The NBA’s greatest rebounder of all time is also the NBA’s craziest player of all time. Rodman went even crazier when he took trips to North Korea this last year to meet with leader Kim Jong-Un. The two became great friends, to no ones surprise and it looks like the world may have to thank Mr. Rodman for his services as Mr. Jong-Un hasn’t tried to blow us up.
From the AP:
Rodman considers Kim a close friend and has a long-scheduled trip that starts Monday to train the national team. Rodman also has organized an exhibition game in January in Pyongyang to celebrate Kim’s birthday. Rodman could reveal the roster next week. He says former professional basketball players have committed to the game, though he declined to reveal names.
“Yes, I’m going to North Korea to train the basketball team,” he told The Associated Press by phone. “I’m going to bring American players over there. Yes I am. I’m going to be the most famous person in the world when you see American people holding hands and hoping the doors can be opened. If they can. If they can. If they can. I’m going. I’m going back for his birthday. Special.”
