Other NBA greats such as Charles Smith, Cliff Robinson, Vin Baker, & Doug Christie joined him to name a few...

 

Do you guys think CNN's Chris Cuomo was out of line at all or Dennis or both?

Praying for 1. Kobe's Health (looks pretty good so far), 2. High Draft Pick (Randle...injured game #1.*sigh*) 3. Miracle Trade (Not yet), 4. Quality Free Agent (Boozer, kind of, Davis, nice upside!), 5. Brilliant Coaching Hire (Byron!...but the jury is out)

To all the confused folks it's quite simple what he is saying... The 10 of them are in unfamiliar territory and all their lives can be put in immediate danger with one wrong word, this is the cause of his stuttering and anger. He has to look out for the safety of his team. Shame on the reporter for pushing such dangerous questions on him. Like Dennis said, the reporter is in the safety of his chair and air condition office asking questions from miles away. I'm not saying that the questions he's asking are irrelevant, but simply not the time and place to be asked... or with the right people.



It makes sense for Rodman saying "We've got 10 guys here"  

The Reporter is endangering Dennis life with questions like that AND his team.

Thank you, I thought this was obvious. There is also a possibility that Rodman's intentions are very much different than what he is stating on TV. What exactly do you expect Rodman to say? "Yeah, I'll be sure to ask about Kenneth Bae." Saying such things will not only damage his relationship with Kim Jong-un, but it could actually put his life in danger. Saying the wrong words could spark Kim Jong-un to imprison or kill Rodman, it would certainly be a big middle finger to the United States. I'm not saying this is what is happening, but I am saying it is a possibility that we shouldn't overlook. This could all be a social engineer.

 

We also can't rule out that Rodman isn't already working with the government. The government is notorious for using civilians in intelligence missions and other. I mean let's get real here, Rodman might have other motives ala the federal government and has a gag order placed on him preventing him from speaking out. This is a goldmine opportunity for the CIA, trust me, the last thing they want is North Korea knowing that they are involved. This means secrecy, not publicity.

I wonder when Rodman gets back whether he'll try & have a personal talk with him (reporter).

I dont know what to make of all this. Rodman used to be one of my favorite players, but he's off the rails. Why the hell would he want to go to North Korea in the first place and if it's some kind of peace/bring nations together thing, it's clearly not working. He's too incoherent and weird to get any messages across.

Rodman is an idiot.

 

This guy is befriending one of the world's most dangerous men and thinks he's going to make a difference.  He's not.

^ You don't even think he deserves a single ounce of credit whatsoever for at least trying or even having some courage at all?

^ Ya' see, that's where we disagree. I actually agree with you that ultimately, this won't change a thing at all (unfortunately), but him at least trying something as opposed to anyone else and taking this huge risk is at the least somewhat commendable by me. He is well-intentioned and I don't think one should completely hate on that, but that's just my opinion at least.

I think you guys are giving Rodman too much credit, I really doubt the guy has the capacity to do anything more than basketball and talk a lot.
He doesn't have that kind of intelligence.
