Allright, you both need to chill out here-- I'm asking you nicely to stop. If you got a personal problem with each other, take it up in PM.

You just ruined a perfectly good thread about Dennis Rodman here.

Let's bring it back to basketball discussion.

Definitely-- he wasn't too bulky either, which shows you he must ahve a had great strategy and skill in rebounding.

This guy grabbed 34 rebounds in one game (18 of them were offensive rebounds), that's not exactly the easiest thing to do.

He has also pulled down 23 defensive rebounds in a game

He deserves to be in the hall of fame

Definitely-- players should be known for what they did ON the COURT-- regardless of how the media makes them seem off the court. Rodman was one of the greatest rebounders ever.

Rodman should be in the Hall of Fame.

u guys might not believe this but the guy was smart too..i read in some ESPN article that he would study MJ;s shot so that he could almost tell exactly where the ball would ricochet to if he missed

he did that for most of his teammates to, and i think that is just remarkable

he definately deserves to be in the hall of fame, in my opinionhe is top 5 in reboundin of all time


also it wasnt just rebounds he was good at, he was a derek fisher type of hustler

hed grab loose balls like none other and he dedicated his body to the game

if you ignore all the hoopla and distractions sorrounding the worm, he is the greatest rebounder ever, and if there was ever an all time defensive team, he would definitely be on it. He was one of the greatest team players ever, he was reallly reallly unselfish, and all he wanted to do was win. Ask MJ, Scottie, Isiah Thomas, any of his old teammates, and they would agree. Rodman never cared about scoring, he just wanted to win. And his appearance is really what makes him so hated. Phil Jackson said tht Dennis Rodman is one of the most interesting people he has ever met, and i read in a book that after lotsa games. Rodman would go home turn out the lights, and listen to Vivaldi. I think Rodman is definitely not one of the people that should be representing the NBA, but he was definitely one of the great team players of all time.
