Executive summary: Eccentric ex-pro basketball player

Won five NBA championships with the Detroit Pistons and Chicago Bulls, and earned a reputation as one of the league's best rebounders and most eccentric personalities. Since retiring from sport, he has marketed his own Dennis Rodman brand "Bad Ass Premium Vodka", and made headlines as a controversial freelance peace envoy to totalitarian North Korea.

[1] Dennis Rodman, Bad As I Wanna Be (1996): "I'm not gay. I would tell you if I was [sic]. If I go to a gay bar, that doesn't mean that I want another man to put his tongue down my throat -- no. It means I want to be a whole individual. Mentally, I probably am bisexual." But in a 2014 video recorded outside Hooray Henry's in West Hollywood, chatting with a LA County Sheriff deputy, Rodman claims he is both "not gay" and "100% heterosexual."
