Dennis Rodman won three championships with the Bulls,

Dennis Rodman won three championships with the Bulls, but Phil Jackson said he was one of his last trade targets.

The Last Dance docuseries focused on Dennis Rodman's influence in Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls' last three titles.

The Bulls needed Rodman's rebounding and defense since they didn't have a player with over 8.1 rebounds in 1994-95.

Rodman almost skipped Chicago. According to head coach Phil Jackson, he was the last player he wanted.

Chicago needed a rebounder for the 1995-96 season, its first full year with Michael Jordan returning after his almost two-year baseball break.

Scottie Pippen led the Bulls in 1994-95 with 8.1 boards per game, followed by Will Perdue with 6.7. Jordan averaged 6.9 in 17 games that season.

He began his career with the Detroit Pistons and was essential to their 1989 and 1990 championship drives,

 averaging 9.2 boards. Rodman became the NBA's greatest rebounder in 1991-92 and 1992-93, averaging 18.0 per game.

He led the NBA in rebounding again with the San Antonio Spurs in 1993-94 and 1994-95. He moved to Chicago after finding San Antonio unsuitable.
