Thanks for pointing out what I was trying to do with numbers. The 2 are comperable in just about every area. If milsap was a all-nba player I would be the first to dump splitter for him. I'd dump splitter for Marc Gasol, Dwight Howard, Blake Griffin, Kevin Love! Shoot maybe even David Lee. But Milsap has been in the league 7 years and Has never averaged 9 rebounds per game. His stats show that he has regressed the past 3 years. Meanwhile Tiago has gotten better all 3 years he's been in the league. That's why I'd take Tiago over Milsap.
