A lot of times NBA legends or greats talk about the modern NBA, and the players in the league. Former Chicago Bulls power forward Dennis Rodman, who has won 5 NBA championships in the league (2 with the Pistons, 3 with the Bulls) had some things to say. Dennis discussed the state of the current day NBA and brought up comparisons featuring the face of the league, LeBron James, and his former teammate, Michael Jordan. While Rodman has always been known as a crazy character in the league, his comments still hold interest with the fans.

Dennis Rodman diminishes LeBron James

Again LeBron James is being compared to the man labeled the greatest of all time, Michael Jordan. This time, by one of Jordan's ex-teammates, Dennis Rodman. The notion of rest has been a hot topic as of late. Lots of basketball legends and current players, coaches, general managers, media personnel, and commentators have all been talking about it.

So Dennis let his thoughts be known about the subject, saying: "You know what, LeBron's doing one thing that I always said that Michael Jordan never did, he never rested. He played every game. LeBron has the position to do this now because they need him. The league needs him, and that's why he's doing all this crazy s*** now, like b***hing and complaining and all these bulls***".

Rodman certainly let his opinion be known. Not afraid to critique the King of the NBA, although his career wasn't nearly the level of the man he's speaking poorly of. Dennis has always been known for saying crazy things and rocking crazy appearances. You can add his recent statement to the very long list.

This isn't the first time Rodman has criticized LeBron

Back in 2013, just weeks before King James proved him wrong and won his second NBA championship, Dennis Rodman made a critical statement about LBJ. Rodman talked about the physicality of the league during the times he played in comparison to the modern day NBA. When comparing the King and His Airness, he stated:

"It's not a comparison.

If LeBron was playing in the late '80s and early '90s, he would be just an average player."

A very surprising comment considering how dominant LeBron James is in today's game, to suggest he would be average in any era is crazy. Rodman also proclaimed that LeBron's success in today's NBA comes "very easy." Sitting here as a fan, I can imagine we all want to see LeBron and Dennis go one on one, to settle this. And see if Dennis can back up his talk.
