I’m not really sure why anyone listens to Dennis Rodman anymore. Especially since his new “friendship” with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. It’s mostly for entertainment now. Rodman went on The Dan Patrick Show and told Dan some pretty bold statements:
“If LeBron was playing in the late ’80s or early ’90s, he’d be just an average player.”
“If Michael played today … really? If he played the game today at 28 years old, he would average 40 points a game, probably more.”
“I’m just sick and tired of people always comparing him and Michael Jordan. It’s a whole different era, man.”
Rodman said it’d be “no contest” if the Bulls of Jordan, Scottie Pippen and Rodman played today’s Heat of James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.
“The Heat has better talent than we had, but we had smarter players. We would match up with the Heat easy. I would take Bosh out of his damn game easy. That’s not even a problem. How would Dwyane Wade match up with Scottie Pippen? Really? Scottie Pippen would guard LeBron easy. How are you going to cover those two guys [Jordan and Pippen]?”
