                Oh my gosh, we can never forget the kick to that camera man’s nuts. The camera man was like “this is it, I’m on the way”, I’m going to lay right and sell this moment until I am sure everything has been recorded. Hahaha

How did you feel when you watched it? Dennis Rodman: Well, Isaiah was more as a big brother, was more as a mentor to me, than anybody. He would leave his house, his family, in the middle of the night to come take care of me. He knew that I wasn’t too bright, as far as living a life of NBA player. He took the time out, like Chuck Daly did. They took their time out to just embrace me and said, ‘Well, he’s not smart enough to understand what he’s into, what he’s going to get into.’ He’s been on my side from day one. The things I said about Larry Bird in the ’87 playoff series, he took all the heat for me, which I didn’t know then, and he pretty much saved my career at that time. I think that he feels a love for me that he knows the ups and downs I’ve been through. He just feels that I’m part of his family; his kids and his wife, they just believe in me, and he’s just been that same emotional person to me, and I respect that from him.

He was part of that 3 championships. He had to guard Karl Malone in 2 Finals series. Malone was averaging 28 every night during his entire career. Without Dennis he would average even more. His defensive skills stopped Malone from scoring several plays during those Finals. Not sure why Dennis jersey wouldnt be retired there. Ironic, sure. But truth.
