Not everyone could deal with Dennis Rodman, both on and off the basketball court. Rodman got into real fights in Detroit, he wasn’t particularly calm in San Antonio either.
While with the Bulls, he infamously head-butted an official and kicked a cameraman in the groin. He also nearly fought Shaquille O’Neal and Karl Malone.
And yet, Rodman gave the game it all, with intensity, relentlessness and passion.
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. Rodman is also in the Basketball Hall of Fame.
