For the Love of the Game


This just came off the court, Dennis Rodman and Kim Jong Un have just shared a relationship that will last a lifetime and all for the love of the game, basketball.  Rodman even mentioned to Kim Jong Un that you have a friend for life.  I don't even want to get into politics at this point but will stress that basketball might have just saved everybody's ass.

 Kim Jong Un is a big basketball fan and what better guy to relate to then colorful Dennis Rodman, Rodman and Kim sat side by side at an exhibition game in Pyongyang on Thursday, chatting as they watched players from North Korea and the U.S. play in mixed teams. Thursday's game in Pyongyang was played with a packed gymnasium ended in an 110-110 draw, with two Americans playing on each team alongside North Koreans. The teams consisted of VICE (responsible for photo, nice by the way) correspondent Ryan Duffy, Moose Weekes, Buckets Blakes, and Bull Bullard of the Harlem Globetrotters, and North Korea's "Dream Team," all of whom played their hearts out in what we have termed a "basketball diplomacy" mission.

Alright everybody just take this in,  for what we have just witnessed is we are all the same for we love something.  Instead of War like the politics impose throughout the world how about basketball to settle differences and since this has started with Kim and Dennis, they could help you pick your team and that is to play instead of pray.  Kim and Dennis you two have just shown the world in how to get along, you guys are my hero.  Keep politics out bring on the game where the players are appreciated instead of hated.

This game in North Korea will air on HBO produced by VICE and thank you Kim Jong Un for having us,  I wish we all could have been there.

Here is a decent clip on all of this without the skepticism.

A clip of Dennis you might not have seen which really shines a light on this colorful man,  you'll feel what I mean.  You did a great job with that man Phil Jackson, thanks, coach! Your work might have just saved our butts on this planet. 

To think the Bulls grabbed shooting guard Michael Jordan in 1984 and in 1989-90 where head coach Doug Collins was replaced by assistant Phil Jackson was more than the beginning of a championship team but a franchise that would leave the world with their jaws on the floor with the outcome of the North Korean basketball game with Kim and Dennis. The hell with politics, let this be the lesson to being more humane than human.
