The NBA’s most unmanageable hotheads: Dennis Rodman

Welcome to another whoslamsharder series. This one will focus on NBA hotheads - the kind of players that are most likely to get T’d up, start brawls, have an extremely bad attitude, fly off the handle for no apparent reason etc. These guys make the NBA way more hilarious/entertaining.

I’m going to kick it off with Dennis Rodman, one of the NBA’s most memorable (read: crazy) players.

Rodman is remembered for many things - his hairdos, his girlfriends, that time he wore a wedding dress, his random professional wrestling career, the fact that he wrote a memoir called Bad As I Wanna Be …and (I guess) his defensive skills (two time NBA Defensive Player of the Year). He’ll also always be remembered as the guy who started a billion brawls a second.

Like during the 1988 conference finals versus the Celtics. Rodman got into a fight with Brad Lohaus, which instigated a full out brawl between the two teams:

And Rodman vs Shaq. Rodman fouls Shaq HARD and then Jordan and Pippen have to pull them apart:

And there was the time he headbutted a ref:

This guy is definitely a nut but I kind miss his antics. A rare bird, indeed.

It’s been a long time…shouldn’t have left you

After months of neglect, I’m bringing back whoslamsharder and with it more opinions about b-ball/NBA that really no one but me cares about.

Rasheed Wallace - King among men

So Sheed is the Detroit Piston’s new assistant coach! A good excuse to post about him and how amazing he is. Everyone knows that Sheed is the king of getting t’d up - in fact, if you type “Rasheed Wallace” into youtube, “technical foul” auto-completes.

Perhaps his most famous and hilarious trait is yelling “BALL DON’T LIE!” every time an opponent misses a foul shot. Here’s an example:

Only Sheed can get ejected for staring at a referee.

And let’s not forget about the infamous “towel incident”

Gonna miss this guy as a player! Glad he’s sticking around the NBA.

Super nintendo Chalmers


Woah, remember that time Bosh yelled at Mario “Super Nintendo” Chalmers? And Joakim Noah taunted them like a deranged baby clown?

Lebron also likes to yell at poor old Chalmers:

Miami Heat LeBron James yells at Mario Chalmers


Is this an angry head grab, or a heart-to-heart style head grab?

Nate Robinson - half man, half amazing

This playoff season, the world was reminded once again that Nate Robinson is a bodmon. Say what you will about Nate, the man hustles. He’s a hustler. Everyday he’s hustlin.

Ya ya he’s emotional, he’s questionable on D, and sometimes he goes totally rogue and throws the ball at the backboard with the force of a thousand angry pigs….but all that is forgotten when Nate steps it up and pulls through with amazing plays.

A few things I love about Nate:

1) His CRAZY hops

Nate is 5’9” and does crazy stuff like dunk over Spud Webb (who is 5’7”) - he (arguably) did it again, three years later, over Dwight Howard (who is 6’11”)

image

Nate’s hops also enable him to do things like block YAO MING, and LEBRON JAMES. No big deal, they’re just a billion inches taller than him.

2) Shrek and Donkey

In Boston he was “donkey” to Glen Davis’ “Shrek” and won them Game 5 of the NBA finals in 2010.

image

3) Flu game

Nate’s performance with the Bulls in this year’s NBA playoffs was legendary. The Bulls were missing several key players (Hinrich, Deng, ROSE obviously) so Nate had to step it up and make plays. Nate seriously went buck and played his heart out. In Game 6, despite battling the flu, Nate played - he took multiple puke breaks, but he played and scored 18 points.

4) He elicits this kind of reaction from fans:
