Let us work on the offensive portion of rebounding. A couple of things you need to realize to become a good offensive rebounder. First of all, you always have to move, never allow yourself to be pinned, always move and that will help to prevent that. If a good defensive rebounder makes contact with you, never fight the contact.
Always move away from where the contact came. So if you have to spin on a pivot, do that, but never try to fight over the top of a defender that is where you always get in trouble. The key to being a good offensive rebounder is to be able to move and move quickly and not worry about winning the battle of who has got position and who is being more physical so that you can win the war, which is to get the rebound.
The best way to get the rebound offensively is to always stay on the move, never let the guy get contact within more than half a second. The first drill that we will give you to work on this is called V-cut drill. We will show with two players, and then we will use a chair so you can get the habit of doing it without anyone to practice with. The V-cut, the defender will see a shot go up. The offensive player will take a cut to the middle. The defender is looking at him to make sure he has got him, he steps that way and then he looks for the ball.
Now, the offensive player just pushes off, hooks his foot around, drops his butt and he goes up for the board. So it is a V step or a V-cut drill. Let us try that with a shot. [Music playing] Point to man and the ball, shot goes up, put it up, put it up. Good, again, point to the man and the ball, turn the box. A lot of defensive players, put it up, game situation. A lot of defensive players may box out, but they will forget to maintain contact, that is to your advantage. There are very few rebounders in the game that maintain good contact.
