Dennis Rodman is a well-known name in the world of basketball, but also perhaps one of the most famous NBA legends in general. He attracted the most attention with his appearance and manner of behavior, even though he has a legendary career in the NBA where he won five rings.

Dennis Rodman won the NBA League 3 times with the Chicago Bulls in the second half of the nineties. He played with both Jordan and Pippen in that legendary generation of Bulls. However, as we are used to, Rodman never ceases to amaze, so he has now declared that he has never spoken to Pippen and Jordan.

Very strange indeed. "Well, I think it was important for me to go there and win. Me and Scottie, and Michael, never had a conversation in three years in Chicago. Only time we had a conversation is on the court. That was it. And nobody believes that.

I said well, only people I had a conversation with was probably Jud Buechler, Randy Brown, Steve Kerr, Luc Longley and other players. But me, Michael, and Scottie, we never had a conversation off the court," Dennis Rodman once told Bensinger.

as quoted by sportskeeda "For me, I was just more there for the ride, pretty much. I wanted to win championships with these guys. I would go to war for these guys any time of the day. It was just sad the fact that we could have come back and won a fourth championship very easily," Rodman said in an interview with ESPN's "First Take back" in 2020, via Bleacher Report.

At the end of the conversation, he emphasized that he doesn't regret anything, except that he didn't win the fourth ring in a row with the Bulls, because Jordan soon retired and he and Pippen changed teams.

We all know what kind of life Rodman led after his NBA career, a very turbulent life indeed. "Me and Mike and Scottie have so much love for each other now because we're not haters with each other. We embrace the fact that we had a chance to play with each other.

We're friends. We're not calling each other every day and hanging out, but when we see each other, we share the love. Like, 'Hey, appreciate you, man. I've got your back.' Stuff like that. That's how we love each other now," Rodman said in an interview with Bleacher Report in 2020.

"We embrace it because we put the NBA back on the map in the '90s. Me and Mike and Scottie revolutionized the game. The way everyone plays now, that's how we played then. And now all of a sudden everyone's talking about Big Threes.

Now? Really? We were the Big Three. We were the main three. We consistently won, we consistently won championships," he added.
