Kenneth Faried = Next Dennis Rodman?

Kenneth Faried = Next Dennis Rodman?

Postby The Rock on Sat Nov 10, 2012 11:00 pm

If I had to pick someone in the league today who can come closest to the worm it would be this guy.

Last year as a rookie: 22 mins, 10 pts, 7.7 rebs, 1 block
This year : 26 mins, 13.2 points, 10 rebs

He can guard multiple positions including swing players. Doesn't have much of a post game but can knock down an open 15 footer with some regularity. This guy's rebounding, energy and defense is off the charts. Non stop motor

We like Jordan Hill's energy, but man Faried is Hill on speed, with much better overall game. Every rebound opportunity he seems to be right in the middle of...

Faried is undersized, has an awesome motor and has a terrific knack for rebounds ... and it is where comparaisons with Rodman should stop ... overall D and B-Ball IQ of Faried are thousand miles away from Dennis ones...

I'm very confused by the " can knock down an open 15 footer" part ... he barely shot outside the paint and rightfully so

Hill is just as good when it comes to rebounding IMO. Offensively I'll give the edge to Faried. Defensively it's a toss up because I don't recall Faried being an above average shot blocker.

I buy the comparison. I buy it!! Faried is a straight up BALLER that doesn't get much attention. But his athleticism and knack for the ball is pretty unique. He has way more offensive game than Rodman though...

He has a ways to go defensively to be on Rodman's level but I like his game overall and he's just getting started. I love his energy and enthusiasm. He is the ultimately hustle guy. He definitely gave us fits last year in the playoffs.

No, Rodman couldn't score to save his life. Plus the other thing about Rodman is that he was a little colorful to say the least.

Not true and you must not have seen Worm in his Detroit days. He shot over 50% and averaged about 9ppg off the bench as a 7th man. It wasn't until Chicago that his offense completely disappeared.

i never knew Faried was the NCAA's all time rebounding leader

pretty crazy he fell so low in the draft, i've watched a couple Nuggets game this year and i never knew he was that good. Dude is a one man force.

Rodman averaged over 18 rebounds a game more then 1 time. He also played GREAT defense and was an above average passer.

Until Faried can equal Rodman in at LEAST ONE of the stats mentioned above, I don't think this comparison has any merit.

/\ generational comparisons like this are always hard/impossible, in Rodman's day there weren't anywhere near as many skywalkers as there are today, players used to play above the rim, now they're playing above the box, and I'm not trying to discredit Rodman's accomplishments or anything, but I don't think you're going to see anyone averaging 18rpg any time soon for reasons unrelated to individual player talent.

Did you get a chance to watch him play?

In the Late 90's people were playing "above the box". I agree if you were referring to the late 80's though...But he still put up 14reb per in the late 90's when he was out of his prime. Not many people averaged 18per in that era. I actually think rebounding was DOWN compared to now. Less possessions. If Rodman played today, I think he would rebound the same amount if not more.

I disagree here...Honestly as old as rodman right now I still think he could get in a nba game and grab 10 rebs. Now I don't think he could last a whole nba season but just a handful of games he still be effective. I remember maybe it was like 2-3 years back he played in a eurpoean championship game and grabbed 15 rebs lol.

Phil jackson who has played michael, scottie, kobe, shaq etc when asked who is the most athletic player he has played against he said rodman. For example ben wallace was putting up 12-15 rebs a game for a few seasons and ben was NOWHERE and I can't stress that enough nowhere near the athlete rodman was.
