I started doing some excercises during that off-season just like I'm planning on doing now. Working out my complete legs with leg pressing and squats. It's more to help me with rebounding then dunking though.
And a last piece of advice, be carefull when doing jumping exercises etc. on the blacktop. You don't want to end up with shin splints or other injuries.
Ye i hope to make it, but rebouding is a small part of my game, but it should become a big part.
Because i am the tallest player on my team, getting the rebound should be my thing, my timing and possitioning isnt very well at the moment, but im working on it.
