However, amidst this drama, Rodman stated his views during a Q&A video. The Worm said, “The book, I don’t know what to say about that. I lived with those guys for four years, and I never saw that. But I just think Scottie is so hurt, because he wants to get that recognition with Michael.”

Seemingly, Rodman’s words displayed mixed emotions about the ongoing feud between them.
