Former Chicago Bull’s basketball player Dennis Rodman thinks he should be in the running for a Nobel Peace Prize following his meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un earlier this year.

In Sports Illustrated’s annual “Where Are They Now” issue, the hall of famer applauds Kim Jong Un for what could be called restraint on behalf of the reclusive leader. “Fact is, he hasn’t bombed anywhere he’s threatened to yet. Not South Korea, not Hawaii, not … whatever,” Rodman said.
[…]
“All I know is Kim told me he doesn’t want to go to war with America. His whole deal is to talk basketball with Obama,” Rodman is quoted as saying in Sports Illustrated. “Unfortunately, Obama doesn’t want to have anything to do with him. I ask, Mr. President, what’s the harm in a simple phone call? This is a new age, man. Come on, Obama, reach out to Kim and be his friend.”

Spoken like a true statesman.

    They are already close friends, dipshit.

    And they are getting closer every day.

    Stick to basketball, douchebag.

      How may drones has Rodman fired or ordered? He’s worthy of a nobel peace prize.

  2. Captain Obvious says:

    I’d give Rodman for shutting down Shaq during the ’96 playoffs.

    • Jim says:

      agreed. he was one of the best rebounders and defensive players in the modern game. he probably only went wacko with the hair and other behavior because he wasn’t getting as many kudos for doing the grunt work as he thought he should.

    Aint that nice?

  4. Fred says:

    If Rodman promises to support the US fighting in multiple wars. If he is willing to help destabilize a few countries; converting them from tourist destinations into Islamic hellholes. Finally and most important, he has to know how to utilize a fancy kill list driven drone program. Only then would he to be an acceptable candidate for the new and improved “Obama approved” peace prize.

      You also have to run a secret aerial bombing campaign in a country you aren’t at war with to win the Kissenger/Obama award

  5. MikeN says:

    Rodman doesn’t get it. You have to attack George Bush to win a Peace Prize. Either that or be seen as in the Bill Clinton bubble, so as to annoy him when they give you a prize instead of him. Al Gore, his Democratic predecessor, his Democratic successor after a few months in office.

    Why didn’t NK keep that asshole, they keep everyone else that enters the country.

    • orchidcup says:

      He is a black guy with a nose ring.

      His presence would destabilize society.

      Besides, the fearless leader of North Korea would be required to compete in the hero worship arena.

    “Dear Leader told us american imperialism is a bunch of shit and that all their overlords are liars — And, sure enough, american imperialism is a bunch of shit and all its overlords are all liars.”

    • Msbpodcast says:

      Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean that Best Korea isn’t full of shit too. (And a whole lot of dead from starvation North Koreans too.)

      You have to pay attention to the language … because words do matter. :-)

      • Tim says:

        Dear Leader said you would say that — And, sure enough, you said that.

      • Tim says:

        Dear Leader said… Ahh, fuck it. Rodman held my cat down while that sawed-off, fetus-fingered, chia-pet-haired pervert humped it in front of my flipper-footed wife and mal-nourished child.

        Well, I’ve got to go sign in to get executed now; At least, I have a choice of tobacco or cannabis for the last smoke…

  8. Somebody says:

    For a second I thought you meant the Korean.

    He made it with Carmen Electra.

    I wonder what their pillow talk was all about?
