    Rodman says he will help train North Korean hoops team for 2016 Olympics

    North Korea’s basketball team has an uphill struggle to even get into the 2016 Rio Olympics — they need to beat China in the Asia qualifying tournament in 2015, or at least play well enough in that tournament to get invited to the 2016 pre-Olympic qualifying tournament (the best teams from around the globe not already in) and win one of the three spots up for grabs there. Let’s be kind and say a team that hasn’t competed in FIBA’s Asia championships since 1999 is unlikely to make that cut.

    But Dennis Rodman says he is going to help North Korea get there.

    Rodman, fresh off his second visit with his friend North Korea’s dictator Kim Jong Un, will help train the North Koreans for the Olympics, he said at a press conference on Monday (as reported by Time).

    Rodman also said he is putting together a couple exhibition games in North Korea where he will bring former NBA players over, with the first of the games scheduled for Jan. 8 (Kim’s birthday). Rodman talked about “basketball diplomacy” and how these games would be a good thing.

    I don’t know what to say about this, other than it’s just Rodman being Rodman. I really think this ironic quote from Rodman at his presser pretty much sums the entire thing up:

    “I’ll tell you guys one thing: take me seriously.”

    I think Rodman feels he has to do these ridiculous things just to stay relevant.

    Orgies are punishable by death over there. Rodman better be careful.

    What if someone from a school of business or management school were to ask, How did you do this? How did you get the Pacers turned around? Is there a general approach you've taken that can be summarized?

    Larry Bird: Yeah, patience.

    Rules are for common folk, not the ruling class.

    Of course, that's true here as well as there...
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    I immediately got this mental image of a bunch of short dudes with lots of tats and piercings that can't play a lick pulling some of Rodman's on court antics.

    Rodman could have an orgy with every female in North Korea, and as far as I'm concerned he still wouldn't be relevant. His 15 minutes are long passed.

    I'm curious as to what exactly he will be training these guys to do.

    How to position yourself for a rebound, or how to flop?

    This is just funny to me. And should never be taken seriously. It is just too bizarre to think of it.

    I would not be surprised to find out soon that he is going to stay there indefinetly. Dear leader finds him irresistible and just loves Basketball. They'll name him official sports ambassador.

    He will be their official sports ambassador until they lose and then he will just be executed.
