Former Seattle Sonic Vin Baker Is On Dennis Rodman's North Korean Basketball Team

Dennis Rodman (who just finished telling CNN above he doesn't give a "rat's ass what the hell you think," among other things) has assembled an all-star NBA team to play an ambassador basketball game in North Korea tomorrow in honor of leader Kim Jong Un's 31st birthday.

Former Seattle Sonic and recently sober Vin Baker is a member of the controversial team that drew criticism for chumming it up with North Korea just weeks after Kim Jong Un executed his uncle by (maybe, but probably not) feeding him to 120 hungry dogs.

Rodman got in trouble for suggesting in the CNN interview above that imprisoned U.S. Citizen Kenneth Bae, sentenced to 15 years in a North Korean labor camp for vague "hostile acts," was indeed at fault, and may have deserved the sentence. Baker mostly sits quietly and looks uncomfortable in the video.

Vin Baker, who became a pitchman for Dunkin' Donuts on the East Coast after leaving the Sonics for the Celtics, is joined on the controversial team by NBA stars Kenny Anderson, Cliff Robinson, Charles D. Smith, Craig Hodges and Doug Christie.
