PYONGYANG, North Korea — Former NBA star Dennis Rodman arrived in North Korea on Thursday to meet leader Kim Jong Un and put the finishing touches on plans to bring 12 ex-NBA players to Pyongyang for a Jan. 8 exhibition game marking the leader's birthday. Rodman said the game is on track despite the recent execution of Kim's uncle in a dramatic political purge.

So Dennis is a high profile American is he? The only reason he's there is to promote his ego ,and to call Ung your friend takes a lot of guts. North Korea just executed his uncle, they held a 80+ year American for a month for alledged crimes 60 years ago.. This is a country that could easily start a war over nothing and you want to help promote it. You were a kook when you were here in the NBA and now you're showing you haven't changed a bit.

Please leave him there. Let's see how he likes it when he does something to displease the "Dear Leader"! Then let him rot is a labor camp.

The leader's favorite song must be that old BJ Thomas ballad, "A little bit of love is better than no love, even a bad love is better than no love, and any kind of love is better than no love at all." Rodman has a high profile only because he is tall. Let's hope an international incident does not occur and the Marines don't need to be sent in to rescue the "All-Stars."
