How about that smirk on Dennis Rodman’s face as he watches Eugene Amos roil in pain after a kick to the groin?

The former Chicago Bulls forward kicked the Target Center cameraman 18 years ago today.

The low blow ended up costing Rodman roughly $1 million in salary during an 11-game suspension. Rodman also paid Amos $200,000.

Guys, would you trade a kick to the groin for $200,000 and a story to tell your friends for the rest of your life?

Keep in mind, Amos had to be carted off the floor by medical personnel.

Amos was interviewed by a blogger in 2011 and said he tries to keep a sense of humor about it:

I just try to take one day at a time, says Amos, Jr. Sometimes I get recognized, yeah. I try to have a sense of humor about it.

In an interview sometime down the road, Rodman said “I could have done a lot worse things than that besides kicking somebody — I could have punched somebody in the face.”
