Dennis Rodman is back in North Korea helping train their national basketball team for an exhibition game on January 8th to celebrate Kim Jong Un's birthday. The team will play against a team of former NBA basketball players who have yet to be announced. Rodman is in North Korea days after Kim Jong Un had his uncle and former mentor executed. What is Rodman thinking? Well, in this video, he explains why he's in North Korea for a third time saying that he's just there to visit his friend, Kim Jong Un.
What's the story with Dennis Rodman and his North Korea schtick? Is he getting money from them? It has to be money...right? Bizarre...

I hope Dennis Rodman brings me back the refrigerator magnet I wanted from N. Korea... I need it for my collection.

I worry that Dennis Rodman will be held as a political prisoner in North Korea. And that we may be forced to pay, for them to keep him.
