Kim Jong Un doesn't really want war with the superpower, just a call from President Barack Obama to chat about their shared love of basketball, says erstwhile diplomat Rodman."He loves basketball. ... I said Obama loves basketball. Let's start there" as a way to warm up relations between U.S. and North Korea", Rodman  said.  (AP Photo/ABC Television, Lorenzo Bevilacqua)

    Now the dude’s just being greedy. TMZ reports that North Korea’s favorite NBA star, Dennis Rodman, is flying to Rome to meet the new pope. At least, that’s what he hopes. His “people” have allegedly been speaking with other important unnamed people at the Vatican, who’ll try to get a one-on-one with whoever wins the conclave. Rodman apparently wants to be “anywhere in the world that I’m needed.” So take from that what you will.
