• Rodman fails to meet N. Korea leader


    BEIJING: Former National Basketball Association (NBA) star Dennis Rodman returned from North Korea on Monday, saying he did not meet “awesome” Kim Jong-Un on his third visit to the reclusive state but was unfazed by the lack of contact. The heavily tattooed Rodman has developed an unlikely relationship with Kim since making his first trip in March, when he declared the leader a “friend for life”, and is organizing an exhibition basketball game on January 8 to mark his birthday. Asked how he felt about the lack of face-to-face contact with the young ruler after landing at Beijing airport, Rodman said: “I am not worried about it.” He added: “I’ll see him again.” “He is awesome, man,” Rodman said when asked about Kim as he was being ushered out of the airport by security.  “We’re going to be playing in two weeks,” he added, referring to the match between North Korea and a team of mainly former NBA players.
