For all intents and purposes, Dennis Rodman was the most flamboyant basketball player in the 90s. The colorful hair, multiple tattoos before Allen Iverson made the fashionable and the erratic behavior all made “The Worm” a household name in more than just his former stomping grounds of Detroit & Chicago.

Despite all the shenanigans he provided on and off the court, Rodman was the most noted member of the 2011 Basketball Hall of Fame class enshrined on yesterday. In true “Worm” fashion, Rodman graced the stage with a blazer with his initials etched onto the sides as well as his two favorite teams stitched in the back, dressed to the “9s” as any woman would remark. However, it was a different story once one of the NBA’s greatest rebounders began speaking.

During a twelve minute speech he opened up and spoke about his failed relationships with his three children and how his relationship with four men, coach Phil Jackson (who inducted him), coach Chuck Daly, Los Angeles Lakers owner Jerry Buss and James Rich, who took a homeless Rodman in when he was young became his father figures.
