Rodman picks team for North Korea basketball exhibition
Fox News ^ | January 5, 2014

Posted on 01/05/2014 2:23:35 AM PST by Zakeet

Dennis Rodman has named a team of former NBA players to play an exhibition basketball game in Pyongyang, North Korea.

Rodman will lead the team that includes former NBA All-Stars Kenny Anderson, Cliff Robinson, and Vin Baker. Craig Hodges, Doug Christie and Charles D. Smith are on the team, as well. They will play against a top North Korean senior national team on Wednesday, marking Kim Jong Un's birthday.

Rodman is the highest profile American to meet Kim since the leader inherited power from his father in late 2011.

I wonder if Kim asked Dennis to invite Michael Vick so they could compare dog-handling techniques?

In Iraq losing team members were tortured. Will NK treat them any differently? Dennis apparently has no idea that he’s taking his life into his own hands having anything to do with NK.

If Rodman’s team wins, he better sleep with one eye open while he’s over there. There might be a pack of dogs waiting just for him.

I believe that’s the very reason Fatso rolls out the carpet for him. If Tubby would feed Rodman to the dogs in the way he did his uncle who, in America, would care?

Shame should be heaped upon the entire team of American has-been basketball players who are complicit in travelling to NK to honor and participate in the adulation of a murderous thug and by extension, his murderous regime.

Where is the public outrage? Where are our mute political and religious leaders? Where are all the so-called conservative pundits and scribes? Where are the nabobs of the sports world?

Rodman's in-your-face "honoring" one of the world's most evil dictators is evil in itself....yet most Americans are just looking on in kind of a bemused acceptance and shrugging their collective shoulders....maybe even thinking it's "cool".

I wouldn't be at all surprised if Obama himself sent profuse birthday greetings and congratulations to the little N. Korean monster, murderer and torturer. Dirty water seeks its own level.

I believe Rodman had a bankruptcy and word is that KJU provides him with a professional girl who does some super bed ninjya stuff The Worm can’t get enough of.

It must be super amazing.

Can one be sure its a girl...?

If they know whats good for them, they’d better let the north korean team win.

Wait a minute. On second thought...

Go Rodman! Win against those north korean dogs! Win one for the CIA!

Allan Iverson once had $154 million but went bankrupt. Latrell Sprewell turned down a $21 million contract cuz his family “could not afford to live on so little money” - now he’s bankrupt.

Rodman’s bankruptcy attorneys had to represent him PRO BONO so I’m pretty sure Rodman is KJU’s personal toy/slave.

you are correct. where is the outrage? NK is ruled by a evil man. Most of the population is starving in prison camps. just horrible for Rodman and whoever else does this.

Would an American sports team have played an exhibition game in honor of Hitler's birthday at the height of Auschwitz and Buchenwald in WWII? Or are some murders and murderers "cleaner" than others?

This Rodman farce is grotesque, evil and insane, especially in view of the countless poor souls trapped in Kim's horrific concentration camps.

I wonder what physical condistion these guys are? Two are over 50 and some on in
their mid to late 40s. A times up and down the court and it maybe a walk for the Koreans.

Of course Rodman knows what's going on in NK. There's no doubt he has received much advice and data from those who advised him not to follow through on this misbegotten misadventure.

At the least, he knows as much as ANYONE in the outside world knows about Kim's secretive and evil empire.

But enough is known that the average patriotic, moral American citizen would not travel to NK to HONOR the murderer responsible for unspeakable atrocities against his own people, even his own family. Everlasting shame on the opportunistic Rodman and his pathetic traveling circus of has-been basketball players.

That is the plan behind the invite, that of breeding more. No wife any player who goes there should be so naive as to suppose otherwise. I am sure there is work elsewhere trying to overcome the barrier God made btwn species, to create guerrilla men as soldiers as well.

The “company” is slang for the CIA.

There's no way on earth that the CIA, untrustworthy as it may or may not be, would take on an unstable nut case like Rodman as an agent.

Really? It wouldn’t surprise me in the least. Things are not always as they appear. Remember Chuck Baris, the host of the Gong Show? I read he was a CIA spook.

Baris was rational and not subject to blackmail and bribery because of a chequered past. Add to that Julia Childs, also rumored to be a spy.

The mentally-unstable (attempted suicide, multiple-sexual adventures, erratic behavior) Rodman being hired as a government spook is the stuff of which tinfoil hat theories are made .
