Both films were critically panned, with the former earning Rodman a triple Razzie Award.
His biography at NBA. com states that he was \”arguably the best rebounding forward in NBA history\”. On April 1, 2011, the Pistons retired Rodman’s No. 10 jersey, and he was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame later that year. In high school, he was benched or cut from the teams, but was either listed in the high school basketball squads.

According to Rodman, his mom was more interested in his two sisters, who were both considered more talented than he was in basketball, and made him a laughing stock whenever he tagged along with them.
