BULL MARKET: Bulls F DENNIS RODMAN appeared on NBC's "Tonight Show" last night. Rodman, on the Bulls: "PHIL [JACKSON] needs a contract, MICHAEL [JORDAN]'s going to get $40 million, SCOTTIE [PIPPEN] will get $30 -- I'm going to get the rest." Rodman's wrestling partner, HOLLYWOOD HULK HOGAN, made an appearance on the show, as did KARL MALONE and DIAMOND DALLAS PAGE, who will wrestle Hogan and Rodman next month (NBC, 6/17). Rodman has signed a deal with Sony to star in an untitled film directed by RINGO LAM and DEVIN ELDERS. The film will be produced by Lam, DWIGHT MANLEY and MOSHE DIAMANT (DAILY VARIETY, 6/18). BOOK TOUR: Temple Publishing's "LEGAL BASES: BASEBALL AND THE LAW," by Rutgers Law School and MLB salary arbitrator ROGER ABRAMS, is reviewed by Smith College economics professor Andrew Zimbalist in the WASHINGTON POST. Zimbalist writes that Abrams "does not always succeed in presenting a balanced or penetrating account of his subject," and that "overall it is Abram's failure to draw out the many implications of antitrust law and baseball's exemption that is the Achilles' heel of the book" (WASHINGTON POST, 6/18)...."WHO WORKS IN NASCAR," published by WHO WORKS SPORTS GUIDES, is available for $39.50, plus $6 handling, through NC-based Eclipsed Management (NASCAR).
