Rodman was a good offensive player in his prime. One of the best in the league. He was a big impact on offense.
Also it isn't like Peja >>>>>>>> Richmond as a shooter. Richmond's best year in my 3 year stretch is better than Peja's best year.
That's with the college 3 point line. Peja shot from the real 3 point line.
Didn't break 10ppg in the years Titan is using him and his rebounding numbers are worse than Malone's are for my three year stretch. Difference being that The Mailman was pouring in 30pts a game. So if we are going by the three year stretch Malone is negating Rodman on the boards at a minimum. So yea Shaq is going to get to the offensive glass but it isn't like we are at some massive disadvantage on their boards considering we are bigger and more athletic at the other 4 spots.
In short, fast breaking will not be an issue whatsoever.
At no point in time was Dennis Rodman one of the best offensive players in the league.
In 1997, Rodman was one of the better offensive players. The Bulls played better offense with Rodman on the court than even MJ. In fact, among big minute players, no player had a better team offensive rating on the court better than dennis Rodman
He impacted the game in other ways than just shooting.
What the fuck? Anyone who has ever watched a basketball game with Dennis Rodman playing would never even call him a mediocre offensive player in the NBA. The only reason he ever scored is because teams would gamble on defensive by just leaving him wide open.
I honestly don't give a shit about this/parlay
If you really think Dennis Rodman was a great offensive player then that is fine.
You have to watch the game of basketball closely to understand Rodman's brilliance. He didn't impact the offensive game from scoring or passing, there are other ways to do that. But he was the greatest offensive rebounder in history and last time I checked offensive rebounds count as offense. He got so many rebounds that it affected the opponent and opened up the game for his teammates. That's why he is a good offensive player.
He averaged about 1 more offensive rebound a game than Malone during their respective stretches.
Read this if you want to understand how good Rodman was
And here is a comparison of Rodman vs Michael Jordan
You fuckers really voted for him in this tournament?
* At least Will eventually came to his senses.
I fully appreciate how good Rodman was and an intangible player. I don't think you win championships without those kinds of players. I also think in my prime, I could have beaten Dennis Rodman in a game of HORSE. That makes you not one of the best offensive players of all time.
I don't even read Coltsfan's stuff. If he's supporting one team, it probably means he thinks the other team is better.
It was more then one. That said, I don't get why he picked those years for Rodman.
Offense isn't all about just scoring. Rodman is perfect for this format since he doesn't the ball to impact the game. He gets his rebounds, and plays great defense. There is a reason why he was apart of 5 title teams and almost always played on great teams. In fact he is preferred in this format since you are trying to get 4 or 5 scorers to share one ball and their impacts will diminish without the ball. Rodman's impact doesn't rely on the ball hence him being a big piece on title teams.
btw, you are underrating young rodman's scoring abilities if you think you can take him in Horse. he averaged 16 Points per 36 minutes and 56 FG% as a young guy. In college he averaged 26 PPG.
I don't know how to read Titan's years. Mine are clearly three years where it looks like he picked 4 year stretches.
Example Shaq: 1999-00 season, 00-01 season, 01-02 season.
Yea that is misleading for me but I got it now. To me 99-02 reads like 99,00, 01, and 02.
I love how you are defending how good of an offensive player he is by literally saying he "plays great defense". You do realize that, by definition, that has nothing to do with his offensive capabilities.
Edit: meant to quote coltsfan.

Holy shit. If you think Karl Malone is even in the same league as Rodman as a rebounder then I can't even discuss basketball with you.
In 1996, Karl Malone got 7.1% of offensive rebounds and 24.2% of defensive rebounds.
In 1996, Dennis Rodman got 19.9% of offensive rebounds and 33.2% of defensive rebounds. 1/5 missed shots turns into another offensive possession. So he will almost get as many offensive boards as Malone gets defensive.
Just dumb to even compare the two. It blows my mind that you just flat out disregard FG% as being a excel nerd. Your team misses shots and will get dominated on the boards.
I do agree w colts that rodman can be a big asset cause not everyone can have the ball at once. How effective were teams doubling off rodman as they won title after title. In this format not everyone can take 15+ shots. You gotta have guys that win other ways too
If people can't understand how a guy who turns missed shots into more shots isn't an offensive threat, then I definitely don't have a chance. There is more to the game then just putting the ball in the basket. That is all Will's team does. This "complete team" bs is ridiculous. Completely one dimensional. Might as well have drafted Westhead as your coach.
Yeah, have fun doubling off the post on Shaq. The second they give up position, Shaq is taking a shot and Rodman gets the board if he misses.
If it were that easy for rodman to make a living doing that then how come he only averaged more than 10pts a game once?
