Dennis Rodman’s journey to the NBA was as unique as it gets. Around the age of 20, he grew eight inches and found himself playing basketball at Cook County Junior College. After his junior college career, he committed to Southeastern Oklahoma State University. Rodman dominated at this small NAIA university which led him to become a second-round pick by the Pistons in the 1986 NBA Draft. Rodman flourished in his 14 seasons in the NBA. In 911 games, he averaged 7.3 points along with 13.1 rebounds per game. He finished his storied career as a two-time All-NBA, two-time Defensive Player of the Year, two-time All-Star, and a five-time NBA Champion. In 2011, Rodman was rewarded for his prolific career. That year the Detroit Pistons retired his jersey, and he was also inducted into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame.
