DeAndre Jordan has shown to be quite the rebounder for the Los Angeles Clippers this season. Still, he’s not comparable to Wilt Chamberlain.
Los Angeles Clippers’ center DeAndre Jordan has been nothing short of unbelievable for his position this year. He has done everything you could ask a big man to do, scoring in the paint (shooting 75 percent at the rim), blocking shots (2.3 per game), and especially rebounding.

Jordan averages 14.2 rebounds per game, and has brought down 15+ boards in the last eight games.
Since the beginning of the year, Jordan has only had three single-digit rebounding games.
Jordan has also had 14 15+ rebounding games since January began, with five 20+ rebounding games just since February that included games of 27 and most recently (Mar. 1) 26 rebounds.
He also had three 20-20 games last month.
All-time great Wilt Chamberlain was also quite the rebounder in his time, as this graphic from ESPN shows.
If Chamberlain were still alive to this day, sure, he would give Jordan his props. But in reality, he wouldn’t be as impressed as most people are right now.
Chamberlain can certainly rest easy, because the chances of this record being broken are quite slim.
