The Chicago Bulls turned Dennis Rodman from a heated rival to a beloved star in the city of Chicago when they brought him in.
Some people might have watched the ESPN 30 for 30 “Long Gone Summer” last night and didn’t really like it. It was on Sammy Sosa of the Chicago Cubs and Mark McGwire of the St. Louis Cardinals in their chase for the single-season home run record in 1998. It was on the sloppy side and it really made us appreciate “The Last Dance” documentary on the 1997-98 Chicago Bulls. The dust settled from that documentary now but one thing has me thinking about a forgotten topic.
Dennis Rodman was a big part of the Bulls dynasty in the second half. People in Chicago love him and rightfully so because he was so good for our hometown team. It is just a bit strange because of the fact that he was a bitter rival before his arrival in the windy city. He literally went from foe to friend in just a few quick seasons.
