How To: Get Love From Your Teammates Try this: You get all the rebounds and let them get all the baskets, a la BEN WALLACE

Who doesn't want to play alongside someone who is hell-bent on
retrieving the ball and then nearly as eager to dish it off? Here
are last season's league leaders in RPS--rebounds per shot
attempt (minimum of 24 minutes per game and 400 rebounds). Not
surprisingly, the man with the highest RPS is Pistons power
forward Ben Wallace, the epitome of a low-maintenance
player. --David Sabino
