What’s all This Rodman/Korea Hoopla? PLUS Watch Footage of the Game

This is mainly for all the ladies who had been wondering what this Dennis Rodman hoopla is all about. I’m  a basketball fan and even a Rodman fan, but I’m not that politically inclined, soooo when I saw the NBA star going off (once again) with some guy on CNN, I had to find out what was really going on.

Dennis Rodman was in North Korea with other former NBA players for a basketball game against the North Korean Senior National Team on the birthday of the country’s leader, the infamous Kim Jong Un.

The American team consisted of OG players Kenny Anderson, Cliff Robinson, Vin Baker, Craig Hodges, Doug Christie, and Charles D. Smith.

Kim Jong Un, an actual friend of Rodman’s,  imprisoned Kenneth Bae, a Korean-American Christian missionary who was  sentenced to 15 years hard labor.

Rodman, the controversial former NBA star  elicited widespread condemnation Tuesday when he suggested in an exclusive interview with Chris Cuomo of CNN’s “New Day” that  Bae had done something to deserve his 15-year sentence.

After Rodman apologized for his comments regarding  Bae and for flipping out on Cuomo, he then said it was not his job to address concerns about the repressive state of Korea or  lobby for the release of the detained U.S. citizen.

What was shocking, even for supporters of the American team to watch, was Rodman (on Wednesday) leading a singalong of “Happy Birthday” to the leader of North Korea, a man he calls a friend and a “very good guy,” but considered by many a brutal dictator who recently ordered the execution of his own uncle.

That same day, Bae’s family accused Rodman of “playing games” with Bae’s life. Relatives and U.S. officials have insisted Bae committed no crime.

In the end, North Korea won the game.

Fellow player Charles D. Smith later admitted that he felt the game may have been a mistake due to the Bae situation, but said he would continue to stand strong with his decision to play the game.

Jayson Williams Sentenced to Five Years in Prison






The plastic surgeon who operated on Kanye West’s mother before she died has been sentenced to a year in jail for drunken driving.

Dr. Jan Adams pleaded no contest to misdemeanor drunken driving last year.

Authorities say his Jaguar was spotted early June 26 traveling the wrong way on Interstate 680 near Cordelia. Adams’ blood alcohol level was .20 percent.

Solano County Court Commissioner Ray Wieser sentenced the 54-year-old surgeon, author and TV personality Monday. He’ll get credit for eight days he previously was jailed.

Adams performed breast reduction, tummy tuck and liposuction on Donda West a day before she died in 2007. An autopsy blamed heart disease joined with complications from the surgery.




The 61-year-old Hall of Famer paid attention stone-faced, his wrists in shackles, as Judge Jackie Glass pronounced the sentence — 33 years behind bars with eligibility for parole after less than a third of that.

Seconds before, Simpson made a rambling, five-minute plea for leniency, simultaneouslng expressing regret for the robbery and trying to justify his actions.

He choked back tears as he told her: “I didn’t want to steal anything from anyone. … I’m sorry, sorry.”

The judge has continuously stated that her sentence in the Las Vegas case had nothing to do with Simpson’s 1995 acquittal in the homicide of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman.

“I’m not here to try and cause any retribution or any payback for anything else,” Glass said.




Shamed former American football star O.J. Simpson has been sentenced to at least 15 years in prison for armed robbery and kidnapping.

Simpson was found guilty in October of the September 2007 gunpoint robbery of a pair of sports memorabilia dealers in a casino hotel room.

The once respected sporting hero was convicted almost 13 years to the day after his acquittal of the killings of his former wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ronald Goldman.

Prior to his sentencing, a surprised Simpson made an apology for his role part in the armed altercation and maintained he was merely trying to regain stolen family property.
