Re: In your opinion, how important are offense/defense/rebounding?
It depends on the talent you have. Generally I would like to see the team built around a good rim protector and a guard who can both score and create. i'd emphasize ball movement for easy shots and free throw shooting.
On defense I'd emphasize rotations , hedging on pick and rolls, maybe full court press from any guard that's not elite offensively.Then once the shot is up people just need to get position or box out.
Defensive Rebounding is very important, but it's more about the team boxing out getting into good persons than any one person. If you have a great rim protector or post defender, then he should be getting rebounds.
For everyone else it's about getting ideal spacing and boxing out to give yourself the best chance.
