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.
