Kerr on whether he remembers another team went small to get better defensively: “When I played in Chicago, that was an excellent defensive team and we put Rodman at the 5 sometimes. And I’d usually be off the floor (smiles). “And we’d have, like, Harper, Jordan, Pippen, Rodman and maybe Toni Kukoc or another wing guy. And that team was phenomenal defensively. “I think Draymond has a lot of Dennis Rodman in him. He defies positions, he guards anybody, he’s quick enough to stay in front of point guards; he’s big and strong and tough at the rim and rebounds like crazy. “Again, this is the way the league is changing–I mean, Brooklyn has entirely changed their style since the beginning of the year when we played them. They’re playing one big and four smalls and they’re switching everything on the perimeter. San Jose Mercury-News

“I’m not concerned by that,” Rivers said. “I’ve seen Shaq [Shaquille O’Neal] win titles, Bill Russell win titles, Dennis Rodman win titles. So there’s a lot of guys that have missed free throws and won a lot of NBA titles, so that’s not a concern for me at all. What D.J. does for our team is far more valuable than those missed free throws. “I can’t remember the last time he didn’t [have energy for us]. He plays with great spirit and plays hard pretty much every night and he does everything right for us. I agree with Jeff Van Gundy, he should just go walk out on the All-Star Game and go play. Just start playing. Nobody’s going to tell him to get off [the court]. So I think he should just go do it.” Boston Globe

Sanders quickly went from being hailed as a foundational piece for the Bucks to being derided as untradable. He went from being a potential Defensive Player of the Year candidate to a guy who barely contributed thanks in part to a thumb injury he sustained on the same night he was caught on tape heaving alcohol bottles at strangers. He went from being an intimidating paint presence to a player whose season slipped away amid locker-room squabbles and confrontations with referees. How did Sanders get to the point where he was drawing comparisons with Metta World Peace and Dennis Rodman? “If you want to get to know a person, Sanders said, "talk to the person.” Sports Illustrated

Former NBA All-Star Kenny Anderson says Sony Pictures absolutely did the right thing by pulling "The Interview" out of theaters ... and adds he can't figure out why they made it in the first place. Kenny actually met Kim Jong-un when he went to North Korea in January as part of Dennis Rodman's goodwill team of ex-NBA players. He tells TMZ Sports ... "I was trippin' when I saw the movie preview. Why would they want to ruffle their feathers? They already hate America." TMZ.com

"If I know Phil [Jackson, Knicks team president], he just feels like [crap] right now," Rodman told reporters at a promotional event in Manhattan. "I think he just feels like, 'Wow, I thought I came here to do a great job and revitalize the city of New York.' He didn't expect this. "He didn't expect this. I saw him a couple of times on TV when I was in L.A., and I'm like, I know what you feel like, Phil. You came to be the savior and all of a sudden it's like, ugh. Then you went and got Derek Fisher. Really, is he coaching? Is Derek Fisher coaching? I don't get it. I don't know what's up with that team, man. You've got Carmelo and after that who else do you got? ESPN.com

"They're not running the triangle. Derek Fisher's not really coaching. I know Phil is trying to throw his input in the background, but who expected this from Phil? They expected him, we're going to give you $15 million a year for the next six years and this team is -- wow -- they might not even make the playoffs." ESPN.com

The Knicks are struggling as they learn Phil Jackson's triangle offense and Dennis Rodman, once a key piece of some of Jackson's championship teams, doesn't get it. "I learned that in probably 15 minutes when I was in Chicago," the former NBA bad boy/rebound machine said Tuesday morning at an appearance in Manhattan. "It's not that difficult. It's a triangle. "Everybody has an opportunity to touch the ball and shoot it. It seems like it goes back to Carmelo Anthony and then everything stops. What are you going to do?" New York Daily News
