    Rodman and the Harlem Globetrotters arrived today for a "diplomacy through basketball" such-and-such. Interesting to note that Kim Jong Un was apparently a huge fan of the 1990s Bulls. I wonder if he's pissed we didn't send Jordan or Pippen.

    What would sending Pete Myers imply?

    The Great Leader Kim Jong Il once recorded 107 rebounds in a game featuring eight-minute quarters and a running clock.

    PYONGYANG (AP) — A diplomatic basketball mission turned into tragedy Tuesday when the Harlem Globetrotters pulled their famous "bucket of confetti" trick on North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Seven members of the traveling basketball troupe were executed outside the arena for their part in the nefarious gag, and six others were sentenced to 30 years of forced labor.
    Kim Jong Un was sitting courtside when Globetrotters guard "Cheese" Chisholm threatened to dump a bucket of water on North Korea's "dear leader." A half-dozen security guards tackled Chisholm immediately, beating him with batons and his own bucket as confetti drifted slowly onto the floor and his bloodied body.
    The North Korean News Agency reported that Chisholm survived the event, but was being held in a hospital for observation. He was expected to be treated and released on Jan. 1, 2043.
    Four other Globetrotters who were on the court with Chisholm at the time of the confetti-fueled assault were taken to the bowels of the arena and summarily executed, NKNA reported. Also executed were team manager Jimmy "Too Cool" Phillips, who allegedly supplied the confetti bucket, and Washington Generals coach Red Klotz.
    Klotz did not participate in the confetti gag, and his team was losing by 58 points in the second quarter when the incident occurred. NKNA reported that Kim Jong Un ordered Klotz killed for "crimes against basketball" and to atone for bankrupting the country in 1982 when former North Korean leader Kim Jong Il bet $50 million on the Generals after they took a 4-0 lead during a previous goodwill trip to the country.

    Saw a television report this morning indicating Rodman didn't know which Korea he was in.

    I wonder if Rodman brought his wedding dress along.

    It's kind of funny and odd, but I remember seeing the Globetrotters in East Germany or Russia on Wide World of Sports back in the day and it was the first time I'd seen people in that part of the world laugh. Saw them do the same thing in China.

    Phil Jackson should have accompanied them. Perhaps the Zenmeister could have penetrated the head of the nutjob leader without being executed for his attempt.

    They were going to send Pippen, but he begged out so he stayed on the bench and they sent Kukoc instead.
