Is Andrea Bargnani the second coming of Dirk Nowitzki? Or perhaps the Rashard Lewis and Channing Frye comparisons are more accurate? All four of those players show up on this list of the 50 worst rebounders in the NBA.

Arturo Galletti ranks players according to ability to create their own shot. You'll probably be surprised to learn that DeMar DeRozan narrowly edges Kevin Durant in that department. Amir Johnson also finished ahead of Chris Bosh in Galletti's rankings. And Bargnani is in a dead heat with... drumroll please... Brook Lopez.
