Former NBA star Kendall Gill remembered going to a strip club in the late 1990s with Dennis Rodman before his New Jersey Nets were ready to play the Chicago Bulls.
Gill told the story on NBC Sports Chicago’s Bulls Talk Pod. He said he was at the club until about 12:30 p.m. and later learned that Rodman was there until about 5 a.m.

“So I was in Scores with Dennis and Jack [Haley]and I ended up leaving because we had a match the next day. Do I need to rest a little? ” , He said. So I ended up leaving around 12:30, which is a bit late for me, but I knew one of the girls there. In fact, I knew several of them. But in particular, I said, “Look, I’m going to call you tomorrow morning. I want to know what time Dennis left. “
“So I call her after the shoot, and she says” he was there “until 4-5 in the morning. “I was like” he won’t be able to run with us tonight, we got him, “” Gill told me.

“Works like a racehorse,” said Gill of “The Worm.”
