I got this off a SN poll on ESPN
Who was the better skill position player?
Reggie Miller as a shooter
Dennis Rodman as a rebounder
Much to my surprise, the majority of people who took the poll believed that Miller was the better skill position player. I completely disagree and believe Rodman was a far superior skill position player than Reggie Miller.
We all know that Reggie had the total 3 point record until Ray Allen topped him this month. Reggie's record was a great accomplishment until you realize that he took more 3 point shots than anyone in the NBA yet only managed to shoot .395 from the 3 point line, which is only good for 43rd all time.
Rodman only ranks 22nd all time in total rebounds but is the all time leader in one important statistic, Total Rebounding Percentage. For his career, Rodman grabbed an astonishing 23.4% of all the available rebounds when he was on the floor. Pair that with him leading the NBA in rebounds per game for almost an entire decade (1990-1998) and you are looking at the greatest rebounder of all time.

so i'm going to say this..
John Stockton was better at assists than Rodman Rebounds..

I don't really know why you called this a homer pick. I was simply trying to find someone who could justify Miller as a better skill position player than Rodman. Obviously there are people out there who believe this if you go by the ESPN SN poll I was referring to.
You quote my "titbit" for some unknown reason, but I'll let you know that I was using that to refer to the absurdity of fans believing that Miller was a better skill position player than Rodman.
This TD has nothing to do with John Stockton.
If you would like to forfeit and debate who you would rather have on your team, Rodman or Miller, I would gladly TD with you.

Looks like this TD went down in flames. Thanks PCH for bringing nothing to the table, at least for once you had an entire argument with no broken English.
