I'll start off by this is the coolest news I've heard all week: any time Charles Smith, Vin Baker, Cliff Robinson and Doug Christie are in a recent news article, it's truly fabulous in my opinion. But there's a lot of uneasiness in their trip to North Korea along with Dennis Rodman, who has planned this visit for a friendly basketball game.
"What we are doing is positive, but it is getting dwarfed by the other circumstances around it," Charles Smith, 48, told The Associated Press. "Apparently our message is not being conveyed properly due to the circumstances that are much bigger than us, and I think that has to do with politics and government."
"You have 10 guys here, 10 guys who have left their damn families to help this country in a sports venture," Rodman shouted at CNN's Chris Cuomo, when asked about North Korea's abysmal human rights record.

Man, Vin and Cliff look perturbed!
Dennis with Ri Myung Hun, he's 7 Foot 9 People!
I'm not caught up in politics at all, nor would I ever try and turn this into a political forum, but unless you're living under a rock there's probably a good chance you heard of all the crap going on in North Korea. What's your take on this? Is Rodman insane for trying this out? Or is there an underlying resourcefulness to his plan? Sound off below.
