American retired professional basketball player Dennis Keith Rodman (born May 13, 1961). His NBA website profile calls him "arguably the best rebounding forward in NBA history" for his defense and rebounding.   

The NBA's "the Worm" played for the Detroit Pistons, San Antonio Spurs, Chicago Bulls, Los Angeles Lakers, and Dallas Mavericks. Before becoming a power forward, Rodman played small forward.  

He was seven-time NBA All-Defensive First Team and twice NBA Defensive Player of the Year. For a record seven years, he led the NBA in rebounds per game and won five NBA titles.   

Later that year, Rodman was elected into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame and his No. 10 jersey was retired by the Pistons on April 1, 2011.[4] In October 2021, Rodman was named to the NBA 75th Anniversary Team as a legend.

Rodman had a troubled childhood and was shy and introverted. He became a "bad boy" after a 1993 suicide attempt and became infamous for his colorful behavior.  

He had various tattoos and piercings, colored his hair, and disrupted games by fighting with players and referees. His 1996 autobiography Bad as I Wanna Be was promoted in a bridal attire.   

Besides basketball, Rodman wrestled. Two Bash at the Beach pay-per-views featured him and Hulk Hogan in the main event. Rodman won Celebrity Championship Wrestling for the first time.   

His TV show, The Rodman World Tour, and action movie Double Team (1997) and Simon Sez (1999) were his leads. The former earned Rodman a triple Razzie Award for its poor reviews. He won the 2004 Celebrity Mole $222,000 grand prize and starred in various reality shows.
