PGC Fast Break: Rodman Rebounding

This week’s drill from PGC Basketball gives play­ers the chance to pol­ish their own one-hand­ed rebounds.

In a per­fect world, play­ers would always grab a rebound with two hands. But that’s not the world we live in. Plenty of sit­u­a­tions call for an ath­lete to attack a missed shot with one hand – a skill NBA Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman per­fect­ed over the course of his career.

This week’s drill from PGC Basketball gives play­ers the chance to pol­ish their own one-hand­ed rebounds.

Rodman Rebounding

In this two-per­son drill, ath­letes will work on both sides of the ball. As a defend­er, the focus is on giv­ing great con­tact to their offen­sive part­ner. When it’s time to work on offense, play­ers should focus on the following:

  • Keeping hands free
  • Gaining pos­ses­sion of the ball with one hand – and imme­di­ate­ly secur­ing with both hands
  • Finishing the offen­sive putback

Not only will ath­letes improve their abil­i­ty to secure rebounds in game-like con­di­tions, they’ll become bet­ter fin­ish­ers around the rim.
