BUSAN, South Korea — Former NBA star Dennis Rodman departed for North Korea today for an exhibition basketball game marking the birthday of leader Kim Jong-un, hoping that the game would help Pyongyang ‘open the doors a little bit’ to the outside world. 

Leading a team of ex-NBA All Stars for the Wednesday match, which include Kenny Anderson, Cliff Robinson and Vin Baker, the flamboyant Rodman said he would meet with Kim and wants to display a ‘good show’ for the North’s young leader. 

The heavily tattooed Rodman, 52, remains the highest-profile American to meet Kim, who is believed to be around 30, since the leader took power in late 2011 following the death of his father, Kim Jong-il. 

Asked about North Korea’s dismal human rights situation, Rodman replied, ‘That’s not my job. That’s not my job. 

Rodman had met Kim Jong-un during his previous two visits but failed to meet him during his third visit in December.
