Dennis Rodman is making a basketball comeback, just not in the way you might have expected. The 50-year old retired NBA Hall of Fame player has teamed with Headquarters Gentlemen’s Club in New York to form a topless women's team according to the New York Post.
“I don’t know too many men that don’t like a good-looking woman running up and down around the court,” Rodman told the Post.
"The Worm" got the idea after Rick's Cabaret teamed with former NBA player Spud Webb to form Rick’s Basketball Association during the NBA lockout last year. There were teams in several cities, but the league disbanded once the NBA players and owners ended their lockout.
“We stepped aside when the NBA returned,” said a Rick’s spokesman, who added, “We love Dennis . . . His regular table at Rick’s Cabaret is available. We wish Dennis well in coaching another team, but if the RBA was still in existence, we would have made Dennis our commissioner.”
Rodman will be auditioning players at Headquarters starting next week. Other than a height requirement of 5'10, no real experience is needed according to the former Chicago Bull.
“You don’t have to have too much experience, just know how to throw the ball into the hole,” said Rodman, who added, “They’ll come out in a T-shirt or a tank top, but when the game starts, they’ll go topless."
Rodman said he hopes to challenge Rick's to a charity game.
