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.
