Rodman showed Kim Jong Un some of the finer points of basketball, and the North Korean ruler was so impressed he raided the country's stock of fine food and drink for a party that lasted well into the night. "Guess what, I love him,'' the clearly smitten Rodman said. "The guy's really awesome." (AP Photo/VICE Media, Jason Mojica, File)
