SOUNDBITE (English) Dennis Rodman, former NBA player:"People need to understand one thing: I'm not just coming over here to meet the leader, the Marshal. I came over here to meet the basketball team, to prepare a great game for the Leader for his birthday. And people need to understand that it's not important for me to meet him every time I come over because he has another, greater job to do for his country. And I respect that. But this trip was basically to come over to train the team so we can have a great, great game."December 20, 20134.

SOUNDBITE (English) Dennis Rodman, former NBA player:"You know, in the history of this country, I don't think anyone's created such a sight before. A country that's been segregated as far as like, people don't want to, you know, get involved with anything with North Korea. And all of a sudden I decide to do something like this and it's more of an entertainment factor. It's not political, it's not trying to be an ambassador or something like that. It's more like for the people of North Korea and hopefully maybe this will actually open the door as far as like, for certain situations, for me and the Marshal to actually talk about. But it's not necessarily political, it's not even nowhere near political. It's all about basketball and entertainment."6. Mid of Rodman talking7.
