PYONGYANG, North Korea - NBA player and one of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's best friends, Dennis Rodman has apologized to the North Korean president.
After celebrating Kim Jong Un's 31st birthday with a fabulous party at Pyongyang's Presidential Palace Dennis led a team of former NBA players against a team made up of North Korea's best basketball players.
The United States team clobbered the team from North Korea by a score of 163-17.
Rodman explained to a reporter with The Rice Paddy News Agency that he tried to keep the score down by having his team play with one hand behind their backs during the entire fourth quarter.
Dennis apologized to Kim Jong Un for whipping the daylights out of his national team.
The highly-pierced Rodman also told Kim Jong Un he was sorry for the way he lost his temper in the last quarter causing him to receive two technicals and thus being ejected from the game.
Rodman said that the first technical was a result of one of the North Korean players biting him on the left elbow when they both went up for a rebound.
Dennis responded by hitting the player with the basketball a total of six times before he was stopped by the referees, three of his own teammates, and a rather masculine looking North Korean female cheerleader.
The second technical was a result of a North Korean player telling Rodman that he looked like he could be Whoopi Goldberg's sister.
Rodman chased the player into the stands and ended up sticking an order of cheese nachos in the players shorts.
SIDENOTE: Dennis, in an act of good sportsmanship, did end up giving the game ball to Kim Jong Un's wife, Mrs. Kim Jong Un who amazingly deflated it so it would fit in her purse.
