Pistons Will Retire Rodman’s No. 10

Dennis Rodman may be best known for his time as a Chicago Bull and for his antics off the court. But he’s now being recognized for his time as a Detroit Piston.

The Pistons plan to retire Rodman’s No. 10 during a halftime ceremony later this season.

Rodman, the eccentric rebounding specialist who helped the Pistons win NBA titles in 1989 and 1990, will be honored April 1 when the Pistons host the Chicago Bulls, a team Rodman won three championships with from 1996-98.

Detroit rookie Greg Monroe currently wears No. 10 and will be allowed to keep doing so.

Rodman averaged 8.8 points and 11.5 rebounds in 549 games as a Piston. He was the league’s Defensive Player of the Year in 1990 and 1991.

    I am a Bulls Fan and I do recognize and acknowledge that Rodman was a major part of the Bulls 2nd 3-Peat along w/Pippen and Jordan in the end he is viewed to most Basketball Fans as a Piston. Rodman played 7 seasons in Detroit won 2 Rings along with winning Def. Player of Yr and All Star with Pistons 2x. I hope he gets his call for the HOF because to dominate on the Glass @ his height and doing vs. Big Men like Hakeem, Ewing, Kareem, Shaq and Alonzo Mourning was remarkable.
