Shaquille O'Neal says Dennis Rodman was his worst teammate: 'He was a great player, but he made it hard'

Shaquille O'Neal played for six franchises over a 20-year NBA career. That's a lot of teammates.

 Speaking on The Big Podcast with Shaq, the four-time champion and Hall of Famer revealed which one of those teammates was the worst. 

"Worst teammate? Dennis Rodman," O'Neal said. "He was a great player, but he made it hard.

 While the coaches are talking, he would jump in the shower. Cold shower. Come and give you 15-20 rebounds."

O'Neal played with some characters in his time. We know about his beef with Kobe Bryant, who we know wasn't always the easiest teammate to get along with

Still, it's pretty easy to imagine why Rodman would've been a tough guy to share a locker room with. He was past his prime when he came to the Lakers, but the antics were still front and center.
