NBA icon Dennis Rodman is no stranger to the media. As great of a basketball player he was, his talent always seemed to be overshadowed by his off court and some on court antics. Well it doesn’t seem that Rodman has changed his ways. In the past few months Rodman has been featured in the media numerous amounts of times in regards to his relationship with North Korea leader Kim Jong Un.
It all started when Rodman and the famous Harlem Globetrotters made a trip to North Korea for a documentary. While there Rodman became very close friends with North Korea’s leader. They actually became so close that Rodman made 2 more visits to North Korea to visit his “friend” as many articles claim he states. In recent news, Dennis Rodman has put the media in a frenzy with the release of his pistachio commercial where a Kim Jong Un look-a-like blows up Rodman (Check the video out for yourself – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hPzLvPbqm_E). Kind of ironic I would say considering the global issues around this incident.
Now the big picture surronding this is the Nuclear bomb scare between North Korea and the United States. Here we have an American citizen – and a well known one at that – that is becoming close friends with the man who holds destruction in the palm of his hands.
