Dennis Rodman’s homage to Kim Il Sung revealed

Previously unseen inscription shows Rodman's homage to DPRK founding leader Kim Il Sung

NEW YORK CITY - Dennis Rodman’s February visit to North Korea is the gift that keeps on giving. Thanks to an exclusive dispatch from Young Pioneer Tours partner and tour-guide Joseph Ferris III, NK News can reveal new insights into Rodman's trip and further evidence of North Korea's long love of NBA basketball.

While leading a recent trip to Pyongyang, where he was leading a group for YPT, Ferris and Co. took in the Grand People’s Study House -- and happened upon this book featuring an illustration of what appears to be a North Korean wearing the uniform of Chicago Bulls shooting guard/small forward Richard “Rip” Hamilton.
