Dennis Rodman RumorsAll NBA Players
Rodman told Joe Buck on his interview program “Undeniable” that his two-season relationship with Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, then the team’s general manager, was not good and eroded the longer he stayed in San Antonio. “The city kind of embraced me, but what’s his name, Popovich, he hated me,” Rodman said. “He hated my guts because I wasn’t a bible guy. They looked at me like I was the devil.” Late in his time in San Antonio, Rodman said he tried to mend his relationship with Popovich and his teammates. “With Pop, I’ve got to be cool until I started acting out again,” Rodman said. “It was kind of like they don’t want me here.”
John Salley 100% has the back of his old Bad Boys teammate Dennis Rodman … saying the human rights organization calling for revoking The Worm’s Hall Of Fame status is full of B.S. As we previously reported … The Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation is upset with Dennis over his relationship with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
A major human rights org is calling for the Basketball Hall of Fame to BOOT Dennis Rodman over his relationship with Kim Jong-un — saying it’s not right to publicly support a “murderer.” The Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation — a non-profit org established by Congress in ’94 — is furious with The Worm over his recent visit to N. Korea and his ongoing relationship with the country’s leader.
The Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation has started a petition on change.org calling for the NBA to remove Dennis Rodman from the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame following his praise and defense of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. In the petition, the foundation said that Rodman has consistently defended Jong-un, who Rodman calls his “friend for life”.
Dennis Rodman has returned from a five-day trip to North Korea, but he did not meet with a man he once called his “friend for life” — Kim Jong Un. The colorful retired basketball player did not speak to reporters waiting for him when he arrived in Beijing after leaving Pyongyang. After a disastrous trip in 2014, Rodman’s fifth journey into North Korea seemed to be something of a redemption tour. It was relatively low-key and passed without major controversy.
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.” The NBA Hall of Famer is perhaps the only person in the world who has personal relationships with both the US President — he participated on Trump’s pre-presidency reality TV show, “The Celebrity Apprentice” — and North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un.
