About Dennis Rodman
Dennis Keith Rodman is a former American basketball player and a member of Hall of Fame. During his career on the National basketball League he played with San Antonio Spurs, Detroit Pistons, Chicago Bulls, Los Angeles Lakers and Dallas Mavericks. He is a five times NBA champion, two times NBA Defensive Player of the year, seven times All-Defensive of the Year and a seven time NBA rebounding champion. With all these accolades and after more than 16 years on NBA, Dennis Rodman net worth is currently estimated at minus $1 million.
Dennis was born in New Jersey, in a troubled family of Philander and Shirley Rodman. His father, a former airlines pilot, went to fight in the Vietnam War and left a family when Dennis was still a toddler. Since the day he walked out of home Dennis has not seen his father for more than 40 years. In one of his interviews Rodman has revealed that he never felt like he had a father at all. Philander himself has stated that besides Dennis he has 25 or 27 kids, but according to Dennis this number could be even higher.
After Philander left home, Dennis, his mom and two sisters moved to live in one of the worst neighborhoods in Dallas.
Rodman has once said that as a kid he always felt like his mother loved his sisters more. They were both successful professional basketball players, considered to be extremely perspective athletes. Dennis, in contrast, at the time was just a weird kid who felt strange in his own body. Nobody believed that he could achieve anything special or that Dennis Rodman net worth could ever climb much above zero.
To their greatest surprise, during his years in college Rodman proved to be a perspective basketball player himself. In 1986 he was drafted by Detroit Pistons. Dennis stayed on NBA till 2000. During those years he earned $27 million for playing basketball alone, another solid sum landed in his pocket for various endorsement agreements and television appearances. After his NBA career was over Dennis continued playing basketball in the lower league and although his annual salary never climbed, he continued to receive quite formidable pay checks.
With all this income, how could this be that Dennis Rodman net worth is yet below zero? For one thing, his bankruptcy has a lot to do with his alcohol problems. It started years ago, when Rodman was playing on NBA and eventually hampered his career. His alcohol addiction reached the peak in 2008, when Rodman was forced to enter a rehab in Florida. In 2012 it was reported that he is sick, broke and hardy able to stay afloat himself, not to mention paying child and spouse support debts, which currently amount to nearly one million. With Dennis Rodman net worth currently at -1$ million, it looks like poorhouse is about to receive one more former NBA player.
