The former excentric NBA star, Dennis Rodman, has returned to North Korea for a visit with “friend” Kim Jong Un. This time, Rodman has brought ten basketball players along with him as a gift to the leader of the country.
Rodman has lashed out at news outlet CNN for the general disproval he’s received from the media for his decision to befriend the North Korean leader and travel to the country. Rodman explains the trip was for the sole purpose of his friendship and asked, “You know, you got 10 guys here. Ten guys here that left their families to help this country in the sports nature. Does anyone understand that?”
With the recent events of the imprisonment of American Kenneth Bae and the execution of Un’s uncle Jang Song-taek, Rodman was challenged for his decision to bring other Americans with him to North Korea. At the bottom line, Rodman truly believes that ultimately he can “open the door a little bit,” and “Guess what? One day, one day this door is going to open,” so people can go to North Korea.
On a scale of 1-10 how far from reality has Dennis Rodman reached?
