Pippen wants to see Rodman in Hall of Fame

Bulls great Scottie Pippen, who went into the Hall of Fame last year, said he hopes former teammate Dennis Rodman joins him. Rodman is on the nomination list for the first time this year and led the league in rebounding for seven straight seasons. He was also named to the All-Defensive team eight times.

We all watched Dennis career and we know just how good he was as a basketball player, Pippen said. I think we all got caught up in his antics, and things he did away from the game, and it sort of disrespected or took attention away from what he did on the basketball court. But he is surely a Hall of Famer.

Finalists for the Hall of Fame are announced during the NBA All-Star weekend. (nba.com)
