Exclamation Rodman: Bargnani's rebounding is sad

Informed there was a certain 7-footer who plays in Toronto who is averaging just 4.9 rebounds per game, Rodman initially responded with a ďthatís sadĒ comment.

But as far as heís concerned there is nothing Andrea Bargnani has to learn, no technique he has to master to get those numbers up so they arenít so ďsadĒ looking.

As far as Rodman is concerned all he has to do is make the effort to rebound.

ďItís a mindset,Ē Rodman said of rebounding. ďIf you want to do it, you can do it. I mean I was only 6-foot-6 and 220 and playing against guys 7-foot, 280 or 290 pounds. Itís up to you if you want to go do it. If you want the money, thatís cool but itís all about the love of the game. Itís more effort to go get the ball.Ē

Again Rodman does not speak this way to be critical of Bargnani or any other 7-footer who chooses not to rebound. Itís merely his opinion and if it upsets others then it does. Rodman has never worried about what others think of him and that hasnít changed in retirement.
