Dennis Rodman names NBA team to play in North Korea

DENNIS Rodman has named his team of former NBA players to take on the North Korean national team in an exhibition game in Pyongyang on Wednesday.

The NBA line-up includes former All-stars Kenny Anderson, Cliff Robinson, and Vin Baker.

The game will be played on the birthday of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, who Rodman has labelled a "friend for life".

Rodman has been criticised for not talking about North Korea's appalling human rights record.
