# Thread: average 20 and 10 for his career

1. ## average 20 and 10 for his career

Dear all,

What is the meaning of the expression "average 20 and 10 for his career" in the field of sport?

Context: "He hasn't won a championship ring, but he was the no. 1 pick, averaging 20 and 10 for his career."

I found the expression in many contexts in Google but I couldn't guess the meaning.

Thanks a lot

Telling us what sport this is might help. If he's a baseball pitcher, that would be wins and losses for games he pitched, per season. A 20-game winner is a very good pitcher.

Have you ever watched basketball? A player shoots the ball, attempting to make it travel into the metal "hoop" in order to score points. If he misses, the other players attempt to gain possession of the ball as it bounces off of the hoop or the backboard.

If a player does get the ball when it rebounds, he is credited in his statistics with one "rebound."

The entire phrase means that this player, on average, scores 20 points and 10 rebounds per game. This is over all the years of his career.
