Dennis Rodman will return to the United Center on Wednesday when he presents the game ball before Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals between the Chicago Bulls and Miami Heat.

Rodman, who won three NBA titles with the Bulls from 1995-99, headlines the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame’s 2011 class, which also includes former Bulls assistant coach Tex Winter.


Wednesday’s appearance at the United Center is the latest honor for the two-time Defensive Player of the Year and five-time NBA champion. The Detroit Pistons, the first of five NBA teams he played for, retired Rodman’s No. 10 jersey during a game against the Bulls earlier this season.


Former Bulls teammate and TNT analyst Steve Kerr expects Rodman to be emotional in his return to Chicago.


“It will be awesome. He is going to love it,” Kerr said Wednesday on “The Waddle & Silvy Show” on ESPN 1000. “This means so much to him. So for him to come back in front of these fans who are obviously incredibly hyped, it’s going to be emotional. It wouldn’t surprise me if he shed a few tears tonight.”


The Bulls hold a 1-0 series lead on the Heat.
