Channing Frye: Rebound better

Channing Frye has made a great comeback since missing a year with heart trouble. He has returned to his old form. That’s mostly good, but not entirely. Frye, as the teams starting power forward, has got to improve his rebounding.

It’s not bad. He’s averaging 5.4 per game this season.  However, as the teams starter, especially on a team that is generally weak in the rebounding department, he’s got to try to do better, because someone has to do it. He’s 6’11″ so he certainly has the length to go up and crash the boards more.

The other reason is that he’s not in a secure starting role. Markieff Morris has been enjoying an excellent season, and because the team is in need of more inside physicality, it isn’t impossible to think that he will suck up more time on a team that needs someone tough on the glass.

Again, it isn’t a glaring flaw, but Channing Frye would definitely be a much improved asset if he could grab more boards.
