Some insane basketball players change their name to World Peace. In the meantime, another insane basketball player could hold the key to world peace.

That’s right… we’re talking about Dennis Rodman.

Perhaps the unlikeliest cultural ambassador in world history, Rodman is heading to North Korea this week along with three members of the Harlem Globetrotters and a TV crew from something called VICE media, as initially reported by the Associated Press.

The Worm will be running a basketball camp for North Korean youths and playing pickup games with the locals for what is bound to be the greatest experiment in the history of reality television. (In other words, the first good experiment).

Rodman is arriving as rhetoric heats up between the US and North Korea, as the Koreans are reportedly attempting to work on a nuclear bomb capable of reaching Hawaii since they’ve apparently figured out how to launch things more than 100 yards now.

The idea, theoretically, is that maybe Rodman could spark something similar to the “ping-pong diplomacy” that helped open the doors between the US and the People’s Republic of China.

Though unconventional, in a way it makes sense — Kim Jong Il was supposedly a big fan of the Jordan-era Bulls, and one can only imagine son Kim Jong Un was similarly smitten. The Bulls 72-10 team was likely the closest thing sports has ever seen to Kim Jong Il shooting an 18 the first time he ever played golf.

Of course, with Rodman involved there’s also a chance of him going down in the history books as the next Gavrilo Princip after triggering a massive international incident. Let’s just hope there are no replays of this or this.

  2. hoho, the world-class foul player in basketball is flying to North Korea to meet with his counterparts, world-class foul players in politics and human rights abusers. Go for it, Dennis, for your name’s sake. Be sure to teach the “stinky worms” in Pyongyang how to pierce their noses, ears, lips, … and dicks.
