#Chargewatch: Preseason leaderboard

10/26/2013

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.
