Former Chicago Bulls star Dennis Rodman is a player that constantly drew attention for his tattoos and colorful hair during his career. His was not a common look during the 1990s, which many fans appreciated. This style was put on display once again during the latest two episodes of ESPN's 10-part documentary series, The Last Dance.
This focus on Rodman meant that many fans learned something new about the former NBA star. Specifically, his dyed hair was not meant to replicate leopard print. Several close-up photos actually revealed that the "dots" in Rodman's hair were actually a multitude of 3s. This was reportedly done in order to honor Scottie Pippen's return to the starting lineup. This was a startling revelation for many fans and led to an uptick in tweets about the colorful hair.
Following Sunday's episodes of The Last Dance, numerous fans headed to social media to discuss this newfound detail about Rodman. They couldn't believe that they had grown up thinking that he had leopard hair. Others proclaimed that the Chicago Bulls roster was very tight-knit and that this dye job was a fantastic tribute.

Lol! I thought it was leopard too! It is not it’s 33 in honor of Scottie pippen’s return. So does that mean you will make 33 in your hair ? 😂— Kristen Weber (@webergirl22) April 28, 2020
BTW I was yesterday years old when I learned that those were “3s” in Dennis Rodman’s blonde hair & not leopard print. I feel like I’m not the only one either, but y’all don’t have to admit it.— Ryan Clark (@Realrclark25) April 28, 2020
And when I watched episode 3 today, I learned that the hair wasn’t leopard print - it was 33’s for Pippen’s return to the Bulls 🤦🏽♀️— Em E (@emeck15) April 27, 2020
I think outside learning Michael Jordan practically walked in on Dennis Rodman & Carmen Electra that the most wild thing I learned is Dennis’ leopard hair was actually a tribute to Scottie Pippen #LastDance pic.twitter.com/8ojXnnMMZ6— Bria McWoods (@knockonMCWOODS) April 27, 2020
Well I learned in episode 3 that those weren't leopard prints in Dennis Rodman's hair but #33's #LastDance— Monica (@Monica_AnyEvery) April 27, 2020
I always thought that was a leopard spot pattern in Dennis Rodman hair. It was 33s for Scottie Pippen #TheLastDance— Rudell Small Jr (@CoachSmall28) April 27, 2020
The 33’s leopard print hair style. Man... Long live Dennis Rodman.— Nick Malone (@yankeesman77) April 27, 2020
Also from the aforementioned SportsTicker recap: Dennis Rodman celebrated Pippen's return with 16 rebounds and a new leopard-skin dye job on his hair for the Bulls, who have won 14 straight homes games and are 17-1 at the United Center, the best home record in the league.— larryfleisher (@larryfleisher) April 27, 2020
