The 2011 Basketball Hall of Fame induction ceremony is coming up on Friday. The Class of 2011 includes Tex Winter, Arvydas Sabonis, Chris Mullin and Dennis Rodman. Unsurprisingly, Dennis Rodman has big plans for his induction. From the Miami Herald:
Dennis Rodman told us Tuesday he will arrive at his Basketball Hall of Fame induction Friday by helicopter. He wanted to enter the Hall on a colorful float, “but they wouldn’t let me block off the street” in Springfield, Mass.
Simple. Understated. That’s Dennis Rodman.
He said he will hire acrobats to perform and “a couple of my outfits will be ‘out there.’ Whatever might be too zany is not too zany.”
All quite necessary. One final look-at-me performance by one of the greatest rebounders in NBA history.
His marketing agent, Floyd Ragland, said Rodman is spending $60,000 to fly in Penny Marshall, Howard Stern and other friends. Phil Jackson is Rodman’s presenter.
Penny Marshall? Whatever, dude. They must buy clothes at the same stores.
