Lavoy Allen gets 22 rebounds

Huh. When was the last time a Celtic got 20+ boards?...

All we need is a powerful beast that can soar up to the skies and lay waste on our enemies. One with potential to wreak havoc and strike fear. With such a mythical being, we can take back what is ours - with fire and blood.

I hear talk that such a beast is projected #1 overall in the 2014 draft.

Isn't he normally a fairly underwhelming rebounder?

Sully's career high is 16.

4.2 rebounds in 15 minutes give or take in 2011/12. Not too shabby, at all.

December 7, 2008.  KG had 20 in a win over the Pacers.

The last time a Celtic had 22 boards was in January 2007, when Big Al had 22 against the Pistons.

Not noticeably.

He is a pretty good KG stopper, though. KG always has a tough time against him.

Man, 5 years ago?

Hopefully someone will break the streak soon. My money is on Collins.

We have played slower paced games and make many shots.
When we often force opponents to miss, we just let anyone get boards, pretty randomly.

It's since we  play a different style game that does not typically reward high rebound totals.

Here is every game where a Celtic has had 15+ boards since 2008:

Pretty impressive that Rondo has 2 of the top 8 best rebounding efforts over the past six seasons.

Firstly he's an extraordinary rebounding PG already, boxing out with the likes of Sully.
Secondly, our game force misses which lets any player get easy DREBS and the aggressive Rondo loves padding stats.

I'm not sure I agree with your second point.  Sure, Rondo has been known to chase stats from time to time, but I don't think there's anything easy about grabbing 18 boards.  It's something that happens roughly twice per season on our team.  To have Rondo up there with KG and Perk is impressive.

He almost had a 20/20/20 too, right? Against Jeremy Lin's Knicks I believe?

With the height Collins has, I would be grabbing 20+ rebounds every game for the Celtics no matter how many minutes I was given (obviously at least 5 minutes of playing).

Assuredly false. By a long shot.

To have the kind of co-ordination that even Jason Collins has at 7 foot and 250 pounds is amazing.
