I was looking at a different rating I keep calling it defensive rating but thats not the one, but do you honestly think his best defensive years where in Chicago?

I'm not knocking him defensively I just said his best defensive years where in Detroit. When he was in Detroit he could honestly guard multiple positions, he came here and was a good defender but he was still a shell of himself from early in his career.

Im not a bulls fan, but i think retiring a number of a guy that played a short time for your team cheapens the honor for everyone else..even my bucks retired Bob Lanier's number even though he will always be associated with the pistons. I will say that retiring rodmans number wouldnt be as bad as The Tampa Bay Rays retiring Boggs number.. that was truely embarassing

I don't know where his best years defensiveley were. I am 29 and only remember him on the Bulls, where I always thought he was an excellent defender. To be honest I can't remember much of his years prior to the bulls as I was only like 5-14 years old during that stretch and a bulls fan.

Well his best years defensively where with the Pistons, I'm not trying to insult or anything but its pretty obvious that a younger in his prime Rodman which was with the Pistons and Spurs was a better defender than he was with the Bulls. Dennis back in the day was able to guard Sg's and SF's and was defensive player of the year back to back in 90 and 91.
