Not sure what his “job” or bussiness is now, but I’m guessing Mr.Rodney White runs his own bussiness. Or he has a habit in which he came up with a way to save money, since he’s no longer making NBA money.
White was the #9 draft pick in the 2001 draft for the Detroit Pistons. White hasn’t been in the league since 2005 after stints with the Pistons, Nuggets, 76ers and Warriors.
Jocksandstilettojill, pointed out a good point when she said this is why it’s SO important for athletes to have a transition plan. You can’t play D-league or get signed overseas for the rest of your life if the NBA doesn’t work out. What is done with all this free eduation that student “athletes” recieve right after high school? Are these degrees not put to use? Are they even doing their own work in college? Doesn’t seem to be the case.
Despite his outlandish antics over the past years, now Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman has had his jersey retired in Detroit, where he won 2 out of his five Championship titles with the Pistons. Rodman claims he doesn’t deserve to have his jersey retired. What do you think?
When told of the honor Rodman responded, “I thought it was an April Fools’ joke when they called me about it the first time,” Rodman said. “I was shocked. I don’t think I should have my jersey retired because I was probably the fifth most important guy on those teams.” Unlike most players, Rodman doesn’t receive his recognition for scoring, but moreso his contribution to defense and ability to snag boards. From 1991 until his retirement in 2000, Rodman never averaged fewer than 11.3 rebounds per game in any season. Rodman was the reason the Pistons were the team they were in the late 80’s early 90’s.
