In 2000, Rodman made the decision to retire from basketball. In 2011, he was inducted into the NBC Hall of Fame and the Detroit Pistons retired his number, #10. During his career, he played for the Detroit Pistons, San Antonio Spurs, Chicago Bulls, Los Angeles Lakers and Dallas Mavericks. In his early years before becoming a power forward he was a small forward. He was voted NBA Defensive Player of the Year twice and earned NBA All-Defensive First Team honors seven times. He also led the NBA in rebounds per game for a record seven consecutive years and won five NBA Championships.
Outside of basketball, Rodman is a part-time professional wrestler and a restaurateur. He had his own TV show, The Rodman World Tour. He also starred in the action films Simon Sez and Double Team with Jean-Claude Van Damme.
A long-time vegetarian, Rodman became the first man and first sports star to pose for PETA’s “Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur” campaign in 2005.
While competing on Celebrity Apprentice, Rodman is wining money for the charity organization, Make-A-Wish.
