“In San Antonio, you can talk to me, but I may not answer you.”
Although Rodman has been retired for a long time, at the age of 55, he still behaved like a prick in an interview with reporters.
On October 1, 1993, the Spurs traded Sean Elliott, their new all star small forward, to Detroit and brought back two rebounding titles, Dennis Rodman.
Like many scouts, the Spurs management knows that Rodman’s arrival will give the team a rare energy, but at the same time, they know that this guy can do anything outside the stadium.
So, how to let Rodman really into the team has become a headache for the whole team.
When Rodman first came to San Antonio, his teammate, power forward Terry Cummings and his family had dinner in a local steak house. They saw Rodman alone, so Cummings went to invite Rodman to sit with them.
To his surprise, Rodman didn’t even raise his head in the face of the hero who helped spurs rise in the general’s time, and directly ignored the existence of Cummins, as if there were no one around.
