Former NBA star Dennis Rodman, the Harlem Globetrotters and a film crew from the Vice media company are visiting North Korea. Arriving in Pyongyang, the American athlete and showman known as "The Worm" is acting like an unlikely ambassador for "sports diplomacy" at a time of heightened tensions between the U.S. and North Korea. Will he ease the tensions between the two countries? Maybe: leader Kim Jong Un is said to have been a fan of the Chicago Bulls in the 1990s, when Rodman won three championships with the club. Watch the images and video below. Is it OK for Rodman to visit North Korea?
