A rebound in Basketball is when a player gets the ball after a missed shot. Usually taller players will have an advantage when it comes to getting rebounds so they will average more rebounds per game. There are two types of rebounds, offensive and defensive. A defensive rebound is a rebound that you get after an opponent misses a shot and an offensive rebound is a rebound a player gets after one of his teammates misses a shot.
