Rodman to Kim: ‘You Have a Friend For Life’


Former NBA bad boy and Celebrity Rehab star Dennis Rodman traveled to North Korea as part of a delegation with several Harlem Globetrotters to film an episode for the new HBO series Vice on Feb. 28.

Rodman and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un sat side-by-side at an exhibition game in Pyongyang consisting of Harlem Globetrotters and North Korean players.



The pair seemed to enjoy each others company, according to Vice Media founder Shane Smith. “They bonded during the game … they were both enjoying the crazy shots, and the Harlem Globetrotters were putting on quite a show,” he said.

Rodman addressed Kim, declaring “you have a friend for life” at the conclusion of the game.
