Dennis Rodman is a troll. Before dedicating any more thought to his opinions and politics than you would to those of a subway evangelist, remember that. But that doesn't stop him from being run out on TV and in interviews as an expert in North Korean affairs or racial politics in America. He may just as well start…
Adam Silver, Donald Sterling, Dennis Rodman, and others made appearances in tonight's Saturday Night Live cold open, which didn't skewer the scandal involving the L.A. Clippers owner as much as it did make mildly amusing references to it.
Despite yesterday's mini-mutiny, the game between the Rodman-led former NBA players and a team of North Korean all-stars went off without a hitch today. The NBAers lost the game, because they'd like to return home, but before tip-off Rodman led the crowd in a serenade of Supreme Leader for his birthday.
Dennis Rodman has been gung-ho about his latest trip to North Korea, a matchup between former NBA players and DPRK all-stars as a "birthday present" for Kim Jong-un. He might be the only one. The Associated Press reports that a number of the players on the trip are expressing second thoughts about going through with…
Dennis Rodman has recruited some allies on his latest basketball diplomacy trip to North Korea. Rodman's team will be playing a team of North Korean all-stars on Wednesday, "a birthday present" for BFF Kim Jong-un.
Dennis Rodman is back visiting his buddy Kim Jong-un on yet another PR trip—PR for Rodman, for the Irish betting company that's sponsoring his trip, and for North Korea itself. It comes days after a massive and deadly purge of perceived challenges to Kim's power, and as an American citizen has languished in a Korean…
The Associated Press just published a story about Dennis Rodman's latest endorsement venture and his untethered blather about what good buds he is with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. Read the whole thing here, if you have two minutes for an extra-large helping of starry-eyed banality. Here are some excerpts:
There's a lot to unpack from the video below. First, Dennis Rodman is either part of, or interrupting, a "jazz band" performing at the W hotel in Hollywood. Second, Dennis Rodman antagonizes the crowd about Kobe Bryant, repeatedly saying "fuck him" for unspecified reasons.
Dennis Rodman went to a fashion show in Miami on Monday night, sat in the first row and enjoyed the shit out of himself.
Here's a working barstool-grade theory as to why, during its dynastic run to four (perhaps soon five) titles since 1999, America still embraces the San Antonio Spurs with a yawn and a why are you still here? squint. This phenomenon has flustered if not baffled sports cognoscenti for years. But they play pure,…
This Cleveland Scene profile of strip club bathroom attendant George Deutsch is pretty great. And just in case 'strip club bathroom' doesn't draw you, Deutsch has an anecdote about that one time Dennis Rodman tried to pick a fight with him.
Originally published as "No Rebound" on June 1, 2003, in The New York Times Magazine. Footnotes from the author are included throughout the story.
When Dennis Rodman flew to Rome on the heels of a Vice-organized trip to North Korea (a week later the DPRK abandoned a 60-year-old ceasefire agreement, so, strong work), we all kind of assumed that this was part of Rodman's new career as a diplomat. The selfless Worm, just working for international relations and…
Dennis Rodman is currently headed to the Vatican to try and arrange a meeting with the soon-to-be-elected Pope. This trip comes on the heels of Rodman's visit to North Korea, where he became super good buddies with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. So I guess this is just what Dennis Rodman does now. Neat.
Sean gave Rick Reilly's column a thorough fisking earlier, but here's one more thing. Remember: The conceit is that these are Dennis Rodman's hypothetical reports from present-day global hot spots. Emphasis mine:
Rick Reilly dropped another column today and I figure we should just break it down for everyone because, if you're anything like me, a lot of the higher-brow jokes sometimes goes right over your head. So, we're going to workshop this one.
