Former NBA legend Dennis Rodman is no stranger to controversy. Rodman, throughout his career, was a bulldog on the court, and known for his (literally) colorful personality. From tie-died hair, to dozens of tattoos and piercings, Rodman always mystified fans.

Then a few years ago, Rodman intrigued the American audience like never before, after befriending North Korean dictator, Kim Jong Un.




Rodman has visited the communist nation a number of times since, engaging in what he calls “basketball diplomacy.” In 2013, Rodman even helped bring the Harlem Globetrotters to North Korea.

Rodman has again returned to the communist nation, this time with a different gift in hand: Donald Trump’s The Art of the Deal.

CNN reports:

“Dennis Rodman may not have been sent to North Korea by US President Donald Trump, but that’s not stopping the former basketball star from promoting his former reality TV co-star.

Rodman, who landed in Pyongyang Tuesday, was photographed presenting North Korean Sports Minister Kim Il Guk with a copy of Trump’s book, ‘Trump: The Art of the Deal.'”

Among the other gifts given to the North Korean minister was the book Where’s Waldo, two basketball jerseys, and fragrances.
