Guess who gets a basketball-themed birthday bash from Dennis Rodman

The former NBA great has made headlines from his visits to North Korea and the reclusive dictator Kim Jong-un, and now Rodman has announced plans to help train the North Korean Olympic basketball team and organize a game early next year in Pyongyang featuring a dozen former NBA players for Kim’s birthday. No word yet on who the lucky 12 will be.

Rodman also spilled the beans on the name of Kim’s new baby daughter, and Slate reports that he considers Kim a “good dad”. But as to the angry and expletive response Rodman gave when asked about pressing for the release of an American being held in a North Korean prison, our rules on foul language means you’ll have to click the Slate link.
