Kerr tells great story of Rodman taking pride in not scoring

Warriors head coach Steve Kerr and Dennis Rodman were teammates for three seasons with the Chicago Bulls, from 1995-1998, winning three NBA championships alongside Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen.

In joining KNBR's "Tolbert, Krueger and Brooks" on Friday, Kerr told a great story about just how little Rodman cared about scoring during his NBA career.

"I think he took great pride in not scoring, it was really bizarre," Kerr said. "I mean when we were in Chicago together, he would have games where he would get an offensive board and literally have a layup and he would just throw it back out, I think hoping that we would miss another shot so he could get another one."

Rodman had an incredible run in which he led the NBA in rebounding over seven consecutive seasons, never averaging fewer than 14.9 per game. But over his three seasons in Chicago playing with MJ and Kerr, Rodman scored just 5.2 points per game.

Arguably the NBA's most unique star ever, Rodman was a legendary defender and rebounder, but simply didn't look to score the ball much.

Kerr and the rest of the Bulls had to appreciate all the extra opportunities they got on the offensive end thanks to Rodman's relentless pursuit of boards.
