Dennis Rodman is back in North Korea with some fellow former NBAers to play a game for Kim Jong-Un's birthday.
David Stern does not approve.
"The NBA is not involved with Mr. Rodman's North Korea trip and would not participate or support such a venture without the approval of the U.S. State Department," Stern said in a statement. "Although sports in many instances can be helpful in bridging cultural divides, this is not one of them."
Rodman, who has made multiple trips to North Korea, brought with him Cliff Robinson, Doug Christie, Kenny Anderson, Vin Baker, Charles Smith, Sleepy Floyd, Craig Hodges and four other streetball players to play an exhibition game.
"The marshal is actually trying to change this country in a great way," Rodman said of Kim, via the Associated Press. "I think that people thought that this was a joke, and Dennis Rodman is just doing this because fame and fortune."
"Just to even have us here, it's an awesome feeling. I want these guys here to show the world, and speak about North Korea in a great light," he said. "I hope people will have a different view about North Korea."
