In a Aug. 29 discussion on HuffPost Live, retired NBA star Dennis Rodman poked fun at long-standing rumors over his sexuality.
"If I were to have came out and said that I was gay, which I'm not gay...back in 1996, people would have said, 'Oh, we knew,'" Rodman, who recently launched his Bad Boy Vodka Brand, quipped.
Despite Rodman's high-profile romance with Madonna and a brief marriage to Carmen Electra, the basketball star's colorful and flamboyant style made him the frequent source of media speculation.
Still, he seemed supportive of current NBA star Jason Collins' coming out this past spring, saying he wished other players would similarly come forward.
Regarding Magic Johnson, he added, "I was the only player to say, 'I don't give a damn [that you are HIV-positive] I just want to play you.'"
