Former NBA Star Dennis Rodman Tells Sports Illustrated that He Should be Considered for Nobel Peace Prize, If Obama Can Win For Doing Nothing, Why Not The Worm?
Former NBA star Dennis Rodman thinks he should be considered for the Nobel Peace prize … “Basketball Diplomacy”.
The always outrageous and ever-controversial Dennis Rodman thinks that he should be considered the for the Nobel Peace Prize for hos efforts in International “basketball” diplomacy with North Korean communist dictator Kim Jong Un. So before we trash the media seeking Rodman too much for his latest attempt to remain relevant and in the TV eye, let’s consider some of the past winners of the Nobel Peace Prize that have included Yasser Arafat, Al Gore and President Obama. When Barack Obama can win the Nobel Peace Prize for accomplishing absolutely nothing, the award has pretty much been diminished to a watered down joke. Add the likes of Al “global warming” Gore and a terrorist Yasser Arafat to the mix and I say why not Dennis Rodman.
With the past record of Nobel Peace Prize winners, isn’t this exactly what committee is looking for? As stated at The Daily Caller, “And then you get to keep it, even after you’ve turned it into a sick joke! So, why shouldn’t Rodman win one for buddying up with a blood-soaked dictator?”
From Sports Illustrated:
This year’s cover story is arguably the maddest of the Mad Libs: Dennis Rodman goes to North Korea in hopes of normalizing relations between the country and the United States and capturing a Nobel Peace Prize.
The eccentric, uninhibited basketball Hall of Famer drew untold headlines this year when he accompanied HBO’s Vice and members of the Harlem Globetrotters on a trip to North Korea, one of the least-accessible countries to Americans and a place with one of the world’s worst records on human rights. Franz Lidz caught up with Rodman for the story behind the story, revealing the former Bulls star’s surreal experiences with North Korea’s new leadership, his plans for international diplomacy and peace, and, yes, his belief that he should be considered for a Nobel, an honor bestowed on the likes of Barack Obama, Jimmy Carter, Nelson Mandela, Elie Wiesel, Mother Teresa and Martin Luther King Jr.
