    Rodman's ex-NBA Team arrives in NKorea for Game



    Dennis Rodman arrived in North Korea on Monday with a team of former NBA players for an exhibition game on Kim Jong Un's birthday, after saying he wants to show that North Korea isn't so bad.

    The flamboyant Hall of Famer arrived in the North Korean capital from Beijing with a squad of a dozen former basketball stars including Vin Baker and Cliff Robinson in what Rodman calls "basketball diplomacy," although U.S. officials have criticized his efforts.

    "It's about trying to connect two countries together in the world, to let people know that: Do you know what? Not every country in the world is that bad, especially North Korea," Rodman told The Associated Press in an interview outside his Beijing hotel before his flight to North Korea.....snip~

    Do you think Rodman and these guys know what Lil Kim did to his Uncle? I am surprised he got these guys to go over there with him. Rodman says not every country in the world is that bad. Not even NKorea.

    Hopefully they are being well paid for the event because it has nothing to do with diplomacy.

    Yeah, a country where an entire extended family is sent to concentration camp because one person questions "dear leader" or asks to not starve is "not so bad."

    ... To be honest, I'm starting to doubt that this is just for show. There may actually be a point to all of this. There's no way Rodman's wouldn't have been shown a few of the interviews by NK defectors when he came back. There's no way this guy is that ****ing nuts.

    If they win, will dear leader feel Rodman embarrassed North Korea?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Never cared for Rodman.

    He is stupid, crazy or broke, it seems.

    He can't be that clueless about N Korea politics, can he?

    Bottom line, the little dictator loves basketball. If Rodman and Co. can convince him of 'anything' it's a step in the right direction.

    Otherwise, it's a ruse.

    Maybe Rodman and his team are secret CIA agents and they're going to overthrow the government, kill kim jong un and his generals and bring democracy!
