BASKETBALL'S MADONNA STRIKES A POSE
Published May 25, 1995
In cover-boy DENNIS RODMAN's interview with SPORTS ILLUSTRATED this week, the Spurs' forward says he "will be in show business" some day, adding, "But I'm not going to play some weak-ass basketball player. That would be stupid." SI's Michael Silver writes that "an agent that put together Pulp Fiction thinks Rodman would be a classic Quentin Tarantino villain." Rodman says he is "talking with Warner Bros. and Disney about big projects" (SI, 5/29 issue). USA TODAY's Michael Heistand reports on what various management experts would do about Rodman's on/off court behavior. (USA TODAY, 5/25). Interviewed during last night's Rockets-Spurs game, NBA Commissioner David Stern said of the SI piece: "I only read Sports Illustrated for the hockey and golf news" (TNT, 5/24).
