NBA fans will always be getting into the conversation about who is the GOAT. Everyone has their own criteria and answer, and Dennis Rodman is no exception.
LeBron James is in a lot of those conversations as fans debate about who is the best of all time. This topic also brings up names that Rodman played with like Michael Jordan himself. If you ask The Worm, King James isn’t even up to snuff with Scottie Pippen
While speaking to the Overtime YouTube channel, Rodman was asked if he would be willing to lock up with LeBron James during his prime years. If you ask Rodman, he would have locked LeBron up with little issues
“I would’ve locked his ass up. LeBron is so easy to play. He’s so f*cking easy to play. He don’t have any moves. The only move he has is straight down the line. He ain’t got no moves. Where’s he going?
“His game is too simple. He’s just big…you know, 260…6’8″, 6’9″, whatever. That’s the only thing he’s got. Pretty much.”
Rodman doubled-down on that statement as he said that “If LeBron was playing during the ’90s, I’d still say Scottie Pippen was the second-best player behind Michael [Jordan].”
Pippen is no stranger to controversy nowadays either. He recently stated that Michael Jordan’s Bulls wouldn’t have made it to their first NBA Finals without him if the Seattle Supersonics would have held onto Pippen in the draft.
The debate about the NBA GOAT will continue to be waged for NBA fans. Dennis Rodman certainly spoke his piece, but that hypothetical scenario can never be really tested since time machines don’t exist yet.
