Dennis Rodman Biography

Growing Up, Better Late Than Never, The Professional Dennis, Basketball Takes A Backseat, Chronology


American basketball player

Bad Boy of Basketball Dennis Rodman is perhaps more famous for his exploits off the court (as well as a few key incidents while on the court) than he is for his superlative play. Rodman's physical appearance is as hard to miss as the rumors and gossip that surround him. Known for his multi-hued, everchanging hair color and a penchant for adding a new tattoo at a moment's notice, as well as any number of piercings, Dennis Rodman (known also as "The Worm") is in fact one of the greatest rebounders to ever set foot on the hardwood. A student of the game who led the National Basketball Association (NBA) in rebounding for four straight years, Rodman was a key factor in bringing home championships for the Detroit Pistons and the Chicago Bulls.
