I mean, Bernard was a really good player 2-3 years of his career, but other than that, he was just an above average efficiency SG that shot a lot. 4 all star games are his entire award collection, along with a couple 1st team all NBA appearances. I think he should go in before Reggie, but he really didn't dominate long

If the NBA would have welcomed in a 22 year old Sabonis, he would be one of the top centers of all time in the NBA.

You think a guy with 2 allstar selections deserves to be in over him? Hell I'd put Brad Daugherty or Mark Price in over Rodman.

The more HOF the bulls get the less Shinny " that Bald dude with the 23 " looks like , the easier in 10 years kids are telling that " going bald dude with the 24" is the GOAT.


The game is played in both sides of the courts and Rodman is a top 3 for sure and maybe the GDPOAT and top 3 rebounder of all time too.

How does it not qualify for HOF?

Weak HOF, player wise. Tex Winter is the real story... this guy has deserved this for a couple decades now.

Dennis Rodman is the reason I started watching basketball as a kid. However, if it wasn't for his *** clownery and being a media whore, he would have been just another face in the crowd and wouldn't stand a snowflake's chance in hell to get in the HOF.
