NBA Hall-of-Famer Dennis Rodman visited Undeniable With Joe Buck, where he opened up about a moment in April 1993 when he was found in his car outside Michigan’s the Palace of Auburn Hills with a gun on his lap.
Rodman had been struggling with depression over the departure of Detroit Pistons head coach Chuck Daly, as well as some personal family issues. In fact, Rodman boycotted the first half of the season because he felt so angry and lost.
In a moment of despair, Rodman considered taking his life, but the Pearl Jam song “Black” helped keep him from pulling the trigger. Now friends, Rodman and Eddie Vedder had met in a chance encounter at the Palace, and thankfully the lead singer suggested Rodman check out the band’s music.
Rodman did just that, saying: “I went and got their album, and I played it every day, every day, every day. So, I think that saved my life.”
Undeniable With Joe Buck airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. on Audience.
