The ludicrous, but true, premise of Argo has nothing on this: Dennis Rodman is now in North Korea. Is he really there for basketball diplomacy, setting up a kids clinic with members of the Harlem Globetrotters? Is it really for a production that will appear on HBO in the spring?
Or is that just a cover while Rodman puts his real skills toward stopping North Korea’s nuclear program and missile tests?
Hey, stranger things have happ . . . well, no, they haven’t.
But Rodman really is there now, reportedly having arrived in Pyongyang, with three Globetrotters, making his presence felt in a country with a seriously tense relationship with the U.S. He also is meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, who’s a Michael Jordan fan.
