If I had to pick someone in the league today who can come closest to the worm it would be this guy.

Last year as a rookie: 22 mins, 10 pts, 7.7 rebs, 1 block
This year : 26 mins, 13.2 points, 10 rebs

He can guard multiple positions including swing players. Doesn't have much of a post game but can knock down an open 15 footer with some regularity. This guy's rebounding and energy is off the charts

I'll wait and see how he develops first before calling him next Rodman.Rodman was a very special player.

I wouldn't go that far. Defensively he's not close to Rodman. I see him more as Joakim Noah with more speed and athleticism.

Nobody will ever be another Dennis Rodman that guy was a freak of nature..... Faried is just a good role player right now for the nuggets... he has a lot of holes in his offense.... he has no post game and he CAN NOT hit that mid range jumper consistently but has a lot of potential to be a great PF

Idk if he's gonna be the next Rodman but you do realize all those knocks against Faried are things Rodman was bad at too you know, so why name those things when they don't even further your point.

I agree with MDI if I had to pick one player to be like the next Rodman it would be Faried

Reading comprehension did I say he would be?

I said if I had to choose a current player most like Rodman it would be Faried

Rodman was one of a kind. I can't think of any player that's like him on or off the court

still not sure if he has the chance to be a rodman type player, he obvoiusly plays with alot of energy and hustle. He is a good rebounder.

but rodman was sick. i still will give it some time before i put him in rodman category.

Include "psychological tactics against opponents" to faried's game, and he'll be close to rodman.

anyone who had doubts just had to watch the first half of heat vs. nuggets. this guy is rodman 2.0. identical height and play style. i think i said he had rodman potential when he was in the draft.

i can't wait until this guy averages 15+ boards a game. it's gonna happen
