Default Dennis Rodman being inducted into Basketball Hall of Fame

The big yearly event is Friday.

Rodman plans to do it in style, of course. Skim read this: http://www.insidehoops.com/blog/?p=8168

What are your thoughts on Rodman in terms of his basketball career? Are you good with him making the Hall?

He's bigger than the NBA. But not too big for the Hall of Fame.

I fell in love with this analysis of how good he was:

Like art, he'll never be completely understood. Let's at least remember him.

Nice. Take some pics if you can.

Rodman definately deserves to be in the hall. And he's probably the greatest defender ever. As well as rebounder.

Greatest rebounder of all time, arguably best defender of all time.

Of course he deserves it.

IMO the greatest pure re-bounder in the history of the game. You have two guys playing basketball, one is 6'0 and the other is 6'9. The 6'9 man camps in the middle, but does not get into good position, has soft hands, but he uses his advantages of intimidation in the paint and strength to still get 10 rebounds. The 6'0 guy crashes the boards, always boxes his man out on defensive rebounds, uses timing and hustle to get 5 rebounds even though he rarely camps inside the paint. The 6'0 man is a better rebounder to me, but every team still needs a 6'9 guy. Rodman to me was a combination of the best of both of these two type of players. He intimidated with his defense, but his timing, IQ, strength, and feel for getting rebounds was un-paralled. Russell, Chamberlain... all have cases for best rebounding against Rodman but to me Rodman will always be the best. He wasn't getting his rebounding numbers against inferior competition, he was boxing out and grabbing his boards against some of the best bigs in the history of the game... in an era that is arguably the best era of big men in the history of the game.

Rodman

Holy shit. If I could rep you, I'd rep you every day for a year for this link.

This is the best thing I've ever seen.

Rodman is king of basketball.

I remember when he broke in with the pistons, and he would have stats like 18 mins played and 11 rebounds. None of the announcers could make sense of his game.
