Dennis Rodman, also known as ‘the Worm,’ is an NBA Hall of Famer. He led the league in rebounds for seven consecutive seasons and that record has yet to be beat. He is a five-time NBA champion and has won the NBA Defensive Player of the Year award twice. In a game full of giants that were near or over 7 feet tall, Rodman was only 6’7’’. It was his tenaciousness, hunger, and discipline that allowed him to corral so many rebounds.
But after his retirement, he is most known for his amicable relationship with North Korean dictator, Kim Jong-Un.
The 56-year-old has offered to ‘straighten things out’ between the U.S. and North Korea.
The United States and North Korea have been jostling on the international stage ever since Donald Trump stepped into office.
On an episode of Good Morning Great Britain, Rodman said that he would offer his services to help ‘straighten things out’ between the two countries amid a potential nuclear standoff.
Rodman has made several trips to North Korea to meet with his ‘good friend’ Kim Jong Un.
It has been alleged that Kim is a big fan of basketball and more specifically the 90’s Chicago Bulls team with Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, and Dennis Rodman.
Rodman’s last visit to the isolated country was back in June of 2017.
In an interview with Reuters, Rodman said: ‘for me to go over there and see (Kim) as much as I have, I basically hang out with him all the time.’
‘We laugh, we sing karaoke, we do a lot of cool things together. We ride horses, we hang out, we go skiing, we hardly ever talk politics.’
On his most recent visit, Rodman handed Trump’s book ‘The Art of Deal’ to Kim. Rodman said: ‘I don’t love (Kim). I just want to try to straighten things out for everyone to get along together.’
