There are exactly 18.7 reasons why Dennis Rodman thinks he can play in the NBA again.

The Worm is much older now, less energetic and physically not what he used to be. But that doesn't change the fact that 13 years ago, the Piston power forward led the entire league in rebounding with 18.7 boards per game.

Last year, league MVP Kevin Garnett led the NBA in rebounding with 13.9 per game. Pistons power forward Ben Wallace led the league the year before with 15.4 per game in 2003 and 13 per game in 2000.
