Frequent visitors know we love to spotlight those that give up their body defensively as part of our Chargewatch series. With help from Synergy Sports data, here's a look at Boston's leaders in taking (and giving) offensive fouls through eight preseason games:

CHARGES TAKEN
6: Kelly Olynyk
5: Jared Sullinger, Jeff Green, Kris Humphries, Gerald Wallace
2: MarShon Brooks
1: Avery Bradley, Phil Pressey, Jordan Crawford, Vitor Faverani, Kammron Taylor
* Team total: 33

CHARGES COMMITTED
5: Olynyk
3: Brandon Bass
2: Sullinger, Green
1: Courtney Lee, Brooks, Pressey, Faverani, Humphries, Wallace
* Team total: 15

Can Olynyk avoid those rookie whistles and give himself a real chance at competing for the 2013-14 Chargewatch crown? The preseason suggests quality balance and competition in the quest for this year's title.
