NBA stars react to wild Rodman moments in ‘The Last Dance’

ESPN’s documentary series “The Last Dance” aired episodes 3 and 4 on Sunday, and they focused on the rise of the Chicago Bulls from a struggling franchise to a power in the NBA’s Eastern Conference.

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.

Carmen Electra recalled an interesting encounter with Rodman when Michael Jordan came to check on his power forward.

Clearly, Andre Iguodala doesn’t quite believe Electra’s story.
