Dennis Rodman 2022: Bio, Net Worth, and Endorsements

Dennis Rodman is a former NBA player, born on May 13, 1961, in Trenton, New Jersey. He was the 27th pick in the second round of the 1986 NBA Draft. Known as one of the greatest rebounders ever, Rodman played with tenacity and aggression which became a staple of his personality. He is a five-time NBA Champion to go along with various individual accolades.

In an NBA career spanning 14 years, Rodman played for Detroit Pistons, San Antonio Spurs, Chicago Bulls, Los Angeles Lakers, and Dallas Mavericks. He primarily played at the Power Forward position.

Rodman faced many difficulties in his childhood. After aborting a suicide attempt in 1993, he reinvented himself as a "bad boy" and became notorious for numerous controversial antics. From repeatedly dying his hair in artificial colors to wearing a wedding dress to promote his autobiography, Rodman always stayed in the news.

Rodman pursued a high-profile affair with singer Madonna and was briefly married to actress Carmen Electra. Rodman also attracted international attention for his visits to North Korea and his subsequent befriending of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in 2013.

Dennis Rodman NBA Career

After being drafted by the Detroit Pistons in 1986, Rodman took some time to come into his own. He spent seven seasons in Motor City and won back-to-back championships in 1989 and 1990. However, he was traded to the San Antonio Spurs in 1993 due to various factors.

Rodman's time in San Antonio didn't produce anything good for either the franchise or himself. His stint with the Spurs was marred by multiple disputes with management and he was eventually traded to the Chicago Bulls in 1995.

That's where his star shone the brightest. Playing alongside Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen elevated his status and he played a vital role in the Bulls winning three consecutive championships.

Rodman was released by the Bulls on January 21, 1999, before the start of the lockout-shortened 1998–99 season. He signed for the Los Angeles Lakers for the season. However, he only played 23 games for them before being released in the 1999 offseason.

He was signed by the Dallas Mavericks for the 1999-00 season. However, his erratic behavior proved to be detrimental to the franchise and he managed to play only 12 games.

After playing for various teams outside the NBA, Rodman retired in 2006. He was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2011.
