Fresh off his MVP performance in the NBA’s Sophomores v. Rookies game, David Lee recorded his 28th double-double of the season, scoring 14 points and pulling down 16 boards. Lee is averaging 10.7 rebounds per game (sixth in the league), and is leading the league in shooting percentage at 61.1 percent.

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, only four players in the history of the NBA have averaged at least 10 boards for a season while shooting 60 percent or better from the floor. They are: Wilt Chamberlain (3 times), Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (once), Artis Gilmore (five times), and Shaquille O’Neal (once).

Elias points out that in addition to Lee, there are four other players vying to join that illustrious group: Tyson Chandler (12.3 rebounds per game and 60.7% from the floor), Dwight Howard (12.0 and 59.6 percent), Amare Stoudemire (9.5 and 59.2 percent) and Andris Biedrins (9.6 and 61.0 percent).
