Even in retirement Dennis Rodman still manages to get on David Stern’s nerves. In an interview with 60 Minutes, David Stern was asked by the interviewer Chris Rose about Dennis Rodman’s diplomatic pilgrimage to North Korea, where he met with their supreme leader Kim Jong Un, who has less than a stellar reputation outside his domain. Let’s just say that Stern doesn’t approve of Rodman’s BFF. “I think it’s ridiculous. I think that if you’re going to meet someone with the record on human rights, and nuclear testing in a reckless way, counterfeiting U.S. dollars, and exporting a horrible brand of whatever it is that he’s exporting, starving his people, and locking them up, it should be done only in conjunction with the State Department with an agenda. If not, you shouldn’t go.” Rose then suggested that Rodman may have not known he was going to meet with Un when he agreed to go on the diplomatic mission, Stern saw ignorance as no excuse. “No. But then it was the burden of somebody to try to educate Dennis a little bit so he doesn’t come back and say, ‘the dude is really cool. His father was great. His grandfather was great. And really why doesn’t the President just give him a buzz?’” I can’t say I disagree with the angel of Stern on this topic, Rodman is obviously unaware of some of the atrocious crimes this man and his administration are accused of committing, I don’t know if aligning oneself with someone like that is the smartest move but Rodman has always been a free spirit for lack of a better word.
