It's a strange combination.
What’s the Point?
According to Vice, there are three American citizens currently being detained in North Korea, but Dennis insists that that has nothing to do with why he’s making the trip.
He told CNN, “That’s not my purpose right now. My purpose is to go over there and try to see if I can keep bringing sports to North Korea.” This is all part of his technique of what he calls “basketball diplomacy.”
On the Right Path
With tensions between the U.S. and North Korea as high as they are, the fact that Dennis is on good enough terms with Korea to go back and forth multiple times is pretty significant.
The fact that he’s funded by money made from weed dispensaries is pretty progressive, too.
