Dennis Rodman to be inducted in Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame

Dennis Rodman's basketball skills were sometimes overshadowed by the outrageous outfits and tabloid tales.

He is getting recognition for what he did on the court Friday when he is inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

Rodman joins Dream Team alum Chris Mullin as the headline names on the 10-person class of 2011, and he is certainly the most colorful and controversial.

But beyond the antics was a five-time champion who won 70 percent of his games. Rodman says if anyone has a problem with him, "all you've got to do is look at the record. Every team I went to, I won, and I was a big, major part of that team."

He won't wear a dress Friday, but has some "real cool stuff to wear onstage."
