NBA 2k11 Rebounding tips

I'm doing a new franchise but this time, I actually wanted to center the entire team around a big man. So Dwight Howard is my focal point offensively and defensively. Offensively, not a problem. 24-30 points easy if I don't pick up fouls. Rebounding though, only 9 a game so far.

My main question is this - How do you guys set up your settings (crash boards/fast break/etc) so you are actually close to NBA averages in franchise. Like every franchise I play, I play 9 minute quarters on Superstar and get like 30 rebounds as a team.

Any tips to make it more realistic so my team averages like 40-50 a game cuz I'm trying to get Dwight to win both defensive player and MVP lol/

I know. I try my best on that but lets be honest, that game makes so crazy shots that wouldn't happen in real life lol. Like 5 seconds left and Anderson Varejo gets the ball, holds the ball, and then shoots a 15 footer when you up and try to make a block and he makes it! lol

I was just saying how someone keeps their coaching settings because my crash boards in at like an 80 and I still can't get my entire team to crash boards. I was looking if someone could explain how they kept their settings though but thanks for the suggestion Taylor

1. BOX OUT 2. Jump when the


2. Jump when the ball starts falling, not when you or the CPU just released the shot

3. LT+X for Tip Slam

4. Play 2-3 zone

5. Always make sure your whole team boxes out

I play man for most of the shot clock but if I feel a shot is going to go up I switch to zone quickly. Work on timing your jumps when the shot goes up. I am not the best at it, because just being anxious I jump too just before the ball touches rim, sometimes that gives me an advantage and I can snatch it, but if you wait til the ball hits the rim, then jump, Dwight should be able to pick up some good offensive boards.

Block a lot

Personnaly, with howard in my team, i could block 2 or 3 times a night in superstar level. So try to focuse when the player is shooting to block him with howard. To have more rebound it's simpe: you need to secure the rebound, and allow no easy shot. You need to constantly be sure that the shooter will be in difficulty.
