Eugene Amos didn’t deserve to have his manhood jeopardized by Dennis Rodman.

Batty NBA Hall of Fame power forward Dennis “The Menace” Rodman kicked cameraman Eugene Amos in the ballsack during a Chicago Bulls road game against the Timberwolves at the Target Center in Minnesota 16 Years ago this Thursday on January 17, 1997.

The fiasco began when Rodman, a five-time NBA champion, who captured seven rebounding titles during his 15-year career, stumbled over Amos’ leg and landed on the hardwood.

Amos subsequently turned his camera to focus on the past banging partner of Madonna and NWO teammate of “Hollywood” Hulk Hogan.

Like a savage loon, the 6-foot-6, 220 pound Rodman responded by booting the worker in the scrotum.

After initially expressing shock, Amos agonized and crumbled to the floor.

The game was delayed roughly seven minutes while the poor bastard was placed onto a stretcher for a trip to the local hospital.

Although not slapped with a technical foul, Rodman, an alcoholic deadbeat who also happens to be a two-time All-NBA Third Team selection and one of the greatest defensive players in the annals of the sport, was suspended for 11 games and effectively docked $1 million in pay.

Amos managed to milk an additional $200,000 from Rodman in a settlement.

Clearly unhindered from the savage strike, Rodman and the Bulls went on to overcome the Utah Jazz in six-games to earn consecutive Larry O’Brien Championship Trophies.

Nearly two decades later, it remains unknown if Dennis Rodman robbed Eugene Amos of his ability to reproduce.
