ESPN's Outside the Lines recaps Denis Rodman's persona and where he stands today. This man is completely responsible for where he is in life right now. But I still can't help but feel sorry for him.

ProBasketballTalk's Retroball Series: Pistons vs. Bulls 1989

9

Interesting concept and a great read/watch from the 1989 season just 15 days before Dantley is traded for Aguirre. Even moreso since we have nothing else to pay attention to with this league these days. Matt Moore goes back to watch this game which the Pistons not only held Jordan to his 2nd lowest scoring game of the season (21 points...his lowest being 18...lol WHAT!), but Rodman helps Jordan receive one of only 6 games in which he fouls out. Pistons win in OT and Moore provides his thoughts on the game.

The (weak) case against Dennis Rodman.

The Hall of Fame is not for supporting players. Here are Rodman's scoring averages for his three seasons with the Bulls: 5.5, 5.7 and 4.7 points. And if you're going to tell me that scoring isn't everything, I agree with you, but would also note that the Hall of Fame isn't for players averaging four or five points a game. Even though the majority of Rodman's shot attempts came on put-backs close to the basket, his shooting accuracy never reached 50 percent in Chicago, and it was 43.1 in his final season there. He couldn't create his own shot and let's not even talk about him as a perimeter shooter. Oh, what the heck, let's talk about it -- he averaged 23 percent on three-pointers for his career. Rodman was a great defensive player and bebounder, but both must be viewed through the prism of his having limited offensive responsibility.

Kenneth Faried rebounds like his mother's life depends on it

[Kenneth] Faried's mother Waudda suffers from lupus, an autoimmune disease that attacks the body's natural defense system, causing inflammation, pain, and tissue damage. Lupus is incurable but can be managed with rest, exercise, medication, and, apparently in the case of Waudda, rebounds. "Seeing my mother fight through lupus, that's one of those things that sticks with you," Faried said. "She's kept fighting all these years and tried to survive. I've learned a lot from her, about not quitting, having passion about everything you do. She's passionate about rebounding for me. So that's why, every time I play, I just tell myself every rebound I get is going to add an extra day to her life." .... "My mother loves it," Faried said. "She's always loved to hear more about my rebounding than my scoring. When I call her after a game, I'll tell her about my points or dunks, and she always says, 'how many rebounds did you get?' If I say nine, that's not good enough, even if I scored 20 points. So I'm always trying to get double figures. I can't let her down."
