Not really. Rodman is one of the elite defenders of all-time so I don't get what you're saying.
No one is going to regularly shut him down. But Rodman is one of the very best defenders of all-time and he absolutely could be put on Lebron and more than likely would be, unless Pippen was on the court with him.
