Dennis Rodman wasn't always a punchline.
Believe it or not, Rodman used to be known for his theatrics on a basketball court. Before the wedding dress, before the "Saturday Night Live" skits, and before he became the most bizarre athlete of our generation, he was actually known for being a pretty good basketball player.
His basketball feats are hard to remember based on his recent behavior. Yesterday Rodman went to North Korea to train basketball players for an exhibition game to celebrate Kim Jong Un's birthday. It's strange enough that Rodman is doing this, considering the swirling controversy around Jong Un. But in typical Rodman fashion, the weirdness gets turned up a notch, as he regularly refers to Jong Un as a friend.
