It looks like Dennis Rodman is hanging up his foreign diplomat hat and putting on his coaching hat instead!
In a story that just seems to get stranger and stranger, the former NBA superstar recently returned from his quick trip to North Korea and held a press conference to talk a bit about his visit, but he had no intentions about talking politics!
Instead, he focused on a subject he actually knows a thing or two about: Basketball!
Dennis announced that he would eventually be returning to North Korea and that he plans on training their basketball team for the 2016 Olympics in Rio!
But if that's not weird enough for you, he also says he's arranging a game between their squad and a team of former NBA players here in the U.S. sometime in January!
Why, you ask? To celebrate Kim Jong-Un's birthday, of course!
Dennis insists he has no intention of getting involved in any of the politics, however, he clearly believes he is opening doors between the U.S. and North Korea and continues to assert that Kim Jong-Un is generally a pretty good dude.
We've said it once and we'll say it a billion times: Stick to basketball, Dennis!
