Dennis Rodman was sentenced today to 104 hours of community service for failing to pay child support, reports City News Service.

Lawyers for Rodman's ex-wife, Michelle, say that the former Lakers star owes her at least $750,000, although Rodman's lawyers have said that amount is an exaggeration.

When handing down the sentence, Court Commissioner Barry Michaelson told Rodman that his suggestion was "to use your talents as a motivator, as a fine, fine athlete and as a fine person to assist others in need," reports FOX News.

Michelle and Rodman for married in 2003 and stayed together for a year. They've since been engaged in a court battle over custody of their two kids, ages 10 and 11.
