Rodman to 'have some fun' in North Korea

  • Dennis Rodman is visiting North Korea for the third time to train the nation's national basketball team for four days. 

    Reports suggest that an unannounced team of ex-NBA players are expected to play in Pyongyang for Kim Jong Un's birthday celebrations next month. According to an expert, it's not clear if Rodman will meet Kim during his visit but he could play an important role for the regime. 

    "Kim Jong Un needs to show that his regime, his government, is united, which it isn't," an expert said. He mentioned that people will be smiling and the fact that everything will look normal, will be better for the regime. 

    Rodman said he doesn't have any control over anything in the region and only wants to "do a basketball game and have some fun."
