Dennis Rodman’s daily routine included a visit to the strip club, downing 30 shots of Jagermeister

Dennis Rodman worked hard and partied harder. His routines included partying until the wee hours of the morning, getting seduced by both men and women, and giving in to the crowd's request on the dance floor.
Dennis Rodman’s daily routine includes visit to strip club, downing 30 shots of Jagermeister

Rodman was famous among fans because they knew it would take only little for Dennis to show his wild side

Dennis Rodman epitomized the words "bad boy" while still playing and broke what a professional athlete should behave and look like in his career. But no matter what, Rodman did his job, played his role to perfection, and won titles. That's all you could ask for, and if anyone is wondering how the Chicago Bulls tamed the bad boy in Rodman, they didn't. So they lived with it and reaped the benefits.

Dennis Rodman's crazy routines

A typical basketball player's routine would involve waking up, eating nutritious meals, training, watching video tapes, and then going home to rest and recuperate. Dennis Rodman was no average player, and his routines were slightly different than your classic athlete.

In an interview, The Worm shared his routines when he was still playing. Unsurprisingly, it involved going to bars and drinking heavily until the wee hours of the morning.

"Ride the bicycle, workout after the game, get to a steakhouse then go to a club, str*p club first, then bar, then go have about, 10-15-20-30 shots of Jagermeister coolest light, go home about 5'0 clock in the morning, get up at 9:30, go to practice, workout, do my job and do it all over again."

Ex-teammate Toni Kukoc witnessed it. He once partied with Dennis and claimed he needed 7-10 days of recovery. Kukoc also shared how Rodman bought food and drinks for everyone at the bar. There's just something in the power forward that was irresistible for men and women alike. The Worm admitted he didn't have to use pick-up lines because he was the one most often approached. Imagine receiving this kind of pick-up line, and you'd know you were a cut above the rest: "I want to do you like Madonna. If you f***ed her, you must be pretty good."

Rodman was famous among fans because they knew it would take only little for Dennis to show his wild side. The fans knew The Worm didn't care what other people would think of him. But, once he's in his element, he's like a possessed man, and everyone else at the bar is at his mercy.

With the way the 7-time rebounding champion pushed his body to the limit, it's a wonder how he delivered monstrous numbers. Rodman knew how to work hard, but he partied harder. It leaves a question in our minds: how devastating Dennis Rodman could have been if he worked harder and partied less? However, it was his way of coping with the demons inside him, so Dennis struck a balance between hard work and pleasure, and 5 NBA titles prove that his love for nightlife didn't interfere with his full-time job.

MJ relented to Rodman's requests

We all know Michael Jordan didn't like people who didn't work as hard as him since he always pushed his teammates to get better. But when Rodman did Rodman things, Phil Jackson had to step in to avoid any locker room problems.

Jackson allowed Dennis to take a short breather in Las Vegas amid a crucial playoff series. Mike thumbed it down, but Phil relented to Rodman's wishes. The Zen Master knew that the more they tried to control The Worm, the more problems it could bring.

There will be no Dennis Rodman 2.0 simply because of his quirkiness and efficiency despite his notorious private life. Phil Jackson made it work, and even the great Michael Jordan had no choice but to say yes. The Worm proved that winning solves everything and shuts the critics up.
