I think Jefferson would be a beast regardless of the conference he played in. He has had 9 straight games of 10+ rebounds. Once the Celtics start winning, he will get his due. Until then, he will remain anonymous to rest of the league.
Everybody is riding Dwight Howard's jock, yet Jefferson is not that far behind him in production at the same age:
Dwight Howard: 16.8 pts, 12.6 rebounds, 2 blks AGE: 21
Al Jefferson: 12.9 pts, 9.8 rebounds, 1.5 blks AGE: 21 (and he was coming off the bench at the beginning of the season and even had his appendix removed)
