He's not being traded (yet), so the Nets need Brook Lopez to rebound (pun intended) from last season, when his rebounding numbers dropped dramatically, especially since Kris Humphries isn't walking through that door (yet). The Nets aren't just tracking Lopez's rebounds this season, but his attempted boards as well.
Lopez, who Deron Williams says "should be a perennial All-Star," admits that he was OK letting Hump do all the work last season.
"It was a number of things," Lopez said about last season's rebounding regression on Monday. "I was being lazy, first and foremost."
