In Saturday’s win over the Detroit Pistons, Howard made more in the rebounding department.
With his sixth rebound on Saturday, Howard moved into 11th place on the NBA’s all-time rebounding list, passing the great Walt Bellamy. Teams fire up a bunch of 3-pointers which means longer rebounds out to the guards, so the fact Howard is still rebounding at an elite level is a testament to his ability to stay in shape and to keep going in this league. “They’re longer, so it’s very hard to get rebounds so I’m just very thankful that the most high has given me a great body to go out there and go get rebounds. It takes a lot, so I want to continue to do what I can to help his team win.”
Howard has said in the past that he is a big admirer of Sixers franchise great Wilt Chamberlain who happens to sit at the top of the rebounds list.
