Dennis Keith Rodman (born May 13, 1961) is an American retired professional basketball player best known for his fierce defensive and rebounding ability, leading the National Basketball Association in rebounds per game for a record seven consecutive years and earning NBA All-Defensive First Team honors seven times, along with five NBA Championships (1989, 1990, 1996, 1997, 1998).

Biography

Pre-NBA and amateur career

Rodman, who was born in Trenton, New Jersey and grew up in the Oak Cliff section of Dallas, Texas, was on the basketball team only briefly at South Oak Cliff High School, where he played under future Texas A&M coach Gary Blair.[1] Having been dropped from the football team the previous autumn, the then-5'6" player quit the basketball team halfway through his first season due to frustration at not being put into the game; Rodman graduated in 1979 without playing further in either sport. While working as an overnight janitor at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport, he grew from under 6 feet tall to 6'8"[2] and became a force to reckon with on the playgrounds. A family friend tipped off the head coach of Cooke County College in Gainesville, Texas about his talents and he went on to play a year for the school's team.[3] After his short stint (failed out) at Cooke County College in Gainesville, Texas, he played for Southeastern Oklahoma State University, an NAIA school. There, Rodman was a three-time NAIA All-American and led the NAIA in rebounding in both the 1984-85 and 1985-86 seasons. He also averaged over 25 points per game for his three-year NAIA career.[4] Nickname: Location of Trenton inside of Mercer County Coordinates: , Country State County Mercer Incorporated November 13, 1792 Government  - Mayor Douglas H.

Detroit Pistons

After a strong NBA pre-draft workout, the Detroit Pistons took sufficient notice of him to select him in the second round of the 1986 NBA Draft. Earlier in the same draft, they selected John Salley. At that time, the Pistons were an up-and-coming team led by Isiah Thomas at point guard, Joe Dumars at shooting guard, Adrian Dantley at small forward, and Bill Laimbeer at center. They had notable role players in Vinnie Johnson, and Rick Mahorn. Rodman's intensity was a perfect fit for a team known for its rough style of play and tenacious defense. The Pistons were knocked out of the playoffs in the 1987 Eastern Conference Finals by their nemesis Boston Celtics, although Rodman did a decent job of guarding their star player, Larry Bird. Rodman made headlines after the series by insinuating that Bird was overrated because he was white, a comment that Isiah Thomas echoed.

In 1988, Rodman seemed to show even more star potential, crashing the boards more and defending better than before. In 1989, he was finally recognized for his work by being named Defensive Player of the Year, the first of his two consecutive DPOY awards. He finished second to Laimbeer in rebounding on the team, and Rodman helped the Pistons put away the young Chicago Bulls for the second straight year as they won their first NBA championship. The following year was almost identical, with the Pistons beating the Bulls in the Eastern Conference finals again, winning their second straight championship, and Rodman again winning Defensive Player of the Year honors.

Rodman led the Pistons with 12.5 rebounds per game in 1991. In 1992, Rodman improved significantly, averaging over eighteen per game as he won the first of seven straight rebounding titles. In a March 1992 game, he totaled a career high 34 total rebounds.[5] Rodman's second best rebounding performance was in 1993, in his last season with the Pistons.

San Antonio Spurs

In San Antonio, Rodman continued his rebounding expertise and allowed center David Robinson to focus more on scoring; Robinson won the scoring title. It marked the first time that teammates won both the scoring and rebounding title. The following season, Rodman helped San Antonio to their then-franchise best win-loss record of 62-20, and they made it to the Western Conference finals. However, his increasingly erratic off-court life, including a brief but heavily-publicized relationship with singer Madonna, and on-court antics, such as questioning the Spurs' coach and superstar David Robinson's basketball heart and starting on-court arguments resulted in him being released from his contract after only two years with the Spurs.

Chicago Bulls

Rodman upset at Referee.

Prior the 1995-96 season, Rodman was traded to the Chicago Bulls for center Will Perdue and cash considerations, in order to fill a large void at power forward left by Horace Grant, who left the Bulls prior to the 1994-95 season. In his book "Bad As I Wanna Be", Rodman stated that Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen had to approve the trade before it took place. Rodman chose the number 91 (9+1=10 according to Rodman for why he chose that number) for his jersey since the number 10 jersey was retired by the Bulls after the 1994-95 season in honor of Bob Love. He also said that 9 and 1 are the numbers you dial in case of an emergency. The Bulls, with Rodman, improved 25 games from the previous year's 47-35 record to an NBA record 72-10 regular season finish in the 1995-96 season.

Later, in the playoffs, the Bulls easily made their way to the NBA Finals and the NBA championship. Rodman, Jordan, and Scottie Pippen all made the All-Defensive First Team, the first time three players from the same team made it on the first team. Rodman led the league in rebounding for the fifth straight year, and Jordan won the scoring title, the second time that teammates had led the league in scoring and rebounding. They would repeat in 1997 and 1998 as the team three-peated for the second time in the decade. Rodman became a fan favorite for his behavior and would also take his jersey off and toss it to a fan if he fouled out or was ejected from a game.

Rodman was known for his shocking behavior on the court, including his head butt of referee Ted Bernhardt[6] during a game in New Jersey on March 16, 1996. On January 15, 1997, Rodman was involved in another notorious incident during a game against the Minnesota Timberwolves. After tripping over cameraman Eugene Amos, Rodman kicked Amos in the groin.[7] Though he was not assessed a technical foul at the time, Rodman ultimately paid Amos a $200,000 settlement, and the league suspended Rodman for 11 games. Despite his behavior, Rodman was for the most part kept under control by coach Phil Jackson and Michael Jordan during his time in Chicago.

Rodman left Chicago after the 1997-98 season as the Bulls started a massive rebuilding phase. He also finished his last major season, as he would only have brief stints with the Los Angeles Lakers and finally ending his career by going home to the Dallas Mavericks. Rodman was the premier rebounder of the 1990s with seven straight titles, and matched up defensively with players ranging from Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, Magic Johnson, and Larry Bird, to Shaquille O'Neal, Alonzo Mourning, Shawn Kemp, Karl Malone, and Charles Barkley. One of his most impressive feats came during the 1996 Eastern Conference Finals against the Orlando Magic, when Rodman shut down former Bull 6 ft 10 in (2.08 m), 235 lb (107 kg/16.8 st) Horace Grant and helped contain the 7 ft 1 in (2.16 m), 330 lb (150 kg/24 st) O'Neal, key to the Bulls' eventual sweep of the defending Eastern Conference champs. He also was credited for being able to shut down Karl Malone during both Finals series against the Utah Jazz and for breaking down Shawn Kemp and center Frank Brickowski psychologically during the Finals series against the Seattle Supersonics. Perhaps Rodman's most impressive feat came in the 1996 NBA Finals, when he pulled down 11 offensive rebounds in both Games 2 and 6 against the Seattle SuperSonics, tying the all-time Finals record.

Rodman playing for Torpan Pojat.

After his stint with the Bulls, Rodman became a journeyman. He briefly joined the Los Angeles Lakers (wearing number 73) and helped them to a 17-6 record while averaging 11.2 rebounds per game. However, when Rodman went on a leave of absence for personal reasons the Lakers released him soon after. The following season, Dallas Maverick owner Mark Cuban signed Rodman. Over 12 games for Dallas, Rodman averaged 14.3 rebounds per game. However, the Mavericks still had little success and Rodman was released after some critical comments of Cuban. After a long break, he played for the Long Beach Jam of the newly-formed American Basketball Association during the 2003-04 season, with hopes of being called up to the NBA midseason. In the 2004-05 season, Rodman signed with the ABA's Orange County Crush and the following season with the league's Tijuana Dragons. He also competed in three games for the Brighton Bears of the British Basketball League and one game for Torpan Pojat of the Finland's basketball league, Korisliiga after leaving the NBA.

Rodman wrestled a few matches for World Championship Wrestling and was a member of the nWo with Hulk Hogan, a friend of his.

He skipped practice with the Bulls to wrestle, infuriating both basketball fans, and Head Coach Phil Jackson. As a result he was fined by the NBA for skipping practice. At Bash at the Beach '98, Rodman & Hogan defeated Karl Malone & Diamond Dallas Page. He came back in the summer of 1999 to feud with Randy Savage. They had a match at Road Wild 1999 in which Savage shoved Rodman in a portable toilet and eventually won the match.

Rodman has appeared in a number of reality TV series. In January 2006, Rodman appeared on Celebrity Big Brother in the UK. He entered the house at approximately 22:00 on January 5 and was shocked to find fellow American and friend Traci Bingham in the house. While on the show he became known for his regular use of the phrase, "I don't give a shit!". He took into the house with him a pack of "extra large" condoms and did not pack any underwear. During one of the tasks in the house where the housemates had to rank themselves and the others in order of fame, Rodman was put second to the British former comedian and comic quiz show host Michael Barrymore. He disagreed with this, saying that he should have been ranked highest. However, Rodman was not a well-known figure in the UK at the time. He struck up an unlikely romantic liaison with Faria Alam, but it was short-lived and ended after Alam was voted out. Whilst on the show Rodman also claimed that he has had sex with nearly 2000 women. Rodman was the fifth housemate evicted on a double eviction night with George Galloway. Rodman annoyed producers of the show and presenter Davina McCall, by refusing to remove his baseball cap and sunglasses at the post eviction interview, and by not directly answering questions on his opinions of other housemates. Rodman was subsequently banned from the reunion party on the following Sunday, although he recorded a message to his former housemates.

Trivia

  • Rodman, Ron Harper, and Robert Horry are the only three players to win multiple consecutive NBA Championships with two different teams.[16]
  • His nicknames include "Dennis the Menace", "Rodzilla", "D-Rod", "Rod the Bod", "The Red Mound of Rebound and more commonly known as "Worm", given to him by his mother for wriggling around while playing pinball. In WCW, Hulk Hogan would call him "The Real Hot Rod" as a taunt toward rival wrestler "Rowdy" Roddy Piper, who long had the nickname "Hot Rod".
  • Key to Rodman's success as a rebounder in basketball was his ability to tip the ball repeatedly if he was challenged. Rodman has previously stated he watched and studied the shooting patterns of athletes he played against. He also studied the way the basketball would react when it hit the rim after a miss. By studying this, Rodman learned where the ball would commonly fall, giving him the initial edge on grabbing the rebound.
