Dennis Rodman Plans Return to North Korea, Broker Peace Deal With U.S.

by at .  Updated at .

Eccentric NBA legend Dennis Rodman is already planning his next trip to North Korea, according to reports, with his sights set on much more than basketball.

The star wants to broker a peace deal between the United States and the (erroneously named) Democratic People's Republic of Korea. Seriously.

Rodman's rep says that despite a storied career - Basketball Hall of Fame, five titles, records, awards - a U.S./N.K. peace deal would be his "greatest achievement."

Whoa whoa. Slow down. Guy is the career rebounds per game leader in the NBA since 1973. He once averaged 18 per game in a season! Insane.

In all seriousness, Rodman wants to use his friendship with Kim Jong-Un to forge peace, convincing the dictator to engage in talks with President Barack Obama.

Rodman already said in his yeah-this-happened appearance on ABC's This Week Sunday that Kim doesn't want war, but wants Obama to call him.

Now the Worm wants to do his part to bring the two together.

He plans to return to North Korea within six months to host another kids basketball clinic, and when he does, he will go in with a different mentality.

Specifically, Rodman will not be calling Kim's forefathers, Kim Jong-Il and Kim Il-Sung, "great leaders" this time. He feels bad about ever saying that.

Rodman regrets complimenting the former dictators without understanding the extent of their human rights violations and is sorry he offended Americans.

The baller's looking to make it right and use his bizarre connection with Kim Jong-Un to promote the greater good and lasting peace between nations.

Dennis Rodman. Diplomat.
