There will be another Shaq before there is another Rodman.

Rudy Gay and Kobe have actually made the same expression before.

You are right Omer Asik is very similar to RODMAN.He is probably the best rebounder in the game.He might be the worst offensive player(starting center).

Interestingly enough just like rodman he is a very good passer.

But his paint defense is more impressive than his man to man defense.

OMG neither guy is anything even remotely close to Rodman. NOTHING! My sister is closer to Rodman than Asik or Faried and I don't even have a sister.

Rodman was ave 18 rebounds a GAME! He grabbed 34 rebounds in a single game! He was also 6'6" and could guard any position on the floor.

Can we just close this thread already???

Do you even know wtf rebounding is all about? It's about positioning and who wants it more. There's no f*ckin technique to rebounding and kids learn how to box out right from the start. Dude is a great rebounder. Watch some more Nuggets games.

The thing that relates him to Rodman imo is that he isn't too tall yet he brings down the boards in bunches. Both have a sort of willey, gritty, bouncy, electric style, though the defense certainly isnt there and Faried will probably never match Rodman's intangibles which have an un-quantifiable but certainly noticeable effect on opponents.

Another question to ask is what Faried's ceiling is. He continues to exceed expectations; he is one of the most exciting players in the league right now.

Dude in terms of rebounding rate Omer Asik has been at the top since his rookie season.Now that he is getting minutes,he is showing what he can do.He cant score to save his life just like rodman but he can pass the ball well just like rodman.He is a very good defender actually one of the best paint defenders this is the difference in their games.Rodman is again very good defender actually he might be the best defender and most versatile.So they are as very close the way they earn their money.

Asik will probably lead the league in rebounds if he continues to get these kind of minutes

There's more to being similar than having similar skills. Just because he and Rodman both were rebounding and defensive specialists doesn't mean they play anything alike. I won't claim to be an expert on Rodman, but it seems to me that Faried is a much more similar player in terms of being an undersized power forward who is a tenacious rebounder and an exceptional athlete. Rodman was obviously a fantastic defender, which Faried isn't, but at the same time we're comparing a second year guy to someone who everyone thinks about his prime. I'm guessing young Rodman wasn't the defender he became in his later years (though still better than Faried is now).

Eh... I doubt that. I could see another 6'6", 6'7" inch guy grabbing 18 rebounds a game and playing terrific versatile defense before I see another 7'1" 325 lb behemoth who could do what Shaq could do and be as nimble as he was.

Again, those who think he's a shit defender don't watch him. He was great last night.


I knew he was a great defender in college, but I didn't know he was the DPOTY in America lol. Is that accurate? He'll be an elite defender.
