    Default Rodman Ignores Father (Philander Rodman) During Exhibition Game in Philippines

    Hmmm... I never heard of this. Related Thread: Phil Rodman's Kids... info was taken from Manila Standard Today: Link to Article

    Rodman gives dad the cold shoulder

    BEFORE the NBA Legends and the stars of Team Philippines entered the court Monday night, the center of attraction was not Dennis “Bad Boy” Rodman, in whose moniker the exhibition game was named after.

    All eyes were on Philander Rodman Jr., the father of the former Chicago Bull, as he entered the Big Dome and settled to his ringside seat. He was accompanied by a couple of bodyguards. TV crews from various networks focused their cameras on him and got brief interviews. Unfortunate were those, who were asked to pay before being granted a short chat.

    And why so much fuss about Philander Rodman? He has been staying in Angeles City with a Filipina wife, his fourth after earlier bonds that included Dennis’ mother Sherly.

    Philander was hoping to talk with Rodman, who was only three years old when he left their home and never came back.

    But Philander wouldn’t have that opportunity. After downing several cans of beer, which were left scattered under his seats, he left the venue, shouting and cursing his son.

    Dennis was immediately escorted to the dugout by his body guards and the event’s security personnel. For Dennis, he would rather focus on what he really came for—play basketball.

    The role player that he is, Rodman was hardly an offensive factor in the USA Legends’ 102-110 loss to Team Pilipinas, but he did come up with a game-high 16 rebounds, just a shade over the 15 boards of Asi Taulava of the host squad.

    “The Team (Pilipinas) was good. I thank you for the hospitality,” said Dennis after the game, already dressed up on the way back to his hotel.
    Obviously, he still harbors ill feelings toward his father. The feeling, after the snub, is now mutual.

    Meanwhile, the heated battle for better positions in the wildcard phase resumes today as the 2006 Gran Matador PBA Philippine Cup showcases three teams in contention and another wanting to keep its head above water.

    One can sense that Dennis Rodman was a bit pissed late in the game before his father was already making a scene.
