What Will Dennis Do?

In the pantheon of good vs. evil rivalries there's David vs. Goliath, Luke Skywalker vs. Darth Vader, George Bush vs. Osama Bin Laden (of course the last rivalry could just be evil vs. eviler.)

And now there's a burgeoning new rivalry to add to the list: the Dennis Rodman all-stars vs. the Harlem Globetrotters.

Yes, you read that correctly.

One of the attractions in Las Vegas for the 2007 NBA All-Star game will be the venerable clown princes of hoops hi-jinx and harmony versus the original tattooed wonder and his team of merry misfits in addition to the Trotters' traditional circus show against the New York Nationals. While Dennis hasn't finalized a roster yet, I can only hope the lineup reads like the Syracuse Bulldogs or maybe the New York Knicks of 1990's.

Just think of the possibilities.

Imagine the happy-go-lucky Trotters facing off against a starting five of Bill Lambier, Anthony Mason, John Starks, Vernon Maxwell and the Worm himself with a bench of the likes of Ron Artest, Xavier McDaniel, Frank Brickowski, Kermit Washington, and Kevin Johnson. Add a Bill Cartwright for his elbows and a Reggie Miller for his chicken scratch fighting technique, and the Trotters might wanna think about playing in football pads.

No word yet on whether or not the recently divorced Carmen Electra will be the leader of the cheerleading squad or if Dennis will just pay the day staff at The Pink Palace to moonlight with pompoms.

Family fun for all!
