Six to Join Rodman in North Korea

Have they not yet heard the (unproven and probably unlikely, but still terrifying) report that Kim Jong Un’s uncle was eaten alive by 120 wild dogs? Because how can you even think about going to North Korea after hearing that rumor? Dennis Rodman has reportedly recruited six former NBA players for his big North Korean “basketball diplomacy” thing, the Associated Press reported on Saturday. On the roster are Kenny Anderson, Cliff Robinson, Vin Baker, Doug Christie, Craig Hodges, and Charles D. Smith. The six players will face off against a “top North Korean Senior National Team” on January 8—Kim Jong Un’s birthday. Um, good luck guys?
