Michael Jordan got to play alongside some incredible players during the course of his career. Jordan found incredible success in the NBA thanks to his incredible play. But MJ wasn't alone in finding all the success during his career, as he had some incredible teammates to help him win the championships that he did.
One of his best teammates was none other than the legendary Dennis Rodman. Jordan initially played against Rodman, while 'The Worm' was on the Bad Boy Detroit Pistons. And Rodman was a big part of the Pistons' success, working as the strongest defensive enforcer for them.
But a few years later, Rodman's career had taken a few turns, and Rodman joined the Chicago Bulls in 1995. Rodman was brought in to be the rebounding and defensive enforcer for the Bulls. And with Rodman playing behind Scottie Pippen and Michael Jordan, the Bulls found a lot of success.
The Chicago Bulls won 3 consecutive NBA championships between 1996 to 1998. On top of that, Rodman's first season with the Bulls was a massive success, as they went 72-10, which was the best regular-season record in the NBA at the time. The two had a strong bond, one that we saw still endures to this day.
Last night, ahead of the 2022 NBA All-Star Game, the NBA honored the 75 best players in the history of the league. During the ceremony, Michael Jordan approached his former teammate Dennis Rodman on the stage, and the two shared a hug and a small but pleasant conversation with each other.
Rodman clearly has incredible respect for Michael Jordan. Even before they became teammates, Rodman spoke about how incredible Jordan was as an offensive player, and that he was almost unstoppable. Rodman has also noted in the past that he has a strong relationship with MJ, and this latest interaction proves him right.
Jordan actually interacted with several players last night. But the one that garnered the most reactions was LeBron James interacting with Michael Jordan, as two of the best players ever met each other. It was an extremely special night with a lot of incredible moments.
