In my experience as a 6'7" PF, there isn't a whole lot you can do if you're competing for a rebound with a 7 footer. Even with HOF box, the big man IS getting that board. Because I can tell you that he has HOF on fucking everything defense, and his rebounding is maxed out at 99. He's going to shit on your HOF box.
But...worm is different. I've been boxed out by a big dude, and magically got in front of him at the last second. 3-5 times he's STILL going to get the rebound (fucking 2K, man), but at least now I'm in position and have a chance.
Yea that estimation is correct , the first few badges are much quicker but those ending badges like 15+ take around 20k when I was getting 28k badge points I was getting about 1.7 badges a game. Now with the cut its not even one badge a game
