I was reading an article about collegiate basketball in the U.S. via www.slamonline.com when I stumbled upon on a picture/wallpaper of one of my favorite NBA Star no other than Dennis “The Worm” Rodman, that puts D unto my dictionary, the art of Defense and rebounding. Basketball fans all know that he is a bad boy on the court and the only player that can guard all 5 positions. He popularized the quote “Defense is the Best Offense” in basketball. My favorite movies of his are “Simon Sez” and “Double Team” with Jean-Claude Van Damme where he uttered this quote. If haven’t watched it start looking for it.
SlamOnline.com article say’s “Dennis Rodman’s had a good 2011. In April, his No. 10 jersey retired by the Detroit Pistons, he turned 50 in May, and in August, he is the inductee into the Hall of Fame, delivering a tearful speech while he stood draped in a bedazzled blazer and covered in piercings. As only The Worm could. His personality made him an international sensation, so it comes as no surprise that our friend Dariusz Ejkiewicz over in Poland wanted to immortalize his likeness with a dope desktop wallpaper. Dariusz tells us: “He played so great for so many years that I figured he needed some good artwork to capture all those years. The wallpaper features each one of his NBA chapters, as well as his biggest achievements (championships, rebound titles). The whole concept was to show Dennis just as he was: wild, colorful and interesting. The lettering on the work inspired by his tattoos.””
