Dennis Rodman is one of the most iconic yet wildest players in NBA history. His social and love life has been well-documented for ages as every story about him isn't the typical one you hear, especially in today's league.
The Hall-of-Famer not only stands out for his achievements on the basketball court but also for his stories off the court that involve his sex, love, and social life. After all, it's not every day you hear about a player dating pop star icon Madona or even Los Angeles Lakers owner Jeanie Buss.
But if there's a story that perfectly encapsulates Rodman's wildlife off the court, it's no other than that time when he was in the middle of an oral sex session while doing a radio interview with Jorge Sedano, who at that time was the host of mornings at 790 The Ticket in Miami show.
The most awkward interview of all time
Sedano started the interview by casually asking Rodman about the state of the NBA in 2010 -- this was when LeBron James was still with the Miami Heat and gradually stamping his name in the league as the best basketball player. Sedano asked Rodman about his thoughts on James, but 1 minute into the interview, the radio host noticed that Rodman wasn't answering his questions clearly as the interview was getting choppy.
As the interview progressed, the sound on Dennis' end remained extremely awkward as weird sexual sounds in the background continued. Sedano finally bravely asked Rodman what the hell was going on.
"She's just sucking something," Rodman said, laughing it off. "Sorry! I'm sorry about that. You said keep clean, right?" Rodman then hinted that he was in the middle of an oral sex session: "Ooh, that's awesome. You know dude, I am so in the mix right now!"
"I know, dude, why are you calling me then?" Sedano responded. "What the hell are you talking to me for? If you've got that chick there, why the hell did you want to call me, Dennis?" said a weirded-out Sedano.
Sedano opens up about the interview
Sedano deserves a lot of credit for his professionalism and how he handled the interview. At least, he still got Rodman to say something of a substance despite the awkward situation he was in. Last July, the radio host (who now works for ESPN) opened up about his infamous encounter on air with Rodman.
According to Sedano, Rodman's agent reached out to him because Dennis wanted to talk about James on air at that time. It just happened that Rodman and his agent were living in Miami in 2010 and were avid listeners of Sedano's sports show. The agent initially wanted to call Howard Stern, who also hosts his own radio show, but unfortunately, he wasn't available, so Sedano stumbled on the most awkward interview of his life.
"Well, I just asked him, listen to it. I could hear the woman in the background," Sedano said in his latest appearance at The Sports Talkers Podcast. "He kind of put her on the phone a little bit, but then I heard things that sounded like he was getting pleasured and I just asked him: Dennis, are you getting it on right now? And he was like, 'Oh yeah, brother.'"
"I didn't know what else to do other than to not say what was actually happening but give people the idea of what was happening and then ask him the questions that need to be asked at that moment," Sedano said.
Suffice it to say that this is an interview Sedano will never forget.
