Dennis Rodman, Class of ‘11 to enter Basketball Hall of Fame
“To me, the Hall wasn’t anything I expected or really consumed myself with, you know what I mean?” he said. “When your career is over, you can’t change anything and to me I felt like I received so much over the years playing basketball that to get even more was not even on my mind.”
Any musicians on your list, Chris?
“I’d like a few, but I don’t know many,” he said. “Satellite radio, ‘70s and ‘80s.”
“I don’t know that it makes it any more sweeter,” he said of overcoming that to reach the Hall. “It’s part of the journey. Every player here has their journey and at some point in everyone’s life someone’s going to deal with something.”
“To me, the way I live my life on a daily basis is as gratifying to me as being here in the Hall of Fame,” he added. “If I never did, never mind being in the Hall of Fame, I wouldn’t be here, period.”
Sabonis, one of the world’s best big men long before finally coming to the NBA to play for Portland, carried a small flag of his native Lithuania that looked even tinier in his giant hands.
Edwards was previously enshrined in the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame, the National High School Sports Hall of Fame, Georgia Sports Hall of Fame and US Olympic Hall of Fame. She’s now coaching the WNBA’s Tulsa Shock, who played at Seattle later Thursday.
“If Dennis wears a dress better than me, I’m going to have to beat him before we leave here,” she joked.
Rodman, who once wore a wedding dress to a book signing, said he won’t wear a dress Friday. But it’ll be better than Thursday’s getup.
“This is nothing. Tomorrow’s going to be way different. It’s going to be totally out there. You’ll think Elton John’s on the stage. That’s what it’s going to be like .But it’s going to be in all good taste fun.”
