Rodman's off-the-court problems continued when he appeared on "Celebrity Apprentice," which led to an intervention and a stint in rehab. Though he continued his outlandish behavior well into retirement, Rodman - who entered the Hall of Fame in 2011 - remained one of the most dominate defensive players in NBA history.
