Dennis Rodman Thinks Basketball Is Key To Peace With North Korea

When you’re dealing with a rogue regime that insists on rattling its sabres and flexing its might as much as possible, some outside the box thinking may be required. That situation has fallen into the lap of President Donald Trump and his administration, as North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is making no secret of the fact that his country has made substantial progress in its development of nuclear weapons. He’s also none too shy about threatening to use them at the drop of a hat, so Trump and company have what’s known as an incredibly frightening situation on their hands.

As Fox News shares, former NBA player - and former ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ contestant - Dennis Rodman actually has a relationship with Jong Un for unclear reasons. Regardless of why, Rodman has made a number of trips to the country, and he believes that he can be the one to broker a peace deal. For starters, he thinks a basketball game between North Korea and Guam - a US territory that Jong Un has threatened to obliterate - would be a hoot.

“We thought, ‘This would be awesome! The people in Guam are all about it. They love it. You get a team from North Korea, get these guys from Pyongyang. Play it in Beijing,” Rodman explains. He also notes that the game would “give something historical for everyone to see” and that it would clearly demonstrate that “there’s no hatred at all” between North Korea rogue and the US.

While Rodman certainly seems to have an inside track with North Korea, his suggestions that he could be the one to broker peace seems a bit on the preposterous side. The flamboyant former player has not exactly come across as a master negotiator during his time in the spotlight, and there’s a school of thought that suggests he’s several cards short of a full deck.

Be that as it may, Rodman insists that the threats of launching nuclear weapon are merely “entertainment” and that “ain’t nobody got no finger on the button.” Alrighty then, we can file the threats from North Korea away in the file of nothing to worry about at all. Or not. If threatening an act that would lead to World War III counts as entertainment, we would hate to see what they really do for laughs.

In addition to touting his idea for world peace, Rodman notes that things are a bit strained between him and the man that fired him from Celebrity Apprentice.

“This whole thing with me, [Kim] and Donald Trump -- it’s a whole different dynamic right now,” he said. “I said to [Trump] I got three things to say to you, and after that, he told me to 'f--k off.'”

For Trump’s part, he acknowledged Rodman in a tweet back in 2014, and he was none too flattering while doing so.

“Dennis Rodman was either drunk or on drugs (delusional) when he said I wanted to go to North Korea with him. Glad I fired him on Apprentice!” he wrote.
