I wonder if Denis Rodman knows everybody is laughing at him or if he actually thinks he is impressing people with his "take charge" attitude?!?

Last ditch effort to attain legitimacy.

He was there as a promotion for some betting site or something. He's an idiot

So he went to a Yankees preseason game?

*reads article*

Oh.

From what I've seen he's been utterly shameless pretty much his entire life.  Can't really pretend I'm shocked by his behavior at this point.  I think it would be hilarious if his shenanigans in NK got him put on a watch list and he got detained next time he tried to come into the U.S.

Saw the article link and thought he was back in Chicago.

Obummer?

He's free to do what he wants.  If he wants to visit Chicago....let him.

Isn't Rodman supposed to be broke and behind on his child support payments? Where's he getting the money for these trips?

Rodman. The 'Totalitarian tour'. Coming to a shiathole near you, soon.

Dammit Dennis! When are you going to stop visiting places?

Not really. The guy was a wall flower and a Momma's Boy as a kid. His two older sisters were collegiate basketball stars, and he was ridiculed in their circles when he tagged along as younger siblings do. He was only 5' 6" until hitting his growth spurt at 19 or 20 years old when he blossomed to 6' 7". He had absolutely no basketball skills and flunked out miserably the only time he went to college. But he had a work ethic and got picked up by the Pistons.

At the end of his stint with Detroit he decided that his basic problem was that he was too introverted and shy and vowed to change that personal characteristic. When he got traded to the Spurs he started all his bizarre antics, like dying his hair and getting facial piercings for each new game. None of which would be given a second thought today. He also dated Madonna for a couple months. Something that really messed with the Spur's front office image of wholesomeness. But then he head-butted another player or referee (can't remember which, or was it both?) and kicked a court-side cameraman among other things that made him look worse than just a Bad Boy.

In the end he had an NBA career that included being instrumental in winning more consecutive titles than any other team, as well as setting defensive records that have still not been surpassed to this day. He's had a few legal problems with domestic violence and DUIs, but he's certainly not the violent psychopathic criminal many other, far more privileged, professional athletes have been.

Rodman is a washed up old athlete trying to earn a living. In that respect he's still a success. I wouldn't call him shameless unless you expect him to just collect food stamps and welfare so nobody has to hear about him anymore.

/old Spurs fan who hated rodman then
//got old and mellowed out
 
2013-03-14 09:37:28 AM  
So he's playing for the Bulls again? They ruined a few lives back in their day...
 
2013-03-14 09:39:44 AM  
I still don't understand how he survived living in Texas.

So Rodman played with the Celts from the '58-'59 through the '65-'66 seasons?

Or did you mean to say something different there?

No, I'd be fine with him keeping himself employed in the media in some form, or working as a basketball coach or something along those lines.  What bothers me is his buddying up with the dictator of a country with a long history of human rights abuses, and now whoring himself for a gambling outfit running bets on who would be the next pope.  According to a few sources at least, he didn't even know the name of the guy he was supposedly there to cheer for.  I didn't think it was possible, but I'd say he's actually sunk lower than a Kardashian because he actually has marketable skills and has chosen this route instead.

My bad. Should have known better than to say that without Goggling. Point remains, he was instrumental on one of the best NBA championship teams in history.

Thanks for the correction.

Did they welcome him with open boys?

People with big egos usually think that they are impressing others, not being laughed at.

Perhaps your mistake is taking Rodman and Kim Jong-un too serious? Oh, I know some people don't get that world leaders often put out propaganda that's meant for internal consumption while knowing full well nobody else gives it a second thought. Personally, I'm more concerned with the statements of former US government officials like Josh Bolton, Dick Cheney and the rest of the Chicken Hawks, who think it's really a good idea to get us involved in protracted military conflicts and quagmires than what some stupid basketball star thinks.

But that's just me.

It's like the modern day equivalent of following the stories of George Hamilton or Christina Ford yucking it up with Imelda Marcos.

If you're now saying "who?"   My response is, "Yeah.  Exactly."

All this Rodman attention will be on the new fall TV line up. new reality show, "DR What a Tool"

He did an interview with Howard Stern yesterday that was rambling, but interesting all the same. He seems to really consider himself some sort of cultural ambassador/journalist who has a chance to build bridges. He's mistaken, but that seems to be his view.

Oh, jeebus freaking christ. You listen to Stern and take that nonsense serious in the context of world affairs? I suppose you thought that f*cking weirdo Donald Trump was serious about running for president? Please, just because some asshole broadcasts retardation doesn't mean you have to dig a bunker in the back yard and stock pile provisions for the next 5,000 years.

Idiots.
