Being an NBA legend does justice to just one part of Dennis Rodman. The Hall of Famer was much more than one of the greatest rebounders of all time. A member of the prestigious NBA 75 team, The Worm became popular for his eccentric character. Being unapologetic and himself, Rodman’s antics off the court often landed him on the front page. And even after retirement, taking on the role of a basketball ambassador has helped him keep the streak alive.

After a legendary basketball career, Rodman has assumed the role of an unofficial US diplomat. Likewise, he is close with several controversial world figures. The five-time champion’s relationship with Kim Jong-Un and Donald Trump is public knowledge. However, the majority might not remember the Chicago Bulls’ great’s visit to Russia back in 2014.

Backlash is arguably a recurring theme in Rodman’s controversial friendships with world leaders. However, with the recent controversy surrounding Brittney Griner in Russia, the Worm almost used his pass with Putin to try and help out. Notably, the five-time NBA champ said he would fly out to Russia and attempt to free the WNBA superstar. However, Rodman later withdrew his claims.
