05:05 PM ET 12.09 | Even though he hasn't touched a basketball professionally in years, Dennis Rodman still manages to keep his name in the news. He has been ordered by the courts to pay $500,000 in back child support and has been found in contempt of court. He has been sentenced to informal probation but could face jail time if he does not pay the ordered amount. An attorney for Rodman's ex-wife Michelle Rodman first argued that he was behind $850,000 but Rodman's attorney Linnea Willis challenged that amount. The two sides met outside of court and were able to agree upon $500,000. According to his attorney Rodman was found in contempt of court because of previous underpayments. Linnea Willis said that the judge gave Rodman no jail time or community service and had praised Rodman for his previous community service with this case.

QUOTE(#7):

My Knickerbockers are handling the Nuggets tonight. Clearly they miss Melo. Plus we have a better coach.

Handling would be an overstatement. Nuggest had the best of them until the run.
