    Rodman and Pop were an odd fit. Playing wise, Rodman was everything Pop could have wanted. Personality wise, he was everything Pop was against. It's not often that you get a player like that. Generally, flashy play comes with a flashy personality. Ol' Denny was a real enigma.

    Rodman freelancing for rebounds and not guarding his man.

    Rodman says:
    And I the same guy we won 68 damn games? Am I that same guy, but you guys don’t like me?” Rodman said. “So I said, ‘OK, trade me,'” he said. “They traded me to the damn Bulls.”
    Yeah they traded you to the damn Bulls with MJ, Scottie, Kukoc, Kerr and Harper and Phil Jackson as your head coach and you won 3 NBA titles, it worked out I'd say. Damn is a little harsh word to use after all that success.

    Rodman on the Bulls was a perfect fit. Why the fuck you would want to make a team like MJ's Bulls stronger?

    I agree. I don't get Dennis still holding on to his hatred for the Spurs. SA is the place where he became an icon before he got to SA he was just a normal guy that nobody cared about. It was in SA where he became the guy with the colored hair and that tattoos which resulted in him becoming a celebrity. The Spurs trading him to the bulls allowed him to win 3 more titles and catapulted him to being a household name. Spurs also benefited in the long run by ending up with Duncan. This is a situation where both sides were much better off after being split. Dennis holding on to his hatred shows that he's petty.

    Shawn Marion was a similar player to Rodman, the closest we had since him but now he's gone too

    Rodman continues being an "against the grain" personality...

    I was in Miami (technically in Aventura) in 2015 for a work conference... Rodman showed up to the hotel where the conference was held (Turnberry Isle), went directly to the bar at 11:00 AM (and proceeded to drink away)... He literally reeked of piss and booze. But none of the employees dared to say anything or cause a commotion.

    Rodman was a bullshitter. He said he didn't drink at all, but he was a drunk.

    He said money didn't matter to him, but it was the only thing that mattered -- the reason that he left.

    He was a great (although incomplete) basketball player. Give him credit for that, but not much more.

    Going against the grain is so "with the grain" these days. Rodman was a pioneer. Never see another NBA bruiser like him show up in a wedding dress.

    Let's give Draymond a chance. Once he feels a little more comfortable wearing a dress indoors I'm sure he'll venture out eventually.

    Dating Madonna at that time helped build his celebrity status.

    If by stat-padding you mean closing out the 4th quarter of G5 in the 2014 Finals so they didn't choke away another 4th quarter double-digit lead like the year before, then I guess so. Or if you mean dropping 34 in G7 against the Mavs, yah. Or maybe you mean him dropping 27 on Conley in G6 this year on 79% shooting to close out the series. Or countless other clutch performances in the playoffs.

    Spurs were a more disciplinary team back then. They let Rod Strickland walk even though he was one of the best point guards in the league because he was also a head case that didn't buy into a military team in a military town. They let a lot of talent walk bc of their baggage. But Pop struck gold when he got good character guys like Tim, Manu, Tony (aside from sexting teammates' wives), and Bowen...talented players with good character. Baggage guys even now don't last long. Sure the Rodman trade was lopsided (though Perdue was an underrated player), but Spurs have won the right way with good guys, which counts for something.

    Pop really shitty at reading the room. You don't take on DR unless you're willing to have tolerance.

    He doesn't get Madonna's attention if he doesn't dye his hair. He dyed his hair in SA randomly when he saw a barber who gave him that idea. So SA played a huge role in him becoming a celebrity.

    "Outspoken" DR was hardly stable. I still blame Pop though, for not accepting that DR had an IQ of about 60 and the emotional stability of a rabid animal.

    As I recall, didn't the Spurs literally let Strickland walk, as in they got nothing for him? He was a good fit here (didn't he do something moronic like get injured in a club fight during the playoffs?), but he had trade value.

    Rodman retired with 5 rings. That's not an accident. He was a special player.
    It might be said that other coaches were able to harness Rodman's talents, whilst Pop's ego came first...
