T do a simple thing like Boxing Out. Who remembers the Denver game when in the 1st we let like 4 offensive rebounds, WHILE ALL our guys were in the paint.

Our starting frontcourt doesn't box out and BG seems to have loss his motor. Its like 50% of what it used to be....

Get him and blake a rebounding coach. Sometimes I feel Deandre lets Griffin get rebounds so Griffin can fill his stat sheet. Dj needs to come in with the mindset that it's him vs 9 other players. He needs to get that rebound and Del Negro needs to encourage some competition between blake and DJ. This is the only bad thing I see about the roster being so cool with each other. It takes the competition out of the team. Dj needs to get hungry

We got blake and DJ a shooting coach as if they were done with their big man development... these guys cant even box out yet. They're being developed wrong.

Our total rebounding is just slightly down from last year's numbers, that's not our main problem. Both favorites (Miami & OKC) to win the title are average to below average rebounding teams.

Opposing guards coming in to steal rebounds and that's dj and Blake faults? They're boxing out THEIR man. Who's boxing out the guards?

Nothing unless you tell him to chase rebounds like Evans. The best center in the west is Marc gasol and he only averages 7 rebounds.

yup. cp3, crawford and green let curry and jack get offensive rebounds, which led to 3 pointers being made soon after. rebounding is a collective effort, not just the effort of bg and dj. i agree they both need to improve, but sometimes the guards and the small forward, whether it be barnes or butler need to box out at least
