The NBA is a truly international league for even despots love NBA basketball
The colorful former NBA star known as “The Worm” elicited widespread condemnation Tuesday when he suggested in an exclusive interview with Chris Cuomo of CNN’s “New Day” that American Kenneth Bae had done something to deserve his 15-year sentence.
On Wednesday, Bae’s family accused Rodman of “playing games” with Bae’s life. Relatives and U.S. officials have insisted Bae committed no crime.
“There is no diplomacy, only games, and at my brother’s expense,” Bae’s sister, Terri Chung, said Wednesday in a prepared statement.[…]
Instead, she said he made the situation worse in his Tuesday CNN interview by intimating that Bae was guilty.
“Do you understand what he did in this country?” Rodman asked Cuomo. “No, no, no, you tell me, you tell me. Why is he held captive here in this country, why?”
Just let “The Worm” slither away to North Korea forever.
