Teach him how to rebound and box out. There are plenty of guys in the NBA who can grab boards and play D but can't hit a shot to save their lives.
Dennis Rodman was probably the greatest rebounder the NBA has ever seen but the guy couldn't hit a shot to save his life. Unfortunately, no one ever got recognized for grabbing 20+ boards a game so he dyed his hair crazy colors. The guy was so good at calculating the angle of where the shot was going to go, he could actually tell where before the shot hit the rim/backboard. In some circles, he might have been a genius but because of his hair we all think he's an idiot.
