Taking stock of blocks
You'd expect Bass, an undersized frontcourt player, to endure his fair share of blocks. By comparison, Glen Davis had 8 percent (64 of 801 attempts) during the 2010-11 season... Green's number seems surprisingly high just because of his athleticism and leaping ability... Some have wondered if Bradley's blocked attempts are up. Looking back to last season, he had 32 of 402 attempts swatted (8 percent), so he's actually down a tiny bit with his 3-point attempts rising.
