Bad As I Wanna Be


The book takes place in Dallas, Texas where Dennis Rodman lived while he was a kid, Detroit, Michigan where Dennis Rodman played basketball for the Detroit Pistons, San Antonio, Texas where Dennis Rodman played basketball for the San Antonio Spurs, and Chicago, Illinois where Dennis Rodman is currently playing for the Chicago Bulls.


Dennis Rodman. A pro basketball player who plays for the Chicago Bulls. He averages 18.7 rebounds a game which 90% of the time is the best in the NBA. He is currently making 10 million dollars a year. He is divorced and has a daughter named Alexis. He says Alexis is the only reason he is here today.


On April of 1993 Dennis Rodman sat in his pick-up truck with a gun in his lap deciding whether he should kill himself. He was in depression at the time because the Detroit Pistons were doing very poorly that year considering they were Champions of the World just three years before that. The NBA had changed Dennis Rodman into someone he didn’t even know. It seemed as though Dennis spent his life trying to be what others wanted him to be. Once he realized he had to start living for himself, people perceived him as being rebellious and as most people say weird. Dennis Rodman just wants everyone to know who he really is and to accept him for himself and to let him do his job.


I learned that Dennis Rodman is not as crazy as everyone thinks he is. He is actually a very normal person. I think the reason this book was released is because Dennis Rodman has a very interesting life. People want to know what it is like to be Dennis Rodman.


I think this was a excellent book. The reason why I say that is because Dennis Rodman was not afraid nor ashamed to say anything, he let it all go as he usually does.

I would recommend this book to anyone that finds Dennis Rodman interesting and to anyone who is 14 to adult because of the language Dennis Rodman uses in the book.
