Dennis Rodman: Kim Jong Un is a 'friend for life'

Dennis Rodman told Kim Jong Un he had a "friend for life" after watching a made-for-television basketball exhibition with the North Korean leader on Thursday.

The eccentric basketball Hall of Famer was in Pyongyang to film an episode of HBO's upcoming show, VICE. He sat courtside with Kim during the game and spoke to him in both English and through a Korean translator, according to the AP.

Each team featured two Americans playing with North Koreans. Three of the Americans were Harlem Globetrotters. Another was a VICE producer.

The game ended in a 110-110 tie, suggesting the result was as legitimate as Kim Jong-Il's old golf scores.

Pictures from VICE show Kim and Rodman laughing, while Kim's countrymen stoically watch the game. Rodman was conspicuously wearing a USA Basketball hat while drinking Coca-Cola. Nice.

A wider shot showing the crowd makes it seems like it was "black military shirt" giveaway night at the arena.

Other than the "friend for life" comment, Rodman's post-game message is unknown, but we'd like to think he sounded something like Rocky at the end of Rocky IV.....
