When Dennis Rodman was in his prime, he was one of the most polarizing figures in all of sports. When the man they called “The Worm” was heading to your city, the crowds always got a bit bigger that night.
Now, on the heels of ESPN’s new 30 for 30 release, “Rodman: For Better or Worse,” the former NBA bad boy is back in the spotlight!
Rodman loves Jaeger
Anyone who follows the NBA or is a fan of the Chicago Bulls or Detroit Pistons knows Dennis Rodman walks to the beat of his own drum. The man liked to party and he didn’t care who knew it.
One of the reasons Rodman didn’t care if his employer at the time knew how much he loved to live it up, was because Rodman knew the next day he would once again dominate at his job. Rodman was one of the best defenders to ever play the game of basketball and nobody out hustled him in getting rebounds.
While many coaches and owners would turn the other cheek when it came to Rodman’s nightlife, some things that were revealed last night during the debut of “Rodman: For Better or Worse,” left even the biggest party-goers shocked.
It appears that Rodman loves his Jaeger!
My biggest question after watching the great Rodman 30 for 30 is how in the world did Rodman survive doing 40 shots of Jager in one night?

During the ESPN 30 for 30 “Rodman: For Better or Worse” it was revealed that one night “The Worm” got a bit carried away while partying and started doing shots of Jager. No big deal, right?
When all was said and done, Rodman kicked back 40 shots – yes, 40 shots! He is lucky nothing serious happened to him, but back then, that is just the way Rodman rolled.
The ESPN 30 for 30 “Rodman: For Better or Worse” is a must-see for all fans. It covers everything in his wild and crazy life – including when he got married before a huge book signing.
"That was the beginning of the rockstar Dennis Rodman."

Of course, we all remember who the bride was!
Dennis Rodman net worth
So how much is Dennis Rodman worth in 2019? That question is a debatable one. Celebrity Net Worth’s website indicates that Rodman is only worth $500,000.
What we do know is that back in 2012, in what played out in the public eye, Rodman appeared in court because he owed over $800,000 in child support. At the time, his lawyers claimed he was unable to pay.
This is hard to believe considering the big money Rodman made throughout his career. Sportrac indicates the Rodman earned $27,406,176 during his time in the NBA. He also made millions in endorsement deals as well.
