Carmelo Anthony says Thunder players are “cool” with Russell Westbrook stealing rebounds.

At practice on Tuesday, Carmelo confirmed that Westbrook indeed “steals”  boards from his teammates: “He steals (rebounds). He steals” (starting at 0:41):

You mentioned stealing rebounds, you kind of joked about it—

Carmelo: “He steals. He steals.” [Laughs]

How does the team feel about that?

Carmelo: “We got a defensive rebound. I don’t think nobody thinks twice about that. As long as we get the rebound, I don’t think we worry about that.

“Individually, we’re not like, ‘Damn, I got to get this rebound. I got to rebound more.’ As long as we get the rebound, we all cool with that.”
