As a big man, keeping the basketball high after an offensive rebound that you will put right back up is a good habit to have. If you bring the basketball down around your waist, you allow smaller guards to get in there and potentially strip the basketball.
This basketball post move drill will help you practice the right fundamentals as well as work on your touch around the basket. Rebounding is a skill just like anything else in basketball, so you must spend the needed time doing basketball drills and training yourself to be a great rebounder.
