Yeah NBA. They did the right thing. “The Worm” will become a Hall of Famer (I hope) in August 2011.
Baseball Hall of Fame, farce. Until Pete Rose is there, MLB Hall is illegitimate. I’m not a fan of “Charlie Hustle”. But the all-time leader strikes, come on. If they want to have an extra Hall of Shame, Pete could be there too.
Football Hall of Fame, farce. Kickers should wear dresses, so they don’t fit. Well linemen say quarterbacks should wear dresses as well and a lot of QBs have entered. Kickers are weird, so they don’t fit. Well until the guy walks into NFL Hall is a prank. Ray Guy should be with his weird teammates (like “The Snake” Stabler should be too). Ray not only changed games with his boat, he also controlled and won matches. No, I’m not a fan of the Raiders, although I respect them for being the first wild card team to win it all. At least Jan Stenerud, kicker, came in. Ray was in more Pro Bowls than Jan.
‘Nough said about it.
So the NBA will introduce Dennis Rodman to his Hall of Fame even if he wore a dress instead of a tuxedo. Remember? It was a beautiful white wedding dress. Dennis, tattoo artist’s meal ticket. Dennis, gambling addict. Dennis Outrageous. Even Michael Jordan (who barely snuck into the room) and Phil Jackson couldn’t control the court jester “Worm”. This guy was amazing. Talk about a nose for the ball. He was 6’7 “tall compared to you and me; not tall under the hole though. There aren’t many guys with 7.3 points per game in the NBA Hall. That’s the career average of Dennis in points scored. Six times he averaged over 15 rebounds per game. Seven times he averaged over 5 offensive rebounds per game, giving his team another scoring chance. Twice he did in averaging over 18 ‘per game. Career average over 13. Since 1998, when Rodman retired, once a guy has averaged over 15 rebounds per game in a season. Dennis almost did it. seven years in a row! (He had a 14.9 that ruined him.) Tell you what, they say MJ doesn’t win his six titles without Scotty Pippen. But “Air Jordan” could just say he didn’t. could not have done it without the uncontrollable “Worm” for 3 years.
Well deserved Dennis. I didn’t think the NBA would do what was right.
NBA you are legitimate …
… and also the best to bet on. If you have nerves of steel. “I’m early, I’m late, I’m early, I’m late.” And a 20 point lead is nothing.
