Dennis Rodman was weird and obnoxious, but he was relentless on the court. Still don’t get the wedding dress!
Continuing my off-season ramblings, Timeless Sports supplied an idea of a comparison that I may not have considered prior to the tweet. Dennis Rodman was one weird son-of-a-bitch, but he would never give up on a play – as the video below demonstrates.
Whether you liked Rodman or not, just remember that he was a 7-time NBA rebounding champ – at 6’7″ and 220 pounds. He was a 2-time All-Star, 7-time All-Defense First Team and 2-time Defensive Player of the Year. Quite a resume.
Forget that he termed Larry Bird over-rated because he was white. That was heat-of-the-moment stuff. Wearing a wedding dress? I have no answer for that. The main point is that “The Worm” never gave up on a play. He was relentless – much like our own Marcus Smart.
I went searching for a video compilation of Smarty’s winning plays, and as usual, I found a great one by Tomasz Kordylewski.
There are reasons that Marcus is a favorite with fans and Danny Ainge. He makes winning plays and never gives up on one. He is tenacious – relentless – call it what you will. I just hope to never see him in a wedding dress.
