'90s Highlights

The Worm was a rebounding machine his entire career. Rumor has it that he used to watch hours of film and study how missed shots bounced off of the rim. Hearing that explains how the 6'7", 210 lbs forward averaged 13.1 boards for his career. He was also a top-notch defender, winning two straight Defensive Player of the Year awards in 1990 and 1991. Controversy aside, Dennis was a winner. He won titles with the Bad Boy Pistons and won titles with the Bulls. If it weren't for Rodman's antics vs. Karl Malone, Chicago might've dropped a series to Utah.
