Before leading a squad of former NBA players in a friendly game of b-ball, Rodman sang happy birthday to the North Korean strongman. (Scroll down to watch.).
Rodman – who’s been roundly criticized for his “basketball diplomacy” back in the US – dedicated the game to his “best friend” Kim, who along with his wife and other senior officials and their wives watched from a special seating area. The capacity crowd of about 14,000 at the Pyongyang Indoor Stadium clapped loudly as Rodman sang a verse from the birthday song.
Rodman said he was honored to be able to play the game in the North Korean capital, and called the event “historic.” To keep it friendly, the Americans played against the North Koreans in the first half, but split up and merged teams for the second half.
