Why Dennis Rodman was the greatest player of all time
I stumbled upon this when I was thinking about how Drummond and Ctrl-V both suck at rebounding. I thought to myself, can you teach rebounding? How would you teach rebounding? I figured a good place to look would be to check out the greatest rebounders and look at their technique. Rodman came into mind so to Google I went. After watching his famous 34 rebound game, it became apparent to me, Rodman never boxed out. He would stay near the elbow and charge in from behind, he would be on the baseline opposite the shooter, but, most importantly, he would be ready 5 seconds before a shot was put up.
So after being confused on whether Rodman could do this in the modern era and whether there was some method to his madness, I did some further searching and found this stats page. I'll let you guys check it out.
http://skepticalsports.com/?page_id=1222Drummond doesn't box out. Could he copy Rodman's technique and be successful that way?
Can we teach our big men how to box out? Or is it some skill you come out of the womb with?
Did that game start at 3pm?
Where will Sessions go?
