More Than a Game Above the Rim Duane Martin, Tupac Shakur, Leon. He Got Game Edit Cast Cast overview, first billed only: Coach Scarpelli Loretta Devine Miss Mary Glynn Turman Coach Powell Monica Calhoun Young Earl Michael Ralph Dean Memminger Nicole Ari Parker Great rebounders tend to be tall and strong.

Because height is so important, most rebounds are made by centers and power forwards , who are often positioned closer to the basket. The lack of height can sometimes be compensated by the strength to box out taller players away from the ball to capture the rebound. For example, Charles Barkley once led the league in rebounding despite usually being much shorter than his counterparts. Also, some shorter guards can be excellent rebounders as well such as point guard Jason Kidd who led the New Jersey Nets in rebounding for several years.

Great rebounders must also have a keen sense of timing and positioning. Great leaping ability is an important asset, but not absolutely necessary. Players such as Larry Bird and Moses Malone were excellent rebounders, but were never known for their leaping ability.

Bird has stated, "Most rebounds are taken below the rim. That's where I get mine". Players position themselves in the best spot to get the rebound by "boxing out"—i.

The action can also be called "blocking out". A team can be boxed out by several players using this technique to stop the other team from rebounding. Because fighting for a rebound can be very physical, rebounding is often regarded as "grunt work" or a "hustle" play.

Overly aggressive boxing out or preventing being boxed out can lead to personal fouls. Statistics of a player's "rebounds per game" or "rebounding average" measure a player's rebounding effectiveness by dividing the number of rebounds by the number of games played. Rebound rates go beyond raw rebound totals by taking into account external factors, such as the number of shots taken in games and the percentage of those shots that are made the total number of rebounds available.

Rebounds were first officially recorded in the NBA during the —51 season. Both offensive and defensive rebounds were first officially recorded in the NBA during the —74 season and ABA during the —68 season.
