Phil Jackson: Rodman is the greatest athlete I've ever coached
"[Rodman] could probably play a 48-minute game and play the 48th minute stronger than the first minute of the game," Jackson told the crowd at University of North Dakota. "He was that terrific an athlete."
Now before ya'll get up in arms over Phillips words and start screaming "how he gon' just diss MJ like that!?" 1st breathe and stop and then re-read what Philly said. He said "GREATEST ATHLETE" and not greatest basketball player.
You can't front on The Worm's conditioning. If it wasn't for fouls he could easily play a whole game without tuckering out towards the end.
