Dennis Rodman: I would have had Draymond Green ‘eating out of my hands’
Dennis Rodman is widely considered to be one of the best defensive NBA players of all time, but Draymond Green believes he is better on that side of the ball than the Chicago Bulls legend and anyone else who has ever played. Not surprisingly, Rodman finds that laughable.
In an appearance on ESPN’s “First Take” Friday, Rodman was asked one of the most popular hypothetical questions NBA fans pose, which is how today’s Golden State Warriors would stack up against Michael Jordan’s 1990s Bulls. Rodman confidently said Kevin Durant would “have a hard time” with Scottie Pippen and added that he would have no problem shutting down “that Green guy.”
"He'd be eating out of my hands. Keep getting your teeth straight and listen to your momma.”

“He’d be eating out of my hands,” Rodman said. “Keep getting your teeth straight, honey, and listen to your momma.”
For those who don’t get the reference, Green and his mother star in a commercial for the Smile Direct Club, and Rodman must be familiar with it.
It should be noted that Rodman went on to call Green a “great defender” and said he has plenty of respect for his game. However, he clearly feels the 1990s Bulls would have no problem taking down any of the Warriors teams from the past few seasons. He certainly isn’t the first prominent former NBA player to share that opinion.
