It's been a few years since former NBA star Dennis Rodman has been on the court, but this hasn't stopped Only Poker from pursuing him to represent their room. And recently, their pursuit paid off as an anonymous employee of Only Poker said they've signed the 6'8" Rodman.

The poker website now features a picture of Rodman wearing an Only Poker cap with the logo "The Bad Boy is Back" next to him. The signing of Rodman makes sense because Only Poker is part of the Cake Poker Network, which markets heavily to US players. And many Americans remember Dennis Rodman as the eccentric power forward who played for the Detroit Pistons and Chicago Bulls. He was able to win 2 NBA championships with the Pistons in addition to 2 all-star game appearances, and he won 3 championships with the Bulls. Rodman also led the NBA in rebounding seven different seasons.

Besides his basketball exploits, Rodman became even more well-known in the entertainment industry since he was married to model Carmen Electra, won Season 4 of the ABC show "The Mole", and appeared in NBC's Celebrity Apprentice and Celebrity Rehab. Dennis Rodman was also a fixture on the celebrity party scene for a while as well.

In regards to poker, Dennis Rodman was a contestant on Bravo's "Celebrity Poker Showdown" where he won his first round matchup against skateboarder Tony Hawk, comedian Ryan Stiles, actress Cheryl Hines, and actor Bobby Cannavale. Actor Mekhi Phifer ended up defeating Rodman in the championship.

Rodman should fit in well with Only Poker and its poker bad boy image. The poker site's slogan is "No Bullshit, Only Poker", and they'll draw from the large Cake Poker Network player base. Thousands of cash game players play on the network each day making the Cake Poker Network the 10th biggest in the world.
