San Antonio Spurs — Trading Away Dennis Rodman
Long before he joined up with the Chicago Bulls for their latter three-peat, Dennis “the Worm” Rodman was a rebounding and one-on-one defensive savant as a member of the San Antonio Spurs, joining future Hall of Fame center David Robinson. While he promised to keep a low profile when arriving in San Antonio, unsurprisingly, that didn’t last very long.
Between his prickly personality, on-court antics, and being vanquished by Hakeem Olajuwon in the 1995 NBA Playoffs, the Spurs had enough, trading him to the Chicago Bulls for center Will Perdue. The latter did absolutely nothing for the Spurs of note, while Rodman served as the on-court pest and rebounder extraordinaire alongside Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen, winning three championships.
