    Rodman wasn't known to be even a decent scorer, shooter or playmaker, so why wouldn't whoever was his match-up double MJ.

    Legit question. I'm guessing because Scottie was an elite playmaker, so him being able to get the ball, then find Rodman open was likely, maybe?

    What's the correct answer? Am I simplifying the game too much?

    Later in his career, MJ could be tired out by physical defense, so I'd think that, that would be the best course of action.

    Rodman could legit shoot mid range he would set mean picks and get offensive rebounds for easy 2nd chance points

    MJ DIDNT STAND UP TOP
    AND DRIBBLE THE AIR OUT
    THE BALL.


    HE WAS VERY QUICK
    AND DECISIVE WITH HIS POSSESSION TIME.

    IN 98 HE ONLY HAD THE BALL
    FOR 3:37 SECONDS A GAME.

    Majority of the time when they double teaming players are cheating towards the open man. Back then that was illegal defense.

    Leave at the minimum a top 3 all time rebounder wide open with Jordan, Pippen, and Kukoc on the floor brehs.
