Rodman effort to bring basketball exhibition game to North Korea as birthday gift for Kim Jong Un has strange gambling connection
Mike Caro says:
Dennis Rodman is heading back to the U.S. from North Korea. His mission was possibly financed by Irish bookmaker, Paddy Power, whose executives I met with when I did a poker seminar on their behalf at historic Trinity College in Dublin. But that’s ancient history. This isn’t.
Today, Paddy Power seems to have divorced itself from Rodman’s efforts. It’s a strange story — especially since dictator Kim had his uncle executed only a week or so ago. They’re calling this “basketball diplomacy.” I’m calling it “nuts.” But, at least, it’s fun to follow. — MC
