On 2 Bulls fans still love Rodman, says Rodman

  • Print

CHICAGO -- Dennis Rodman still sported numerous piercings and tattoos as he walked into the United Center. That much hadn't changed since he helped the Chicago Bulls win their final three championships in the late 1990s.

What is different is this: Rodman, the seven-time rebounding champion and two-time defensive player of the year, is now 50. And he's headed to the Hall of Fame.

"It's incredible man, the fact that people still love you, still like what you're doing," Rodman said Wednesday. He then presented the ceremonial first ball before Game 2 of the Eastern Conference final between the Bulls and Miami Heat.

Rodman's antics, different hair colours, penchant for partying and flamboyant appearance sometimes overshadowed his work as one of the game's top defensive players and rebounders at 6-foot-7.

He's still enjoying being himself. "I just go around and do my thing," he said.
