WATCH: Dennis Rodman’s deadly defense on Larry Bird

rodman-dogWhen he was a Piston, future Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman was known for his tenacious defense.

Smaller than a typical power forward in his earlier years, Rodman was often tasked to defend the game’s best players, like Michael Jordan or Larry Bird.

Rodman was a two-time All-Star, and playing in 911 career NBA games, he averaged 7.3 points and 13.1 rebounds per game.

He won two NBA rings as member of the Detroit Pistons in 89 and 90, and later won three more rings with the Chicago Bulls in 96, 97 and 98.

Speaking of Larry Bird, here below is an example of Rodman’s tight defense:
