Rodman apologized Thursday for comments about captive American missionary Kenneth Bae in North Korea: “I take full responsibility for my actions. It had been a very stressful day.”
Wednesday’s basketball game was a new milestone in Rodman’s unusual relationship with Kim, who rarely meets with foreigners and remains a mystery to much of the outside world.
Charles D. Smith says he feels remorse for coming to Pyongyang with Dennis Rodman for a game on the North Korean leader’s birthday because the event has been dwarfed by politics and tainted by Rodman’s own comments.
Rodman said Monday that a game he and other former NBA players are planning in North Korea will be a “birthday present” for one of their most unlikely fans: leader Kim Jong Un.
The mystery of what exactly happened to Patriots owner Robert Kraft’s Super Bowl ring was one of many odd places sports wandered into this year…
Dennis Rodman held tryouts Friday for a North Korean team to face a dozen NBA veterans in an exhibition game on Kim Jong Un’s birthday next month – though he hasn’t convinced all the players on the American team that it’s safe.
Rodman plans to return to North Korea in January to play and exhibition game with Scottie Pippen and Karl Malone.
The argument about whether LeBron James will ultimately be better than Michael Jordan continues to gain steam. But Dennis Rodman, Jordan’s former teammate with the Bulls, doesn’t want to hear it. To him, it’s an asinine argument.
Rodman is tapping his friendship with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to ask for the release of a Korean-American man sentenced to 15 years of hard labor in the North.
Reggie Evans is an example of superior will. At 32-years-old, he is the NBA’s ultimate survivor.
This is the second stop on Rodman’s bizarre global tour that started with a trip to North Korea last month where the Hall of Famer met with Kim Jong Un.
In a bizarre twist, the Hall of Famer is expected to arrive in St. Peter’s Square on Wednesday in a makeshift popemobile as he campaigns for Cardinal Peter Turkson of Ghana to become the church’s first black pope.
According to the New York Post, the Hall of Famer was asked to leave the Time Hotel in Midtown on Sunday for blabbering about how much he likes and admires the dictator.
The White House says North Korea’s government should be focused on the well-being of its citizens, not on “celebrity sporting events” to entertain the country’s elite.
“He’s proud, his country likes him — not like him, love him, love him,” Rodman said of Kim Jong Un. “Guess what, I love him. The guy’s really awesome.”
