Dennis Rodman’s son, Dennis Rodman Jr.
Although Dennis Rodman’s idea of inheriting his genes may shock some people, Rodman’s only son did well.
Yes, he has games.
Dennis Rodman Jr, a 6-foot-5 wing, completed his freshman season in Washington State earlier this year.
Previously, he played at JSerra Catholic High School in San Juan Capistrano, California. He averaged 24.2 points and 8.9 rebounds in his third year.
Rodman Jr. was a high school star, but after jumping to Washington State and Pac-12 basketball, he had to make adjustments.
The 19-year-old freshman averaged only 1.7 points and 1.9 rebounds in 11.9 minutes per game.
But Rodman Jr still has many improvements.
He said that improving the handling and agility of the ball is essential to take the game to a new level.
Just don’t expect his game to look like his father’s.
Rodman Jr told Prep Hoops: “I have been trying to prove that I am my own player, not like my father.”
“I don’t want my father’s shadow on me. I just want to go out and play.”
One of the biggest differences between Dennis and DJ is the ability of young Rodman to shoot, which is one of the most powerful aspects of his game.
He is also more focused play Ball instead of running off the court.
DJ is still determined to match his father’s unremitting efforts and strength, but he wants to do it his own way.
Last year he said: “I know he is like that, everyone talks about him like this.”
“But it makes me want to be someone else. I want to have the kind of aggressiveness, tenacity and tenacity he has, but I want to show it in a different way.”
Who knows, 2020-21 may just be his year.
