Rodman Net Worth 2022: Professional Basketball Player

The former NBA star, actor, and political ambassador Dennis Rodman is worth a cool half a million dollars. His stint with the Pistons in the late ’80s and the Bulls in the ’90s are likely the highlights of his athletic career. Recently, he has been acting as something of a go-between for the United States and North Korea.


Rodman Early Life

Basketball player Dennis Rodman was born on May 13, 1961, in Trenton, New Jersey. According to the available evidence, Rodman is the oldest of his father’s rumored 47 offspring.

There was no misspelling there. Even more bizarre, Dennis’s father’s name, Philander, is a play on words for the name of a famous philanthropist. Shirley, Rodman’s mother, worked multiple jobs in Dallas to provide for the family when his father abandoned them and moved to the Philippines.

It wasn’t until 2012 that he saw his dad again. Following his high school graduation from South Oak Cliff, Rodman took a job as a nighttime janitor at DFW Airport. Due to his little stature, he was not allowed to try out for any high school sports teams.

But after an incredible growth surge, he reached 6 feet 7 inches and gave basketball another shot. After one semester of playing on the team, he was dismissed from Cooke County College owing to his failing grades. When he was ready to continue his education, he transferred to Southeastern Oklahoma State University, where he excelled and was named the team’s MVP.

Rodman Professional Basketball Career

The Detroit Pistons took notice of Rodman while he was still a college player. In the 1986 NBA draught, Dennis was selected by the Detroit Pistons at number three in the second round. After leaving the Pistons in 1993, he played for the Spurs, the Bulls, the Lakers, and finally the Mavericks. His professional basketball career ended after he was waived by the Chicago Bulls in 2000.

Famous for his flashy and sometimes controversial off-court conduct, Dennis Rodman (nicknamed “The Worm”) was also a formidable basketball player.

He was named to the NBA All-Star Team twice and was the league’s Rebounding Champion a record seven years in a row. Seven times he was named to the NBA’s All-Defensive First Team, and twice he took home the league’s Defensive Player of the Year trophy.

In April of 2011, his number 10 jersey was officially retired by the Pistons. In the same year, he entered the hallowed halls of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

Rodman appeared in 911 games during his 14 seasons in the NBA, amassing 6,683 points and 11,954 rebounds (or an average of 7.3 points and 13.1 rebounds per game in just 31.7 minutes per game).

Rodman Wrestling Career

As a professional wrestler, Rodman competed in WCW from 1997 to 1999. (World Championship Wrestling). Before he left basketball for good, it was only a hobby, but once he stopped playing, he got really into it. Back in July of 1997, he made his competitive debut at a Bash at the Beach tournament.

His tag team with Hulk Hogan ended in defeat at the hands of Lex Luger and The Giant. On August 1, 1997, at the Road Wild event, Hulk Hogan and Dennis Rodman teamed up to win the WCW World Heavyweight Championship for Hogan. After a couple more Bash the Beach events and a sabbatical, he returned to the WCW in 1999 to renew his feud with Randy Savage.

After a loss against Curt Henning at the i-Generation Superstars of Wrestling televised event in July 2000, Rodman announced his retirement from wrestling. While competing on Hulk Hogan’s Celebrity Championship Wrestling show in 2008, he came out of retirement. He triumphed over other competitors like Eric Esch and Dustin Diamond to take home the series title.

Rodman Personal Life

Rodman and Annie Bakes had a divorce in the early 1990s after being married for a while. Alexis, their only daughter, was born in 1988.

During a November 1998 trip to Las Vegas, Rodman wed Carmen Electra at the Little Chapel of the Flowers. Four short months later, Electra was divorce filing. The couple tied the knot in 2003. Their children were named Dennis Jr. and Trinity, and they were born to them.

His younger brother, Dennis Jr., will play college basketball for Washington State in 2019, and his older sister, Trinity, will play women’s soccer for the Cougars the following year (both in 2020). Michelle had initially filed for divorce in 2004, but the couple remained together for a long time before finally reconciling. In 2012, they decided to end their marriage.

Rodman has a history of alcoholism. While driving under the influence, he was caught in 1999 and fined $2,000. In April of 2004, he was arrested once more for DUI. In May of 2008, he checked into a treatment center in Florida.

In 2009, he relapsed and despite intervention by loved ones, he still refused to go back to rehab. He agreed to be on Dr. Drew’s Celebrity Rehab for its third season. He committed to a 21-day stay at the Pasadena Recovery Center.

After that, he moved into a sober house in the Hollywood Hills. There, he saw his mom, Shirley, again. Seven years have passed since they last spoke to each other. In January 2010, Rodman was ejected from a Los Angeles eatery for being disruptive.

After a bender that his agent, Darren Prince, described as “none of us had seen before,” Rodman checked into rehab for alcohol consumption once again in January 2014.

 Rodman Financial Problems

Dennis Rodman was charged with owing his ex-wife over $800,000 in child support and appeared in a Detroit court on March 27, 2012. Lawyers representing Rodman stated their client was penniless and unable to pay. Remember that Rodman made around $27 million in salary alone throughout his NBA career.

Numerous other sources of income, such as endorsements, book sales, and paid appearances, added significantly to his fortune. His fines and suspensions cost him a pretty penny as well. Rodman was fined $200,000 and suspended for 11 games in 1997 for kicking an official in the crotch. He lost a total of $1,000,000 in income because of the incident.
