Dennis Rodman planning another trip to North Korea

By Royce Young | NBA writer

Everyone's favorite diplomat is headed overseas again.

According to the Associated Press, Dennis Rodman will visit North Korea again next week, this time with the intention to train their national basketball team.

"Yes, I'm going to North Korea to train the basketball team," he told The AP. "I'm going to bring American players over there. Yes I am. I'm going to be the most famous person in the world when you see American people holding hands and hoping the doors can be opened. If they can. If they can. If they can. I'm going. I'm going back for his birthday. Special."

Rodman has made multiple trips to North Korea, serving as sort of a makeshift ambassador. However, some have been critical of his apparent friendship with Kim Jong Un, and his refusal to discuss things like North Korea's sketchy human rights history, considered one of the worst in the world.

Rodman is also organizing a game to be played for Kim's birthday, claiming to have former professional players lined up to participate, though he wouldn't reveal any names.
