A lil’ bit of basketball tea was spilled during last night’s episode of The Last Dance, ESPN’s docuseries about layup legend, Michael Jordan. Jordan recalled a moment during the Chicago Bull’s 1997-98 season when he had to drag his eccentric power forward, Dennis Rodman, from a wild weekend in Vegas with then girlfriend, Carmen Electra.
A rebellious and burned-out Rodman had 48 hours to go to Vegas to clear his mind, but as expected, the rebound master did not return by the deadline. Carmen described what ensued that weekend.
“It was on, the party was starting right away. We’d go to his favorite restaurant, then we’d go to a nightclub, then we’d go to after hours, it didn’t stop,” Carmen dished—adding that “it was definitely an occupational hazard to be Dennis’ girlfriend. He was wild.”
When Dennis didn’t return, Michael Jordan went to go “get his ass out of bed.” “Come on, we got practice,” Jordan told a disheveled Dennis while Carmen Electra hid under the covers behind the couch. Jordan wouldn’t spill the tea on “what was in his bed, where he was, blah blah blah” but oh, one can imagine!
What do you think of Dennis Rodman’s wild weekend in Vegas?
