During his time with the Detroit Pistons, San Antonio Spurs and, of course, the Chicago Bulls, Rodman was known for his larger-than-life attitude and personality and eccentric style.
Some things just never change.
Rodman is legendary 😂📸
— NBA TV (@NBATV) February 22, 2022
He was part of last weekend’s All-Star Game celebrations, specifically because he’s a member of the NBA 75 list, which compiles the best players to ever play the game.
It was great to see him again and it was also great to learn that he’s still the same guy he’s always been.
The biggest crime an NBA fan could make would be to think that Rodman was just a showy guy and not an expertly skilled and amazing basketball player.
He was one of the best players in the league when he was in the NBA.
Throughout his career, Rodman reached many heights.
He was a five-time champion, with the Pistons and Bulls.
Additionally, he was a two-time All-Star and two-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year.
He was also selected for the All-NBA Third-Team twice and was the league’s rebounding champion seven times.
Many people have said that Michael Jordan and his legendary Bulls teams wouldn’t have had the success they did if it weren’t for Rodman.
Sure enough, his presence on the floor and especially his defensive prowess was second-to-none.
There have been few players like Rodman since he retired from the league in 2000.
Yes, he was a colorful character but, above all else, he was a phenomenal basketball pro.
