Dennis Rodman teams up with the Harlem Globetrotters in..... North Korea!

Rodman joins three members of the Globetrotters on their visit to North Korea!

"Rodman and Smith said the Americans hope to engage in a little "basketball diplomacy" by running a basketball camp for children and playing pickup games with locals, and by competing alongside top athletes of North Korea -- formally known as the Democratic People's Republic of Korea."

WOW, the last thing I would imagine from Mr. Dennis Rodman, I trouly love this guy!

But to be honest, basketball without borders is what the NBA is trying to sell for years and I really believe this is something very very good to anybody on this planet. Oh and did I mention, that Skip Bayless and Stephen A. Smith are doing their best clowning around and Skip is afraid Dennis will start a new World War.... This ain't funny anymore, what is ESPN trying to tell me with a "first take" show like this???

To me it is way more likely that this is a beginning of even more respect to others and may zoom in on the situation the people there are caught in. Love this and as strange as this seem to be Dennis might be the best person to do a trio like that.

Imagine if you were a North

Imagine if you were a North Korean person who has lived all their life only meeting other North Korean people and the first person from the rest of the world they meet is Dennis Rodman.
On a side note how are Dennis and the globetrotters allowed in North Korea I thought no westerners were allowed in North Korea.

lol, Rodman would have to

lol, Rodman would have to self identify as a human, otherwise I doubt the North Koreans would come to that conclusion

But tourists are allowed in North Korea, they get a couple thousand visitors every year:

I think it's amazing what Rodman is doing, experiencing what free countries have access to is one of the primary weapons against despotic states

It's great that North Korea

It's great that North Korea was so accommodating to the Globetrotters. They had to bring The Worm....at least he's no longer the Menace he once was and news of how quiet/humble he seemed is really fabulous news. Still, a laid-back Dennis Rodman is an eye-catching sight.

North Korea has loosened up

North Korea has loosened up in the last 6 months. They finally legalized pizza, cellphones, and are allowing women to use pants.

And now this?!

(I never thought I'd type "finally legalized pizza" lmfao)

Did that mean 6 months ago in

Did that mean 6 months ago in North Korea, people were on street corners dealing pizza. If I ever do get arrested I would hope it would be for something as cool as "dealing pizza" and instead of going to jail I would go on a Pizza rehabilitation course.
