Dennis Rodman Wears Drag For Legends Of Basketball Tour

Dennis Rodman had all eyes on him in Argentina when he hit the basketball court, dressed in drag.

Rodman wore heavy eye makeup, bright lipstick and a platinum mohawk to play in the Legends of Basketball 2014 Tour in Buenos Aires, Sunday, March 30.

A YouTube video from the game shows the crowd cheering and taking photos. Sporting News notes the audience wasn't too shocked at the former Bulls player's appearance.

"The Argentinian fans weren't surprised one bit," blogger DeAntae Prince writes. "In fact, they appeared delighted to have Rodman live up to his reputation for pulling off the unexpected and unthinkable."

Drag is nothing new for the 52-year-old NBA star, who discussed his multifaceted persona in his 1996 autobiography, Bad As I Wanna Be.

"To hang out in a gay bar or put on a sequined halter top makes me feel like a total person and not just a one-dimensional man," he wrote. "I'm always looking for new ways to test myself, whether on the court or off. There are no rules, no boundaries -- I'm trying to get deep into who I am. ... Nobody's going to tell me it's not manly to drive a pink truck or wear pink nails. I'll be the judge of my own manliness."
