    December 20, 2013: Former NBA basketball player Dennis Rodman holds a cigar as he speaks to North Korean basketball players during a practice session in Pyongyang, North Korea. During the session, Rodman selected the members of the North Korean team who will play in Pyongyang against visiting NBA stars on Jan. 8, 2014, the birthday of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. (AP)

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.

Rodman calls the game his version of "basketball diplomacy."

Losing team gets fed to hungry dogs?
The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open." If he thinks knowledge is so all-fired impossible, why does he always look? — James Sire (from, The Universe Next Door)

Get outa my head..!!

Rodman is so desperate for attention the best he can do is befriend Kim Jong Un-pleasant??  Or is Un just the last person on earth who will tolerate this silly sonofabitch??

I don't see how this doesn't violate the long standing sanctions against the Norks, and I also do not see how any of them can travel to the North for such an exhibition without the express permission of the State Department.  Of course that all would be in a normal world....

I think Rodman is taking extra steaks, just in case. :whistle:
