Kendrick Lamar unexpectedly teams up with Australian psychedelic rock band Tame Impala for this new record entitled “Backwards.”
"We were standing in the lay-up line, warming up and shooting, and Rodman was standing back and watching everybody shoot. I said ‘Hey, come on, you have to participate; everybodys shooting lay-ups, you have to shoot lay-ups too.’ And he said, ‘I’m just watching the rotations on the basketball.’ I said, ‘Excuse me?’ He said ‘Like, when you shoot, your ball spins three times in the air. Joe’s sometimes has 3 1/2 or four times.’
"Thats how far Rodman had taken rebounding, to a totally different level, like off the charts. He knew the rotation of every person that shot on our team - if it spins sideways, where it would bounce, how often it would bounce left or right. He had rebounding down to a science, and I never heard anyone think or talk about rebounding and defense the way he could break it down.
"When you talk about basketball IQ, I’d put Rodman at a genius level." (source)
