Chicago Bulls and NBA legend Michael Jordan had an unmatched mindset during his playing days. Furthermore, he always had this hunger to be best at whatever he did and for most parts he has been successful in doing so.
Whether be it winning individual accolades, lifting the NBA Championships, or dragging his teammates back on the court and getting the best out of them. Yes, you guessed it right! We are talking about the incident when MJ went to Vegas and brought back Dennis Rodman to play in the NBA finals.
Well, something similar could be the case for the Golden State Warriors’ Steph Curry and Draymond Green. It’s not to that extent, but Green has been letting his emotions get in the way this season. For example, the Dubs lost a close game vs the Hornets and Green’s ejection played a crucial role in that.
After that underwhelming performance against the Hornets, ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith suggested that Curry could be the only player that can get into Draymond’s Green. On this suggestion Kellerman said:
“I know Draymond and Dennis Rodman aren’t exactly the same players and on the court Draymond has more diverse offensive skills. But could you imagine a final series with the Bulls up against it and Dennis Rodman about to be the MVP of the finals with a game seven performance. It wouldn’t have happened. And when Rodman took a hideout for a second in Vegas.
“They went over this in the Last Dance. He in the room with Carmen Electra and she tells it from her point of view and Michael Jordan busts in that room. He was coming back with Dennis Rodman. That is Michael Jordan as the unquestioned alpha of the team. And I do think you mentioned Steph by name, I do think that’s the difference in the dynamic of this team.”
Can Steph Curry do what MJ did for Rodman? Well, let us know your views on Kellerman’s comments in the comments section down below.
