Rodman leads 2011 HOF Class



Former Pistons/Bulls great Dennis Rodman transcended from his days of looking ruffed up on Celebrity Rehab to Friday’s enshrinement into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame. He led the pack with a heartfelt, mature, and sincere speech. Former St. John’s legend and Golden State Warriors’ Chris Mullin (video below) was the next player voted in the HOF. Mullin was a dominant force in the game, and still is a great NBA analyst (his job now). Eight others were at the induction ceremony including:

Tara VanDerveer, who has led Stanford to two national championships and won more than 800 games; Tex Winter; and Division II Philadelphia University coach Herb Magee, the career leader at the collegiate level with more than 900 wins.

Eight-time NBA champion Tom “Satch” Sanders; big men Artis Gilmore and Arvydas Sabonis; the late Reece “Goose” Tatum of the Harlem Globetrotters; and women’s star Teresa Edwards, who won five Olympic medals — four golds — and is entering her fifth Hall of Fame, were also honored. – espn
