There was really no one in NBA history quite like The Worm, and that’s probably for the best. Rodman is the single most dominant rebounder in league history and one of the best defenders the league has ever seen. But part of what made him so good defensively was that he was so physical and dirty on defense.
No one took away your personal space like Dennis Rodman. He got up into your grill and took away your oxygen and got into your head mentally. Rodman was the defender Lance Stephenson thinks he is, and you can bet The Worm did plenty more than blow in a dude’s ear in his day.
