MONTERREY, Mexico -- Former NBA star Dennis Rodman thinks his bad-boy image is hurting his chance of a comeback.
"They think I'm uncoachable and I don't know why," Rodman said Friday. "I'm just a free and independent person."
Rodman, 43, hasn't played pro basketball since 2000 when he was waived by the NBA's Dallas Mavericks after a 29-day stint with the team. He was let go
a day after he criticized owner-in-waiting Mark Cuban.
Rodman is in Monterrey to play two games with the city's Fuerza Regia team.
"I'm ready to come back," Rodman said. "I'm in good shape and I know I can do well."
Rodman was in Colorado last month to practice with the Denver Nuggets. General manager Kiki Vandeweghe would not comment on Rodman's situation.
