Former NBA player Dennis Rodman recently compared his experiences playing with Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen on the Chicago Bulls to his time with Shaquille O’Neal and Kobe Bryant on the Los Angeles Lakers. He noted that there was less drama with the Bulls and that if they got upset, it was with themselves. During his brief tenure with the Lakers in the 1998-99 season, Rodman helped the team go on a 10-game winning streak but was eventually released due to reports of excessive partying and showing up late to practice. Rodman later revealed that he couldn't handle Shaq and Kobe's constant bickering, which demotivated him off the court. Despite his short stint with the Lakers, Rodman averaged 11.2 rebounds in 28.6 minutes at the age of 37. The Lakers soon brought in Phil Jackson as head coach, leading them to three straight championships with O'Neal and Bryant.
