Dennis Rodman, also known as ‘The Worm’, is an American professional basketball player. As of 2019, he has an estimated net worth of $12 million.
Dennis was born in Trenton, New Jersey and graduated from Rutgers University. He played for the NBA’s Chicago Bulls for two seasons (1996-1998) before being traded to the San Antonio Spurs.
In 2003, he retired from the NBA and began a professional wrestler and actor career. He was known for his time playing with the National Basketball Association’s (NBA) Detroit Pistons and Chicago Bulls and being one of the NBA’s first two-time defending champions with the Bulls in 1991 and 1992.
On May 13th, 1966, Dennis Rodman was born in Trenton, New Jersey, to Philander Rodman. He is the second youngest of eight children and grew up primarily in nearby Camden City, where he attended Pennsauken High School.
When Dennis started playing basketball at age 14 or 15 years old, people thought that he would never amount to anything because his height did not exceed 5’7″.
Growing larger as a part of his football practice, Dennis surpassed his height with new muscle mass and went on to become one of the premier rebounders in the NBA.
As part of an athletic scholarship offer at Rutgers University, Rodman grabbed a role as a starter in his freshman year, playing alongside 8-time All-Star Marcus Camby for head coach Bill Foster’s Scarlet Knights basketball team. After two seasons, he would be drafted by the Chicago Bulls.

Still, it was not to be until 2005 that Dennis would have his first starring role for a feature-length movie as Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, who rocked an exposed coke-bottle and bob doll wig for Are We There Yet, which also won him his second straight MTV Movie Award for Best Comedic Performance.
In recent years, his most notable acting project has been appearing as Michael J. Fox’s uncle Cliff Robertson on “This Is Us”, which also earned him his third consecutive MTV Movie Award for Best Comedic Performance.
