Dennis Rodman clearly did whatever the hell he wanted to do during his time in the NBA and it showed throughout “The Last Dance.”
The 10th and final episode of ESPN’s 10-part docu-series centered on Michael Jordan and the 1990s Chicago Bulls leading up to their 1997-98 title run also touched on a moment where Rodman skipped practice following the team’s 96-54 Game 3 victory to appear at a World Championship Wrestling event.
“I wasn’t trying to do anything,” Rodman said in the episode. “I was just trying to play basketball, party, da, da, da, da. F–k all the girls. Just be me. Dennis s–t, you know.”
Carmen Electra added: “He took a detour from playing with the Bulls to become a wrestler with Hulk Hogan.”
His antics got him fined $20K, but he made $250,000 for appearing at that WCW event.
I think it was well worth it.
The Bulls went on to defeat the Utah Jazz in six games.
