Dennis Rodman is not a fan of Larry Bird

As almost all NBA fans know, Dennis Rodman is not afraid to speak his mind. Well, he has done it again. The Bulls legend took a shot at former rival and Boston Celtics legend Larry Bird in his most recent hiatus.

“I’ll put it this way: If Larry Bird played in this era, I think he’d be in Europe. You’ll be somewhere over there,” Rodman said in the video shared on YouTube. “His game was fit for Boston at that time, in the 80s and stuff like that. So, today’s world, hell no. I’m not downplaying him because he was a great player at that time, just like I was. But I’m saying no, there’s no way. No way.

“I think the kid from Denver is way better than him,” Rodman added. “Oh my God, he’s slow as hell. He plays slow, but that guy got a game. I think he’s better than Larry Bird. In this day and age, yeah. I’m saying he can shoot that three like woosh, my God. So, wow. Compare him to Larry Bird, I think people would pick him.”

“That kid from Denver” is Nikola Jokic, a two-time NBA MVP, NBA Champion and Finals MVP. Jokic is already one of the top players of all time, but saying he is already better than Larry Bird is a bit of a stretch. To add on, they played in two completely different eras. Comparing them is almost crazy.

Rodman, another NBA legend, is known for his hustle, rebounding and antics off the court. Rodman famously took a trip to Las Vegas during the NBA season with the Chicago Bulls as a way to help himself. Now, Rodman is taking his antics up a notch with his shot at Bird.

Is Rodman right or wrong? Let us know in the comments!
