The Hall of Fame induction ceremony drags on and on for hours, and with the lockout in full force it's unclear how many people actually cared about the annual tradition this year.

There is one exception, of course, and that's the flamboyant Detroit Pistons and Chicago Bulls Dennis Rodman, who showed up at the ceremony in Springfield, Massachusetts, in style on Friday night.

One outlandish outfit wasn't enough for Rodman, who promised and delivered a wardrobe change in between the red carpet and speech portions of the evening. Here are pictures of his outfits.

On the red carpet, Rodman wore a silver jacket, a silver scarf, a black and silver hat with feathers, a black boa, white and black sunglasses, silver hoop earrings, two nose rings and a lip ring. Here are a few pictures.

During his speech, Rodman kept the earrings, nose rings and lip ring but opted for a new jacket and shirt. The shirt was white and accompanied by a glimery silver scarf while his jacket was Black with red trim. On the back of the jacket, the words "Pistons" and "Bulls" appeared along with a glittery basketball that was on fire.

Finally, here's a look at his more subdued outfit during the trial run through on Thursday night. Rodamn wears a black jacket, jeans, a black and red hat, the same white and black sunglasses and all the same facial jewelry.

Our culture is disgusting.  What a complete and utter fake.  Let your accomplishments speak for themselves, you don't have to dress like a fairy to get some more attention, Dennis.  (literally, a fairy)

Worm, one of the original metrosexuals, was pound per pound the greatest rebounder I've seen.  Kevin Love could take the title though...

from 56-69 the NBA didnt even keep stats on blocks, so who knows how many Bill Russell actually has. He did average 22.5 rebounds a game though and thats impressive. Even better is all his career #'s (career avg) are better in the playoffs including minutes per game at 45 a game while averaging 25 rebounds a game... IN THE PLAYOFFS! even his career assissts are higher in the playoffs. I want a NBA afficionado to tell how many blocks that man had. Dennis Rodman was a really good player in this generation, but to say he's the best all time defender might be a little much. I like Dennis too, but even just from the players that i've watched hes not the best defender when theres Robinson, Olajuwon, Mutombo, Ewing, Ben Wallace was good of late... how about guards too like Alvin Robertson, Iverson, Stockton, Mo Cheeks, Gary Payton, heck Jordan is himself maybe one of the best defenders of all time! Dennis you probably deserved to make the HOF but i cant agree that your'e the best defender all time.... although you may be on the list theres just alot of guys ahead of you.

When he was with the Pistons helping to enforce the Jordan rules...we all hated him in Chicago.  When we won three more championships with him in spite of the varying hair colors, marriage to Carmen Electra, etc...well, then he was our thug.  Congrats Worm.

who cares the clothes is wearing.. He is the best all-time defensive player of the NBA
one of the best, I could think of at least 2 guys that were better.

still, you're right on with your point.  who cares what the guy wore?  He's one of the best all-time, and the article says nothing about his comments or speech.  great, so we no longer care what an alltime great says about their career, and focus on his wardrobe?

weak.  Judge the man by his actions and his following words, not how he chooses to dress.
