Hooray for the Legitimate Hall of Fame!

Yes NBA. They did the right thing. “The Worm” will become a member of the Hall of Fame (I hope) in August 2011.

Baseball Hall of Fame, joke. Until Pete Rose is there, MLB Hall is illegitimate. I’m not a “Charlie Hustle” fan. But the all-time hits leader, come on. If they want to have an additional “Hall of Shame”, then Pete could be in there too.

Football hall of fame, joke. Kickers must wear dresses, so they don’t get in. Well, the linemen say quarterbacks should wear dresses, too, and a lot of quarterbacks came in. Kickers are strangers so they don’t go in. Well, until Guy gets into the Hall of the NFL it’s a farce. Ray Guy should be with his weird teammates (like “The Snake” Stabler too). Ray didn’t just change games with his punts, he also controlled and won games. No, I’m not a fan of the Raiders, although I respect them for being the first wild card team to win it all. At least Jan Stenerud, field goal kicker, entered. Ray was in more Pro Bowls than Jan.
Nothing said about that.

So the NBA will induct Dennis Rodman into its Hall of Fame even though he wore a dress instead of a tuxedo. To remember? It was a beautiful white wedding dress. Dennis, a tattoo artist’s meal ticket. Dennis, addicted to gambling. Dennis outrageous. Even Michael Jordan (who barely snuck into the Hall) and Phil Jackson couldn’t control the “Worm” court jester. This guy was amazing. Talk about a nose for the ball. He was 6′ 7″, big compared to you and me; not big under the hole though. There aren’t a lot of guys with 7.3 points per game in the NBA Hall. That’s the average number of points scored in the career of Dennis. Six times he averaged 15+ rebounds per game. Seven times he averaged 5+ offensive rebounds per game, giving his team another chance to score. Twice he averaged 18+ rebounds per game. His career averaged 13+ “Since 1998, when Rodman retired, a guy has once averaged 15+ rebounds a game in a season. Dennis almost did it seven years in a row! (He had a 14.9 that blew him.) Well, that may as well be, but “Air Jordan” could say that it couldn’t have done it without the “Worm” running amok for 3 years.

Well deserved Dennis. I didn’t think the NBA would do the right thing.

NBA you are legit…
…and also the best for gambling. If you have nerves of steel. “I’m ahead, I’m behind, I’m ahead, I’m behind.” And a 20-point lead is nothing.
