I say apparently because the ceremony is planned for a game hosting the Bulls, with whom Rodman won three NBA titles compared with the two he won as a Piston. And it's planned for April 1. And it's Dennis Rodman. All of those things add up to a "we'll see, I guess."
But if it's true, it's pretty well deserved. Although he was and is one weird cat, Rodman's basketball abilities are rock solid. He led the league in rebounds for seven straight years, from 1991-1997, and posted leading numbers in offensive rebounds in three separate years and earned All-Defensive Team honors eight separate times and was the Defensive Player of the Year in 1990 and 1991.
And really, what better day could you pick to honor Dennis Rodman than a prank-filled one like April 1?
