                Absolutely ridiculous that Jordan couldn't set his ego aside to come to this man's retirement ceremony. A main reason he has 3 more rings. Dennis put his pride and everything else aside to come to Jordans because he understood what it meant and respected Michael and the game of basketball.

                Shame on you, MJ.

                                                        Dennis Rodman everthing you said is so real and applaud you for that. Struck a cord to a lot of people more than you imagine. You’re unique flair gave the NBA color but undeniably noone can beat your tough game. I remember watching the bulls not just for MJ and Pippet but wanting to see what your hair style and color is gonna be. 😁

I'll never forget this story, I live in the chicagoland area and he was in the area for some reason and a family friend saw Dennis at a casino or bar and went up to him and said "Wow I thought you'd be taller" and Dennis just turned and lowered his sunglasses and said "yeah but I'm in the hall of fame, bitch" and there was nothing the family friend could have said after that. xD

They worked together so well. I truly stopped watching basketball after Jordan left. Watching Scotty in Houston just didn't fit. Kerr was gone. Rodman to LA. Sad. I didn't like Kobe very much for reasons but seeing now this current day basketball, i respect and like him much more. He needs to be mentioned more when talking about who the 2,3.4.5 greatest of all times (Jordan being the GOAT) Ill take Kobe all day over lebron and Jordan for sure over all of them. Dennis was a workhorse. I know Dennis personally pretty well. I would hang out , party , talk at his bar in Newport years back . He is exactly what you see. He is a chill guy. I would see him riding his bike down Newport at 3am when i was at a 7/11 and he was as happy as anything can be. Good heart, he really does have a good heart.

Even though I was shocked after some of the statements he's made, I was only shocked because I forgot that he is a human being who happens to be one of the most honest celebrities in the NBA. So God bless him, his children and their mother, his mother, and his friends.
