This past week Minnesota Timberwolves power forward Kevin Love pulled down 31 rebounds against the Knicks. Love has a knack for going after the ball.
Day 76 – Chasing Down Loose Balls
How hard do you go after loose balls?
Do you pursue rebounds? Rebounding the ball well determines your ability to win or lose ballgames. Do not give up on second and third shots. Get every rebound possible…
If you don’t go very hard, you better change your ways.
Here’s New York Post basketball writer Pete Vecsey on Love and his ‘love’ for chasing down loose-balls.
Here’s a quote from Love when he wrote an e-mail message as a high school player.
“I want to be a rebounder like Dennis Rodman. I want to get every rebound and bleep up everybody up on the boards.”
