Pippen believes Rodman belongs in the Hall of Fame | Bulls

15

The only thing I disagree with is that Rodman's production didn't show up in the box score. It did show up, it's just that people undervalue what he did, i.e., defend and rebound. A career average of 5.4 offensive and 9.5 defensive rebounds (14.9 total) every 36 minutes played. Better rebounding than Noah (4.2 7.3 11.5) or Howard (3.6 9.1 12.7) or Love (4.8 9.0 13.8). He defended everyone from Jordan to Malone. Even his misbehavior was canny -- he always seemed to get a suspension midseason, take a week off, and then come back stronger than every for the playoffs. He never got suspended when it mattered. Of course, after the Bulls swept the Pistons in 1991, I never would have guessed that Pippen, of all people, would become Rodman's advocate for the Hall of Fame!
