69: Dennis Rodman

Resume: 14 years, 10 unclear quality, 2 All-Stars... Top 15 '92, '95... Leader: Rebounds 7 Consecutives, FG% (1x)... All-Defense (8x).... DPOY ('90, '91)... 4 year peak 7-18-2... 2 year playoffs peak 8-14... Played for 5 Champs, started for 3... Career RPG 13.2...

 Dennis "The Worm" Rodman an accomplished wrestler and one of the greatest personalities in NBA history, well depending on your point of view, now let's get to the real Rodman... Dennis Rodman could rebound with the best of them, in fact he was the best of them, in his career "The Worm" has grabbed the highest percentage of his teams rebounds ever, he topped Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlain and even Kwame Brown.

Dennis Rodman was a defensive monstrosity who could defend any position on the floor, he covered Karl Malone, Shawn Kemp and many others with startling ease, if you needed a rebounder or defender or both, Dennis could do it all. Rodman would consistently save his teams on the boards and would inconsistently score points but became one of the greatest role-player and player overall doing so. If you could take any rebounder ever, who would you pick? Shaquille O'Neal? Shawn Kemp? Karl Malone? If all I needed was a rebounder or defensive specialist Dennis Rodman would be my pick!
