Former NBA star and Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman was sentenced to 104 hours of community service in family court stemming from four counts of contempt for failure to pay child support.

"My suggestion is to use your talents as a motivator, as a fine, fine athlete and as a fine person to assist others in need," Court Commissioner Barry Michaelson told Rodman.

Rodman still has contempt charges against him and ex-wife Michelle Rodman's attorneys say he still owes more than $800,000 in back child support, reports the Associated Press.

"It's all about the kids," Rodman told the court. "It does suck the fact that it had to come to this."

Rodman, 51, won five NBA championships and last played with the Dallas Mavericks in 2000.
