1 Dennis Rodman
Dennis Keith Rodman is an American retired professional basketball player who played for the Detroit Pistons, San Antonio Spurs, Chicago Bulls, Los Angeles Lakers, and Dallas Mavericks in the National Basketball Association.
Best in the history because of rebound rate, a stat that counts how many rebounds he got according to the minutes he played, and the number of rebounds available (missed shots of both teams)
His average equals Chamberlain and Russel's best years
The Worm was tenacious. He knew he couldn't shoot a ball to save his life so he makes up for it in his ruthless, aggressive, addiction to getting the ball back and giving it to his scorers. Dennis Rodman was beyond a shadow of a doubt one of the best defenders shot blockers and rebounders ever even with his shorter height. He was a lion
He is number one because of his height as 6'7 and he grab ball with the 7footers guys. And hard work. To get the ball.. Wilt. Is to tall and also bill... That's why for me rodman is the first in the list
He was absolutely the best. He made rebounding an art form and made the Hall of Fame primarily on those skills alone. Traveling to North Korea? He means no harm. Rodman craves attention. Always has, always will.

This is legit crazy. Dude in his last year at age 36 he averaged 18.6 rebounds per game. Seriously and he is not number 1?
Dennis rodman is pretty good with rebounding but wilt literally is a beast with grabbing a rebound. HE NEEDS TO BE NUMBER 1!
uve got to be kidding me? wilt has to be number one.... wilt= rebounding machine...
Wilt Chamberlain would chew up and spit out tiny pieces of Dennis Rodman.
Chamberlain set the NBA record of 55 rebounds in a game against possibly the best defender of all time, Bill Russell.
