A modest 23 rebounds per game

From ESPN.com writer Ian Whittell's article on European NBA prospects, and specifically the portion dealing with Maccabi Tel Aviv's Omri Casspi:

"[...] his playing time increased after Zvi Sherf took over coaching duties in January and his 4.6 points and 23 rebounds a game were of higher quality than the basic numbers suggest."

If a player is averaging 23 rebounds a game, then I'd say the basic numbers are of pretty high quality! (Note: Casspi is, unsurprisingly, actually averaging 2.3 rebounds a game)
