Could Taj turn into the next Dennis Rodman?

Taj has made a significant leap, and I think Taj can have a great career well into his 30's because of his motivation and discipline. You can see below that Dennis was a much better rebounder but never the scorer that Taj has become. However, Dennis did not become a special rebounder until after he turned 30. I think if Taj keeps working, he could become a starter next year and take another huge step.

What are your thoughts? Could Taj follow a similar path as Dennis without the tattoos and colored hair?
