Dennis Rodman in North Korea – Ooh He’s an Angry Basketball PlayerPosted by J Craig on January 7, 2014
A team of former NBA basketball payers, including Dennis Rodman traveled to North Korea to to take part in a controversial basketball game on the birthday of Kim Jong Un. This is the fourth visit to the country by Rodman and this one is as strange as his others, but he is defending his visit by saying the trip is a “great idea for the world.”
He gives an exclusive interview with Chris Cuomo of CNN’s “New Day,” as he appears extremely angry with the questions asked of him. With the recent actions and allegations of the North Korean leader, Kim Jong Un, Rodman obviously sees nothing wrong with the visit or the well being of American citizens. Once questioned about US citizen Kenneth Bae, who’s been detained there for more than a year for reasons that are unclear, the basketball star goes off. He seems to be suffering from too much hair dye over the years and continues to demonstrate that he is more than a few grains short of a full salt shaker.
Rodman spoke from the country’s capital, Pyongyang, where he talks about Jong Un, “I love my friend. This is my friend.”
“I don’t give a rat’s ass what the hell you think. I’m saying to you, look at these guys here, look at them … they dared to do one thing, they came here.”
US citizen Kenneth Bae continues to be held captive and was arrested in November 2012 and sentenced in May to 15 years of hard labor. He is married and a father of three. He continues to be detained for reasons that are unclear. Rodman and the other former NBA stars are scheduled to play the North Korean team on Wednesday in a friendly contest for Jong Un’s birthday. The young leader turns 31 years old.
“The NBA is not involved with Mr. Rodman’s North Korea trip and would not participate or support such a venture without the approval of the U.S. State Department,” NBA Commissioner David Stern said in a statement released by the league.
So, Dennis Rodman going to North Korea to speak in front of a very dangerous enemy of this country and he actually got other former stars to go along. They thought this was a great idea? God help us.
