Rebounding is about heart and desire
 
ďIts all about heart,Ē Hickson said of rebounding. ďItís all about passion and desire. Itís not really technique, because you never really know where the ball is going to bounce. Itís about who wants it more. When guys realize that you want to get every rebound, they donít even try to get the rebound. Even the guys on the same team. When they realize that you are going to rebound at a high rate, they ... get out of your way.Ē

He's dumb. Moses Malone studied his own teammates' jumpshots so that he could tell how they miss.

If anything it's all about intuition, you don't know where the ball is going but some people are in the right place at the right time more often than others and it's all about game-sense... obviously you have to try hard as well but that's a given in everything.

He's not dumb what he says is true for the most part. Charles Barkley one of the leagues greatest undersized rebounders said a similar thing in many interviews before.

any time anyone says "it's not really technique," they're wrong.
