AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- Dennis Rodman said Friday night that he will be enshrined in the Basketball Hall of Fame.
Rodman says he was informed Thursday to be in Houston for Monday's announcement before the championship game of the NCAA tournament. He was among 12 finalists for the Hall of Fame this year along with players such as Jamaal Wilkes, Maurice Cheeks, Chris Mullin and Ralph Sampson. The induction ceremony is in August.
An emotional Rodman said he isn't sure he deserves the Pistons' tribute.
"Tonight, it's going to be a good night," he said Friday during a pregame news conference. "It's a surprise to me that my number is getting retired. It's surprising to me. I just feel like I didn't deserve to have my number retired because I didn't do as much as I should here."
