Good afternoon and welcome to the Daily Dribbles. Have a lot of fun stuff for you today, including all of last night's crazy buzzer-beating action and Dennis Rodman and his new BFF. We also have some new uniforms for you and, of course, the normal amount of snark I can muster. So let's get to it.
I reported a couple days ago Dennis Rodman was in North Korea. While there, he met with the Democratic People's Republic of Korea's (DPRK) top leader Kim Jong Un. The two conversed without a translator, shared a laugh or two and even applied suntan lotion on each other. OK, maybe that last part is a little exaggerated, but Rodman did say he and Marshall Kim Jong Un were friends, and he enjoyed his company. Oh yeah they took in a basketball game too -- between Americans and Koreans -- and it ended in a tie. I'm sure it was a natural occurrence though and there was no fix. Right?
I suppose it could have been wor...

AROUND THE WEB
The attraction between Dennis Rodman and North Korea may indeed be mutual.
On Monday, the news emerged that the former rebounding bad boy would be heading to the politically isolated country to engage in some “basketball diplomacy,” and convince the country to go a peaceful route — which would certainly conflict with its nuclear ambitions. By Wednesday Rodman had apparently...
Ex-NBA star Dennis Rodman met North Korea's Kim Jong Un on Thursday on the third day of his improbable journey to Pyongyang, telling the leader "You have a friend for life," a delegation spokesman said.
Rodman and Kim sat side by side at an exhibition game in Pyongyang on Thursday, chatting as they watched players from North Korea and the U.S. play in mixed teams,...
Dennis Rodman arrived in North Korea this week for a goodwill tour. Yes, Dennis Rodman of all people. Though his wild child reputation makes him an unlikely candidate to thaw relations between the US and North Korea, Kim Jong Un is said to have been a fan of the 1990s Chicago Bulls, with whom Rodman won three championships, so maybe The Worm does have a chance to improve relations...
The State Department is criticizing North Korea for, quote, ''wining and dining'' visiting ex-NBA star Dennis Rodman while its own people go hungry.
Spokesman Patrick Ventrell Friday distanced the U.S. government from Rodman's visit to Pyongyang this week and his praise for the nation's leader Kim Jong Un and his predecessors.
Rodman departed the country...
Eccentric Hall of Famer, Dennis Rodman, raised eyebrows when he made the wrong assumption Tuesday that Psy, famous for ‘Gangnam Style’, a song referencing the lifestyle associated with the Gangnam District of Seoul, the capital of South Korea, was from North Korea. Psy fired back at the playful-intended, but, wrongful Tweet, setting the record straight that he is actually...
Dennis Rodman arrived in North Korea on Tuesday as part of a sports diplomacy initiative with VICE media. Rodman and members of the Harlem Globetrotters will be running a basketball camp for children, which will be filmed for a documentary airing on HBO in April as part of a larger series.
While the foreign relations between the United States and North Korea are as strained as...
If you hadn’t heard Dennis Rodman is on a “tour” of North Korea. And apparently things are going swell. So swell that Rodman has taken a liken to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un after the two took in an exhibition game in Pyongyang.
The two were seen laughing together and even had dinner together. Kim even reportedly told Rodman that “he hoped the visit would break the ice...
He smells like sauce T…
As diplomatic missions go, it’s surely one of the oddest ever seen. Kim Jong Un & Dennis Rodman become best pals. Dennis is doing work in North Korea and making friends for life. North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un and Dennis have shared a meal, a hug, and a basketball game together. Mission complete.-TO
Dennis Rodman Arrives in North Korea
By now you know that Dennis Rodman is spreading the gospel of basketball in North Korea, and rumors swirled that Rodman would get to meet the Supreme Leader of North Korea, Kim Jong Un, who is a basketball fanatic. Well, that definitely happened, as the two sat together at a basketball exhibition featuring Rodman’s touring buddies — the Harlem Globetrotters — and a group of...
We reported on Tuesday that NBA Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman was leading a contingent of basketball players to North Korea for a hoop-oriented tour of the secretive nation. The Worm seemed like an odd choice for a diplomatic mission, but now it all makes sense. The above photo is of Kim Jong Un at a Swiss prep school (what, North Korean schools aren’t good enough?) in the 1990s...
Rodman looks like he has survived a nuke.
