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.

The highest average of basketball is 14 points a game for a benched player.
If a player of the offensive team rebounds a missed shot and scores in the earned new possession, it is called a follow-up shot.

Generally its for total rebounds ( offensive + defensive) That's incorrect. It stands for total(as in rebounds, points, shot attempts/made...etc) depending on the type of stat (player or team), the category you're looking at, and the layout of the stat sheet. On some stat sheets, I think I remember it meaning turnover total, but I'm not sure as of now.

That means a player has gotten 10 or more in two statistical categories. If a player scores 21 points and grabs 13 rebounds, it is called a double double. If a player grabs 12 rebounds and gets 11 assists, it is called a double double. Furthermore, if a player gets 10 or more in three statistical categories, it is called a triple double. If a player scores 18 points, grabs 11 rebounds, and gets 10 assists it is called a triple double.

The highest batting average a player can have is 1.000, which would mean that he would have a hit every time he is at bat. Of course, this wouldn't count the times the batter may have been walked, since walks aren't considered "at-bats" and don't reflect upon his batting average.
