Happy Birthday! Dennis Rodman's 20 Craziest Moments

7. Bird is Overrated "Because He's White"

Year: 1987
Before he had the funky hair colors, tats, and piercings Rodman was a young guy on the Pistons who was not afraid to speak his mind. After the Celtics handed them a playoff defeat in '87, the Worm spout off at the mouth about Larry Bird saying the only reason he won three MVPs was "because he's white" and that he was also "overrated in a lot of areas." Sorry Dennis, you don't average 26, 10, and 7, and win two titles in that three-year MVP reign because you're white.
