What are your thoughts on that ISH?
For me, I don't know the right word, but let's start with -- bizarre & weird. lol
For me that tells me you've got a good motor, instincts, and positioning. It gets said a lot, but jumping high does not necessarily make a good rebounder. It's but one piece of the puzzle. Rebounding is kind of like defense, in that a lot of folks don't always want to do what's required to be great at it.
