Dennis Rodman's profession and career
The basketball star tried to make the high school basketball team four times but failed every time. He then shot up in height (201cm) and earned himself a scholarship to play at Southeastern Oklahoma State University. He was later drafted by the Pistons in 1986.
Over 20 years, Rodman played for various teams and was named the NBA’s Defensive Player of the Year in 1989–1990 and 1990–1991. He was not an exceptional leaper, but his timing, tenacity, and desire, combined with his ability to enrage opponents by holding, grabbing, and shoving, made Rodman one of the league’s top rebounders.
The sportsman had already established a reputation for on-court temper tantrums and erratic off-court behaviour, and it was during his time with the Chicago Bulls that he became known for outlandish antics that made him a national celebrity. He continuously went against league officials and coaches, started getting various tattoos and piercings, and his hair was always a different, bright colour. He also took on a wild partying lifestyle.
Rodman dated superstar Madonna for a while and was briefly married to actress Carmen Electra (his second marriage). He also famously staged a wedding - marrying himself, dressed in a bridal gown. His behaviour and mood swings became unpredictable, but the coach and Chicago Bulls star Michael Jordan overlooked his behaviour as he always seemed to rise to the occasion on the court.
The celebrity tried his hand at acting in films and at professional wrestling (he fought against Hulk Hogan) but was not particularly successful in either of these fields. He also wrote three autobiographies, had his own TV show called The Rodman World Tour and played the lead in Double Team (1997) and Simon Sez (1999), which earned him a triple Razzie Award.
He appeared in a number of reality TV programs, and in 2013 he travelled with a documentary crew to North Korea, where he became the first American to meet the country’s new leader, Kim Jong-Un.
His career also holds many other crazy antics such as flying to Las Vegas to gamble a few times a month and dressing in drag at his book signing.
The global superstar was, according to our research, very attached to his mother. It was the young star's mother who gave him the nickname "The Worm" because of how he wiggles while playing pinball.
Dennis has three children. Their names are Alexis, DJ (only son), and Trinity Rodman. Alexis is his firstborn daughter, whom he shares with his ex-wife Annie. DJ and Trinity are the children he fathered in his relationship with Michelle Moyer.
Dennis Rodman's parents
According to our research, the athlete has many brothers and sisters. His father maintains that he has between 26 and 28 siblings on his father's side. Rodman, however, has stated that he is, in fact, the oldest of a total of 47 children.
Dennis Rodman and Madonna
Dennis was seen dating many celebrities during the height of his career. The most famous, and bizarre story, however, was that Madonna offered him $20 million to impregnate her. Needless to say, he turned down the offer. One of Dennis Rodman's ex-wives is the ultra famous Carmen Electra who he was married to from 1998 to 1999.
Rodman averaged 7.3 points, 13.1 rebounds, and 1.8 assists per game. He played professionally for the Detroit Pistons from 1986-93; The San Antonio Spurs from 1993-1995; The Chicago Bulls from 1995-1998, Los Angeles Lakers in 1999, and The Dallas Mavericks in 2000.
He held the record for most rebounds per game for seven straight seasons (1991–92 to 1997–98), finishing with a remarkable total of 11,954 in 14 seasons in the NBA. Rodman won three championships with the Chicago Bulls in 1996, 1997 and 1998, and two titles with the Detroit Pistons in 1989 and 1990.
What does Dennis suffer from?
Former Chicago Bulls head coach Phil Jackson said in 1998 that Rodman was "mentally handicapped" and credited Pearl Jam singer Eddie Vedder for helping him stay on track. Jackson explained that Rodman's decision to take part in a WCW show rather than attend practice for the NBA Finals was a tipping point.
According to Peggy Williams, his financial advisor said: "In all honesty, Dennis, although a very sweet person, is an alcoholic."
How much is Dennis Rodman currently worth?
Dennis Rodman reportedly made $9,000,000 in 1997, and at least $26,965,000 playing professional basketball. His current net worth is estimated at $500 000.
Is Dennis Rodman in the Hall of Fame?
Dennis Rodman was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame as a Player in 2011.
When and why did Dennis retire?
In 1999, a year before retiring, Rodman's agent Dwight Manley said "He does not want to play. He wants to go into the sports and entertainment field. Some people have convinced him that he wants to become a movie star." Dennis Rodman last played professional basketball in 2000 and retired from the NBA that same year.
