Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, and Dennis Rodman were one of the best big 3’s in NBA history, if not the best.
What made these three play so well together was the fact that they all embraced their roles and stayed in their lanes. Jordan was the prolific scorer, lockdown perimeter defender, and clutch performer. Pippen was the point forward who ran the floor amazingly well and was dominating on defense. Rodman was the absolute rebound king who brought constant energy and enthusiasm.
While they were a killer three on the court, apparently they never spoke off the court.
There are a few bigger enigmas in the world of basketball than Dennis Rodman. In an interview a few years ago with Yahoo Sports, Rodman said he felt it wasn’t essential to have and maintain a healthy relationship with his teammates, the only important thing was to go out there and win — you can’t really argue with that.
So as much as we’d like to believe that Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, and Dennis Rodman spent hours and hours being the best friends of the court, seems like it was strictly business, especially for ‘The Worm.
And still, nothing stopped them from winning three championships in a row. Despite the three not having personal relationships off the court, they were one of the most successful teams in NBA history.
