Kenneth Faried...new Dennis Rodman?
 
Guy is crazy relentless. 5 offensive rebound per game thus far.

And is much better offensively.

Reggie Evans might be the closest thing to Rodman in the NBA right now, and even then - he's a poor man's Rodman.

Not even close. Beastly rebounder but shit defender and more capable offensive player. Basically all they have in common is rebounding. Hell Omer Asik= Rodman more than Faried.

Best part of this whole thread is Rudy's Gay's reaction.

Rudy Gay is up there with Kobe in "GOAT facial expressions". But while Kobe has intense and intimidating expressions, Rudy merely showcases cute, innocent and outrageously hilarious moments that put a smile on your face.

You never saw Rodman play...there is no comparison in the league right now

Ben Wallace is the last player to ever come close

No comparison. Rodman was a complete animal. This guy Faried just jumps around a lot and looks like he's doing more than he actually is.

Faried is like a more athletic version of Zach Randolph without the post game.

Dude has been beasting. He's a double double machine.

Rodman is the best rebounder I've seen in my life time, and one of the great defensive players ever.

Faried is no where near a great rebounder or defender. Just a high energy guy.

Faried's comparison to Zach Randolph starts and ends with double doubles, and maybe being black.



Ben Wallace is like Rodman in that he was a great rebounder and great defender, who didn't score. Actual similarities are non-existent.



Kenneth Faried is a lot like Rodman, except he can rack up some points.



Now, this idea that he can't defend is just stupid. He's still raw and it's more visible due to him being undersized, but he's far from a bad defender. He's a smart defender, a very good shot-blocker already, and he makes plays on D. He hustles and has good timing. He's gonna be a great defender.


He's not the passer that Rodman was (Rodman was actually a very solid passer), but he can score.
