Yesterday I was proud to read that Dennis Rodman was inducted into the NBA Hall of Fame along with 11 other historic players. Rodman has long since been one of my favourite players simply because he did his job. He was a role player. He got into peoples head and he didn’t care what people thought about him. The outspoken forward was apart 5 NBA championships, a back to back with the Pistons and then the infamous 2nd 3 peat by the Chicago Bulls in the late 90’s. Needless to say Rodman to me is one of the best rebounders of all time being undersized majority of the time. His relentless pursuit of the basketball was electrifying and was very entertaining to watch. Congrats Dennis Rodman!
With the NBA All Star festivities beginning today a lot of people I know are going to be glued to the TV this weekend. Lets hope that this year the NBA can deliver a show worth me watching it. Personally, I enjoy All Star weekend because its the only time of the year where the players can take a step back and have fun and just enjoy being in the company of other great basketball players and many of their idols growing up as well. This year Los Angeles was the host and what better place to have it but LA. Kinda biased but other than Miami, New York or Texas its the next best venue. The schedule for this weekend is the following.
– Celebrity game
– Rookie vs Sophomore game
– Skills Challenge
-3 pt Contest
– NBA 60th All Star Game
Enjoy the weekend and I’ll be posting more about the festivities and my thoughts 🙂
