Former NBA Players Join Him For An Exhibition Game
Former basketball player Dennis Rodman sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in the country’s capital at the Pyongyang Indoor Stadium.
The crowd of 14,000 joined Rodman in singing to, who he calls the young leader his “best friend”.
The American Hall of Famer says that he was there to celebrate Kim Jon Un’s birthday with an exhibition basketball game, which he describes as “basketball diplomacy”.
While on his trip, Rodman has been slammed for his comments regarding tour operator and American missionary Kenneth Bae whom has been accused by North Korea officials of plot sedition, “If you understand what Kenneth Bae did… Do you understand what he did in this country? … I would love to speak on this.”
Bae is currently being confined in North Korea and reports from the White House state that he is in poor health.
Do you think Rodman’s trip to North Korea was an example of basketball diplomacy or a slap in Kenneth Bae’s face?
