(NEWSER) – Dennis Rodman is back in Pyongyang, but the family of imprisoned American Kenneth Bae shouldn't get their hopes up: The former NBA star says the five-day visit is about basketball and hanging out with his "awesome" buddy Kim Jong Un, not diplomacy. "I'm not going to North Korea to discuss freeing Kenneth Bae," Rodman told Reuters before boarding a flight in Beijing. "I'm just trying to go over there to meet my friend Kim, the Marshal. Try to start a basketball league over there, something like that." Rodman watched a basketball game with the North Korean leader during his first visit to the country earlier this year and the pair were seen laughing and joking.
