Former Piston Dennis Rodman subject of upcoming '30 for 30'
Long before he married Carmen Electra, long before he "married" himself, long before he became BFFs with North Korea's Kim Jong Un, Dennis Rodman was a Detroit Piston — and a darn good one.
Rodman has lived quite the life, on and off the basketball court, and now he will be the subject of a new "30 for 30" documentary by ESPN.
Terry Foster, a former Detroit News columnist and Pistons beat writer, broke the news on Twitter earlier this week. Foster said he has been interviewed for the project, which will be unveiled during the 2019 NBA Finals.
Rodman, 57, was a second-round pick by the Pistons in the 1986 NBA Draft, and he played seven seasons with Detroit, helping the team to back-to-back NBA championships in 1989 and 1990.
He then played two seasons with the San Antonio Spurs before three with the Bulls, winning three more NBA championships in Chicago. Rodman concluded his NBA playing career with one season with the Los Angeles Lakers and one with the Dallas Mavericks, before he bounced around on minor basketball circuits for a few years.
Nicknamed "The Worm," he averaged 7.3 points and 13.1 rebounds during his 14-year career. He is considered one of the best defenders in NBA history.
Rodman was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2011. That same year, the Pistons retired his No. 10.
