Dennis Rodman was a one of a kind player when he was on an NBA court. Not just because of his insane talent, but because of his personality and wanting to do whatever the hell he wanted to.
I guess you can somewhat blame Phil Jackson and that Las Vegas trip he allowed him to go on. Whatever the case may be, after his time in Detroit ended, not many realized that he spent two seasons with the San Antonio Spurs before heading to the Bulls.
Spurs legend David Robinson recently opened up about that time period and talked about how he just wasn’t a good fit for the team.
“Dennis is a complicated guy. I think because of his background, he doesn’t always know how to express himself,” the Spurs icon said in a recent interview with Jason Goff of the Bulls Talk Podcast (via of Dylan Carter Fansided).
“He’s an easy guy to like because he has a good heart. He wants to play hard – he wants to do the right things, but as far as a team goes, he was so destructive to a team perspective. There was nothing you could do to make him get out of his comfort zone.”
Rodman joined the Spurs after being traded by the Pistons in 1993. He helped them reach the Western Conference Finals in one of his two seasons.
His importance to a team continued once he signed on with the Bulls and help them win 3-straight titles after Jordan was back from his first retirement.
