Ahead of night two of “The Last Dance” featuring Dennis Rodman and the Chicago Bulls, we look back on his best games in his NBA career.
Focusing just on the regular season, there’s a load of games to look back upon with awe from the lengthy and accomplished NBA career of the former Chicago Bulls big man and Hall-of-Famer Dennis Rodman.
This list will encompass games that Rodman played with the Bulls, along with his time with the Detroit Pistons and San Antonio Spurs. He did also have brief stints with the Dallas Mavericks and Los Angeles Lakers at the end of his NBA career, but didn’t make much of an impact during the regular season.

Moreover, Rodman spent most of his playing days with the Pistons. He began his career with the Pistons at 25 years old during the 1986-87 season. He was the 27th overall pick (second round) of the Pistons in the 1986 NBA Draft. After seven seasons with the Pistons, he spent two with the Spurs.
And then the climax of his career arrived with the Bulls in the 1990’s. He played alongside Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, Toni Kukoc, with the Bulls for three season (1995-96 through 1997-98). In all three seasons with the Bulls, Rodman got an NBA Championship.
Rodman would finish out his career with two All-Star selections, five NBA Championships, seven rebounding titles, eight All-Defensive Team selections, two All-NBA selections, and two Defensive Player of the Year awards. He was inducted into the Hall-of-Fame with the class of 2011.
