I mistakenly posted the wrong line for Jefferson of '04; here is the
relevant line of comparison with his near-quad-double night:

-- min eff% Sco. Reb Ast P.F Stl T.O Blk - Total
RJ1 38 .571 21.6 6.0 4.2 2.7 1.1 2.4 0.3 - 31.8
RJ2 57 .497 17.4 15. 6.1 1.5 2.2 8.0 0.7 - 34.1

..the 2nd line being his 57-minute effort last night.

Well, 21 rebounds in a game that is 50-46 for his team, in that
category, does a lot of good.

Wilt Chamberlain would have been having a typical game, to go 26-21-
9, around '67 or '68. And we don't know about turnovers, "back
then".

What if the 4 players in your example got 84 boards to the
opponents' total of 46? How many teams don't win with that kind of

The fact the player had 11 TO and his team DID win says that one
player with that stat line can contribute to a winning effort. His
coach didn't take him out much.

That’s true, but by the same reasoning, said team would’ve grabbed 84 rebounds.  That’d be basically every single missed shot in today’s NBA.  The Nets could give the ball away a lot and still be okay, if they grabbed every single one of their missed shots plus all of their opponents missed shots.
