Having a big man who can pull down those rebounds is vital to any top team.

Defensively, it will prevent the opponent from scoring, whilst being good on the offensive glass can help towards those all-important second-chance points.

Here are the best on the glass in 2K21.

Defensive Rebounders

Each player in 2K21 is given a rebound rating in two areas, both offensive and defensive.

We'll start with the latter. Here are the top defensive rebounders in 2K21.
