Former NBA defensive beast Dennis Rodman had an interview with CBS Sports and had a few words about Cleveland Cavaliers LeBron James and they weren’t positive words.
You know what, LeBron’s doing one thing that I always said that Michael Jordan never did.
He never rested. He played every game. He played every game. LeBron has the position to do this now because they need him. The league needs him, that’s why he’s doing all this crazy s— now like bitching and complaining and all this [BS].
“It’s very easy to do what they define greatness [as now] — Michael Jordan did it when it was tough, really tough. And what’d he do? Lead the league in scoring 10 years in a row. Ten years in a row, he led the league in scoring. Ten years in a row, back then, that was hard. Averaged like 32 points a game. That was hard back then. Now it’s easy. All these [expletive] triple-doubles … back then when he was getting his ass whooped, I mean beat down every game, and then when he played against us [the Detroit Pistons], he said — guess what — ‘I gotta go back in the gym.’ And he got tough. He got tough and he got great. And greater. So, that’s it.
Rodman has five championships (one with the Detroit Pistons and four with the Chicago Bulls) and was the NBA Defensive Player of the Year twice.
