Carmelo Says Thunder Players 'Cool' With Russell Westbrook Stealing Rebounds

Carmelo Says Thunder Players 'Cool' With Russell Westbrook Stealing Rebounds

Westbrook now sits at 9.9 rebounds per game after putting up 10.7 a game previous year and has led all non-big men in that category by a wide margin both times. However, Westbrook's success has led many National Basketball Association experts to claim that Westbrook "steals" rebounds from his teammates. He led the way in an 18-point comeback effort, but at one point of the game something felt off. Westbrook has always been someone to rack up rebounds, but it felt like he was chasing them.

While Westbrook critics will use this as ammo, Anthony made it clear that he doesn't mind the guard coming back to get the ball.

Impressively, Westbrook now needs 16 rebounds on Thursday (AEDT) agianst the Memphis Grizzlies to average a triple-double for the second consecutive season.

Carmelo: "We got a defensive rebound".

"I don't think nobody thinks twice about that", Anthony added when pressed further about Westbrook's occasional thievery on the glass.

Westbrook entered last night's game against the Miami Heat needing a total of 34 rebounds in the last two games of the season in order to achieve the feat - and he went out and pulled down 18 boards. "As long as we get the rebound, I don't think we anxious about that". Individually, we're not like, 'Damn, I got to get this rebound. "I gotta rebound more.' As long as we get the rebound, we all cool with that".

Clearly, Anthony and his teammates take no issue with Westbrook's pursuit of history.
