Dennis Rodman was easily one of the wildest characters in NBA history.
Dennis Rodman has been one of the key figures in ESPN's Michael Jordan docuseries, "The Last Dance." Of course, Rodman is one of the greatest rebounders in NBA history and he was known for being a physical player on the court, and an absolute wild card off of it. In Episode 9 of the series, which aired last night, we got some insight into one story that truly had fans on Twitter rolling in collective laughter.
Let's set the scene. It's 1998 and the Chicago Bulls have just won Game 3 of the NBA Finals against the Utah Jazz, by a score of 96-54. Instead of going back home and resting before practice the next day, Rodman gets on a flight and shows up at a WWE event where he is wrestling as a member of the NWO. Yes, you read that correctly. Rodman actually left the Bulls in the middle of the Finals just so he could hang out with Hulk Hogan.
While Twitter found this to be very funny, his teammates and coach sure didn't. Regardless, Rodman eventually found his way back to Chicago and helped the team close out the series, en-route to MJ's sixth championship in just eight years.
Rodman certainly helped add some layers to this documentary and we thank him immensely for it.
