Dennis Rodman’s drag queen outfits are still eccentric enough to get a raised eyebrow in the sports world. So when pictures of him hit the internet today at the Legends Of Basketball Tour 2014 everyone on social media just had to add their opinion.
“I needed to decompress from all the things I was going through. I was trying to get this game going and get everything going in North Korea. I don’t need to drink. I don’t need to do anything. I went to rehab just to sort things out. That’s it. I’m not an alcoholic. An alcoholic drinks seven days a week. I don’t drink seven days a week. When I drink, I don’t hurt nobody, I don’t have no DUIs, nothing like that.”
Other than that we don’t know much about why he was in rehab. Perhaps he struggles with having too much eyeliner?
So without further ado, here is the Dennis Rodman drag queen photo that has lit Twitter afire:

This photo was taken in Argentina while playing with Gary Payton, Latrell Sprewell, Vin Baker, and other former NBA players. While his yellow mohawk is likely to alert everyone on the court to his location at any given moment, it’s his choice of purple and black lipstick and eyeliner that apparently has everyone talking.
Regardless of his appearance, Rodman’s defense and rebounding skills were enough to make a Hall of Fame career in the NBA. Even after many years many people are divided over not only how he looks but also his actions. He’s become quite infamous for becoming friends with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un and it even made the news when Rodman “puked and crapped” all over a North Korean hotel recently.
So perhaps we should just count it a blessing that Dennis Rodman’s drag queen outfit did not include Kim Jong-Un’s infamous haircut, which is now apparently a requirement for every student in North Korea.
