Celebrity Rodman Redux By People Staff Published on January 14, 1999 12:00 AM Share Tweet Pin Email Dennis Rodman says the Los Angeles Lakers will take him back — if they’re smart. “They ain’t gonna win with what they’ve got, I’ll tell you that,” Rodman said in Thursday’s Orange County (Calif.) Register. Although the Lakers haven’t made him a formal offer, the flamboyant athlete — who has made headlines on and off the court — says team owner Jerry Buss recently checked in on him. “Just to see what’s going on, that’s all. Just to see where my head’s at,” said Rodman, 38. “I know what’s going to happen. They’re going to wait until the last minute, and it’s going to happen.” In other sports news, Olympic gold-medalist Tara Lipinski is hitting the ice for a January 2000 Fox Family Channel TV movie, “Ice Angel,” the story of a star hockey player who is accidentally killed and comes back in the body of a 17-year-old female figure skater. Lipinski will play a former competitor of the deceased.
