Default Dennis Rodman on the 2nd three-peat Bulls was so overrated

Dennis Rodman was so overrated to have been called one of the "Big 3" of the 2nd three-peat bulls, this is what Rodman averaged in 1996, 1997, and 1998 playoffs:

1996:
7.5ppg, 13.7rpg, 2.1apg, 48.5%FG

1997:
4.2ppg, 8.4rpg, 1.4apg, 37.0%FG

1998:
4.9ppg, 11.8rpg, 2.0apg, 37.1%FG


And here is what Pau Gasol averaged in the 2008, 2009, and 2010 playoffs:

2008:
16.9ppg, 9.3rpg, 4apg, 53%FG

2009:
18.3rpg, 10.8rpg, 2.5apg, 58%FG

2010:
19.6ppg, 11.1rpg, 3.5apg, 53.9%FG


The second three-peat Bulls has the WEAKEST frontcourt in the history of NBA out of all championship teams, and it's amazing how they could of threepeated against opponents such as Shaquille O'Neal, Shawn Kemp, Karl Malone, Patrick Ewing, Alonzo Mourning

why are you comparing a 2nd option to a non option/rebound specialist?

2010:
19.6ppg, 11.1rpg, 3.5apg, 53.9%FG

what do those numbers look like in the Finals for each season, and who did each guy guard primarily (and what were each matchup's numbers)?

He was still a fantastic player, he just wasn't quite the same defensive player he once was.

stats aren't everything, you obviously weren't old enough to watch the bulls, coz rodman bought a lot more than stats to the team.

Within each of the Rodman titles he played with different impacts.
Having watched many Bulls games in that period I can tell you the stats dont tell the story.
He was very different to Pau, hard to compare.

Rodman played some good D against Shaq.

But yeah, it's pretty shocking how teams that were more talented than the Bulls with a better frontline lose to them. Look at the whole 1996 playoffs. They had to go through Mourning, Ewing, and Shaq.

When people asked Magic and Bird about the Bulls that year, they said that their frontline is their weakness, but the Bulls went through dealt with the top centers and good frontlines every single round. It was amazing.

Even more amazing is that I don't know where they get their offense because they offense get really ugly at times since they couldn't make anything. They definitely took the principle of defense wins games. But they are very lucky to have Rodman. Rodman with the hustle plays and rebounds really helped them win games.

The difference of course was that Rodman put up those rebounding numbers in 32 minutes a game to Gasol's 40 and was the anchor to the Bulls #1, #3 and #4 ranked defense.

Dennis Rodman is one of the best bball players ever and that was before even going to the Bulls. Only downside was his mental flakiness.

Of course if you all you care about is step back 20 footers, well...

The Bulls don't beat the Sonics without Dennis.
