What a douche

why doesn't he just move there?

Maybe Kim'll get drunk and have him executed. Sure the US would condemn this as a matter of course but would anyone really be that bothered?

It's okay as long as he does not tell US government what to do with NK. He is free to speak out his mind.

I don't want to image the two of them "loving" together", and I'm totally gay.

This guy is such a flake and screw loose nutjob it is sickening for anyone to come out with the garbage he spews, he should just become a NK citizen and stay there.

What a complete and total nutter Rodman is. How can anyone like Kim? He's an out of control weirdo with the power to do whatever he wants.

Nutjob likes another nutjob. Go figure....

Well, who wouldn't love the Supreme Leader? Good grief.

I hope Rodney tells his "all star" team to let the North Korean's win the game. If they don't, Kim Jong Un won't be Rodney's friend anymore.

If Kim Jong asked me, Id probably say I loved him too..

Aren't you guys allowing him a freedom of speech? Geez. That's what freedom is all about. He is not hurting anyone. Is he hurting you? You need to grow up.

Undercover CIA operation conspiracy theory no one woulda guessed it James Bond operation?

Or like another celeb "slumming" w/ REAL gangsters to increase their for-real street cred?

Maybe Rodman is a reincarnated North Korean...

Really hard to figure.

You have to wonder what Rodman thinks he is doing but I can't see how anybody could love that little toad the Un.

I don't want to imagine the two of them "loving" together"....

Yeah, that's a really bad image. I don't even want to think about it.

He's not hurting anyone that's true, but this idiot moonbat praising Kim is totally keeping him in the spotlight and giving him relevancy, which we all know his father loved as his grandfather loved before him. The man is THE worst human rights abuser by far and stupid Rodman talks as if Kim is just your ordinary mill of a guy that you would hang out with on a sunny, Sunday morning. Going over there once, whatever, twice, it's enough. Rodman was a joke back in the day and even more so NOW.

Maybe Rodman will return to USA and marry Little Kimmie!

That's an interesting quote. You mean to grow up, unlike those desperate orphaned North Korean children left to freeze or starve to death outside in the streets and who won't 'grow up' thanks to the family dictatorship that Rodman is supporting. Grow up, yeah good one.

Geez, hope you can compartmentalize two different issues. You won't be a lawyer.

Oh Yeah, I dare him to say he doesn't love the Dear Leader, and see what happens!!!..

That second image is truly bizarre.

That's pretty iffy. He is an international superstar with a lot of opinion -making potential, who is actively courting a head of state who has very unsteady relations with the rest of the world, and especially with the celeb's home country, and also they really want nukes,

Freedom of speech? It's a bit beyond that.

For once, I agree with Bass4funk. I am very sorry that this guy is representing Americans, as he is just by the nature of this international visiting. Stick to basketball.

Sounds like many here have no American public education background. Educators here are encourage to teach a freedom of speech to students. Good teachers do not rate papers based on if the answer is right or wrong, rather his logic to conclusion on the paper is a correct one. In this case, his action for peace should be a focus.

I guess that makes you wrong for the second time. Never pass judgement without any evidence.

Kim Jong-Un's dictatorship family have an absolutely appalling human rights record for abuses against their own people. Maybe you should check Amnesty International's site to read some of the horrific stories about life in North Korea.

And whilst you bang on about freedom of speech, you have given absolutely no consideration of someone with some media influence (Rodman) publicly backing such a regime as if everything there is fine. Fans of Rodman could believe such statements.

So maybe instead of incorrectly stating that certain posters would never become lawyers, maybe spend some time reading Amnesty's accounts of young children in North Korea, orphaned and left to rot in the street. Or maybe of the whole families sentenced to labour camp jails because of a family members 'crimes'.

Or I guess you are not going to give any credence to the work that Amnesty International do..?

You are not American, so you probably do not understand how disgusted I am to read some comments here that are based on racial bias and discrimination. American children are taught on values; freedom, equality and justice for all. I am glad Rodman & Co are doing something positive beyond the politics.

Rodman is a clown and a fool in a Dictators foil. He got drunk and said that the Missionary Bae being held there did something to deserve imprisonment... and the other over the hill basketball players bailed on him after he sand Happy Birthday and dedicated the friendly game to the PSY look alike. If he were to execute him no one would care and most people would say he deserved it.
