Westbrook’s triple doubles included a ton of free-throw rebounds. He actually lead the league last season. NBA players often let their opponents get free-throw rebounds. There’s an interesting article about the practice, here: https://bleacherreport.com/articles/...take-plays-off

This reminds me I heard another basketball analyst say that it was not necessarily a good thing for a point guard to average 10+ rebounds. You want your point guard ready to leak out early from the defensive end, to get a fast break going, not hanging around the glass trying to rebound.
