At halftime of the Pistons/Bulls game in Auburn Hills on April 1, the Pistons will retire the #10 jersey of Dennis Rodman, who averaged 8.8 PPG and 11.5 RPG in 549 games as a Piston.
He won the Defensive Player of the Year award in 1990 and 1991, and helped the Pistons win back-to-back titles in '89 and '90.
Pistons rookie Greg Monroe currently wears #10 but will be allowed to keep it.
A fitting tribute for a great playing career, even if the guy was nutty as a fruitcake. It's also fitting that it should happen when the Bulls are in town. I wonder if Chicago will follow suit in the future.

Well, unless Phoenix can pull a 2004 Red Sox, they're done and San Antonio will be representing the West in the Finals. It's amazing how the Spurs have the innate ability to expose teams. Hopefully Phoenix can take at least 1.
