For the Bulls, this meant clashing with the division rival and NBA champion Detroit Pistons. It also meant facing off with a future teammate in Dennis Rodman. The episodes detailed the ups and downs of Rodman, including his rebounding genius, defensive ability and activities away from basketball.
NBA players went to Twitter to highlight their appreciation for Rodman's game and his antics, including a story about the time Michael Jordan had to retrieve "The Worm" from Las Vegas.
Every team in every sport got a player with Dennis Rodman mentality. They just don't have his talent , intangibles and Phil Jackson as the coach 🤣 #TheLastDance— CJ McCollum (@CJMcCollum) April 27, 2020
Rodman made that Bulls team invincible— Tristan Thompson (@RealTristan13) April 27, 2020
Be a star in your role...don't think anybody personified that more than Dennis Rodman— Richaun Holmes (@Rich_Holmes22) April 27, 2020
A locked in Dennis Rodman is a scary sight. 🐂🐂🐂— Kevin Love (@kevinlove) April 27, 2020
I love that Phil Jackson didnt try to crush Rodman's spirit. #TheLastDance— Gabrielle Union (@itsgabrielleu) April 27, 2020
One of the most recognizable people ever, from one of the greatest dynasties ever, was just walking around and partying in Las Vegas for 48 hours in the middle of the NBA season while they were trying to win their 6th title?!— JJ Watt (@JJWatt) April 27, 2020
What a time to be alive.
Imagine that today.
Still can't believe Rodman took a whole vacation mid season 😭😭— Alex Caruso (@ACFresh21) April 27, 2020
Say what you want Dennis Rodman invented load management 😂😂😂😂😂— Donovan Mitchell (@spidadmitchell) April 27, 2020
Carmen Electra recalled an interesting encounter with Rodman when Michael Jordan came to check on his power forward.
"There's a knock on the door and it's Michael Jordan, and I hid..." 🤣🤣 Anyone ever said that?#TheLastDance— Mo Bamba (@TheRealMoBamba) April 27, 2020
Nothing like a good Mid Season Vegas Bender with Carmen Electra to get the mind right— Frank Kaminsky III 🦛 (@FSKPart3) April 27, 2020
The Vegas story on Rodman shows how different Phil's thought process was as a coach. #TheLastDance Phil knew Worm was wired differently!!!— Garrett Temple (@GTemp17) April 27, 2020
Clearly, Andre Iguodala doesn't quite believe Electra's story.
She lying... she wasn't there...hidin... none of that. Lies!— andre (@andre) April 27, 2020
