Default Re: Kenneth Faried...new Dennis Rodman?

In terms of emotion hustle energy rebounding he's definitely similar to Rodman
I don't think he can ever be as good defensively, especially since i don't see him guarding perimeter players but he's a good offensive player something Rodman never was

That's actually not bad. He's not undersized or athletic tho. But I can see that. Takes a lot of charges.

he's very athletic for his size. How many big guys do you see running down the court with the ball and go behind the back to avoid defender and go for a lay up or dunk?

Very athletic is a stretch. He's a decent athlete, but he's not elite. But running the floor has more to do with his mentality. It's something the Celtics would probably love.


I know the Celtics are happy to have Jeff Green. But I wonder if they'd make that trade.

Don't know what his potential is, but he has passed KD to become my 2nd favorite player to watch.

Fantastic player and Denver looks like a great team this year.

In shoes, while short, Rodman was taller than Jordan and the same height as Pippen. Faried seems even shorter which makes him so impressive.

I just don't know how much upside he has though. His game is 100% effort and athleticism, so I don't know if his game will age well.

Rodman could defend.... up to 5 positions...

...and some people may average the rebounds he did but nobody was more relentless on trying to grab loose balls than Rodman, he didnt give a damn about getting fouled out/technicals/fines/fighting every single game trying to catch loose balls and even risk his own body (and life? :P):




and even risk other peoples well being trying to grab them:

Faried is no less relentless. His energy is greater than Rodman's. Rodman may dive into the stands, but Faried hasn't yet had to. His energy wins the ball before that point. And he will be a great defender. Just not the best defensive PF ever, which Rodman arguably is...



Above comment is ignorant.

he might not be the next rodman, but he's a star in the making

his offensive touch is very underrated.
