Dwight Howard is closing in on a couple Hornets single season REBOUND records. Currently on pace for Total & Defensive Rebounds barring injury (no jinx!), but Offensive Rebounds looks like a reach.
CURRENT RECORD HOLDERS
TOTAL: Larry Johnson (899)
OFFENSIVE: Larry Johnson (323)
DEFENSIVE: Anthony Mason (649)
DWIGHT HAS (as of conclusion of Bulls game 2/27, 21 games to go)
TOTAL: 766 (133 to go, needs to avg 6.3 PG, current avg 12.56 PG)
OFFENSIVE: 202 (121 to go, needs to avg 5.8 PG, current avg 3.31 PG)
DEFENSIVE: 564 (85 to go, needs to avg 4.0 PG, current avg 9.25 PG)
Unfortunately for those of us with season tickets, based on current averages, it looks like he would get the records on the road. The 3/17 Knicks game at Madison Square Garden looms large. Again this is obviously barring injury (and I know his ribs are currently hurting), but just wanted to update people on his progress towards those records! GO DWIGHT!
