Making an appearance for YouTube channel ‘Overtime,’ Rodman was cast in a segment where he was put in a lie detector test. Rodman didn’t hold back against the funny questions that were put against him. For instance, he was asked to pick between his ex-wife Carmen Electra and Madonna.

The NBA legend then received a question which might have hit him in the head directly. The host asked him if he could guard LeBron James for which he took it as an offense and answered back in the most crooked way.

Rodman slams LeBron James for being “too simple” on the court

Rodman had no second thoughts on answering the question he received. “Can you lock up LeBron?” He replied by saying “I could have locked his a** up.” The red light immediately flashed indicating that Rodman was lying from the heart. He may have thought that LeBron indeed was a tough man to guard.

That is not all. In Rodman’s eyes, LeBron James has got a poor game with no moves on the court. “LeBron is so easy to play. He is so f***ing easy to play. He has got no moves.” He mentioned how James just runs straight down the line with no other move to display. 

“Scottie Pippen could shut his fu**ing a** down quick before I get to him,” he said. Donning a “Make Basketball Tough Again” cap in the interview, he talked about how the 6-foot-9 Lakers man just drives straight through to dunk.

Rodman had nothing to spare against LeBron’s “simple” game. “I’ve played against guys 7 foot…300.” He registered that LeBron is not equipped with other skills apart from running in and dunking. Safe to say that Dennis Rodman is no fan of big guys who like to use their physicality to control the game.

He even game a similar remark when asked about Kevin Durant’s game. “They are just long. They are just tall.” He stated that the height and the dunking ability is all these guys have got. Rodman is not holding back when it comes to giving his opinion on current NBA stars. He gives his outright opinion and never hesitates in doing so.
