NBA commissioner David Stern thought roughly as highly of Dennis Rodman’s trip to North Korea as the rest of us did — an international clownshow.

Rodman was invited by Kim Jong-Un himself to play the role of totally unqualified ambassador to the oppressive, nuclear-capable and historically reclusive North Korean regime. When asked, Stern described the situation as “ridiculous”.

Apparently, The Worm did not see it that way: Upon his return Stateside, Rodman was kicked out of a bar for drunkenly screaming about how great Kim Jong-Un is.
