9 things you may not know about Dennis Rodman

Dennis Rodman is a basketball player from the United States. Simply saying the name conjures up an endless stream of anecdotes, tales, and stories at the edge of reality in the minds of many (both NBA and non-NBA fans).

1. Engaged to Madonna

Veronica Ciccone, aka Madonna, expressed her desire to learn more about the eccentric player who was performing so well on the NBA court. SHE WHO WOULD LIKE TO KNOW HIM.

Rodman even claims in his autobiography to have taken her to bed the same night he met her (and if he says so...), in a story that has long dominated the front pages of tabloid magazines. Yet, the story lacked the detail that he forbade Madonna from using condoms.

2. Sager saved him from suicide

Yes, the eccentric journalist Craig Sager, who died in 2016 after a long battle with leukemia. When Dennis's life was about to take a turn for the worse, the campista edge, famous for his jackets, unwittingly starred in the role of the savior.

Rodman was suffering from a deep depression in 1993, and many feared he was contemplating suicide. Craig Sager, by chance, discovered him on the second floor of a nightclub with a pistol clutched in his hands. And the rest became legend.

3. His 46 brothers

Rodman was raised by his mother with his two sisters after his father "busy doing something else" abandoned him when he was only 5 years old.

During his Hall of Fame acceptance speech, the former Bulls player mentioned that he has 46 brothers and sisters. After being questioned, Father Philander defended himself "from the accusation," claiming he only has 29 children, not 47.

4. LeBron average player

The debate is well-known, and it is linked to a comparison of basketball 30 years ago versus today. And when asked for a comparison between "his" Michael Jordan and LeBron James, Rodman has never been good with words:

“It’s really not a comparison. If Lebron was playing in the late 80’s or early 90’s, he’s just an average player. But to do what Mike has done, seriously. Michael…what he did is more charisma, is more artistic and stuff like that. LeBron is more like…boom. There’s no flash to his game. He’s a great player, don’t get me wrong. He’s a hell of a player. I’ll give him that…to be his size. But for me…Scottie and Michael are one of the best one-two punches I’ve ever seen, dude. Seriously."

Statements made prior to LBJ's victory with the Cavaliers. Who knows if he's changed his mind since then.

5. The friend Kim Jong-Un

Everyone has the friends that they are entitled to. Well, Kim Jong-Un, the tyrannical dictator, went very well: their relationship dates back to 2013 when Rodman and his entourage were literally the first Americans to set foot on the ground of North Korea after many years under the guise of an exhibition match.

It was basically love at first sight from then on. Dennis addressed the president with the words "a friend for life."

6. The "problems" with sex

Dennis's life under the sheets wasn't always a walk in the park. It took a very willing friend and a whopping $20 to get him to give up his virginity at the age of 20. 

Fortunately for him, it was all downhill from there. One of the shots included the aforementioned Madonna. A roll of gear that also led him to 7 ratios (a 1 vs 6 ratios that could not be replicated even on parquet), which the good Rodman was proud of right after the performance ended at a club party.

The six maidens had knocked on the wrong door if they were looking for discretion.

7. The wedding dress

Madonna was now a thing of the past, and her autobiography, which had just been released, promised plenty of scandals. But you needed a theatrical coup to present it: someone asked for a staging?

He continued with an official declaration of his bisexuality. Then he published another book in 2005, but this time he chose a much more sober profile: he allowed himself to be discovered lying in a coffin. 

8. The 9 days of marriage

Carmen Electra, a model for Playboy (as well as many other cool things), is a tidbit to keep in mind. This is not a place for everyone. In 1998, it was love at first sight, and the wedding happened in the blink of an eye. Perhaps a little too soon. Rodman opted for cancellation 9 days later.

Electra explained "It's easy to get caught up in a moment. You think it's romantic, but then you realize, 'God, we did it in Vegas?' It's like getting a cheeseburger at a fast-food restaurant."

9. Dennis' 3 "Penis"

Rodman's "rod" (yes, that's it) was broken three times.

The first time she was on a boat, she ended up in a sea of blood (saved briefly) and attacked the girl who was keeping him company. The second occurred while he was putting the lessons learned from the well-known book "10 different ways to get sucked..." into practice. The third comes almost naturally, as the saying goes, "there is no two without three."
