What do you make of this latest round of “basketball diplomacy” where the Worm meets Kim?
“I’m not going to North Korea to discuss freeing Kenneth Bae,” Mr. Rodman, a Basketball Hall of Fame member, told Reuters in a telephone interview. “I’m just going there on another basketball diplomacy tour.” Mr. Kim is known to be a fervent basketball fan, and the two watched a game together during Mr. Rodman’s previous visit.
At the same time, U.S. Special Envoy Robert King’s invitation was rescinded. (He is a BYU graduate and spoke at the Kennedy Center last year.)
