Gerald Wallace is leading the NBA in rebounds, and says he can continue that pace

Right now, Gerald Wallace is leading the NBA in rebounds per game, with 13.8. He seems to think that he'll have no trouble keeping up that pace for the rest of the year, saying that he has a big man's mentality, and that's all it takes, as long as he stays healthy.

"Why not? God willing, if I stay healthy, I think I can. Up until I got into 10th or 11th grade, I was a big. I know how bigs think. I'm used to playing with my back to the basket and banging."

Does he have a legitimate chance to even come close to maintaining that pace? I tend to doubt it, especially as the big men on his team continue to get back to 100%. But if Wallace can pull it off, I'd be very impressed.
