Reasons why I voted for Rodman...
Rodman has the top 7 rebounding percentages.
There were on average 60+ more rebounding opportunities per game during Chamberlain's time because of the faster pace and poor shooting.
Wilt averages 18.0 rebounds per 36 minutes. Bill Russell averaged 19.1 rebounds per 36. Russell actually grabbed more rebounds per minute so some can even argue that Russell was better. Of course, Wilt was able to play more minutes so that's something to take into consideration.
Meanwhile Rodman averages 14.9 rebounds per 36, and nobody really is in the conversation. The next best in his era is about 3 rpg away from that. This "era" features Shaq, Malone, David Robinson, Hakeem, etc, and none of them were close.
