“And as a diplomat, he is a great basketball player. And that’s where we’ll leave it," Kerry quipped while in Doha, Qatar, Tuesday.

As previously reported the now retired Chicago Bulls star - who is better known for his gold grillz, rainbow of hair colors, countless tattoos and piercings and crazy antics – described DPRK’s  recently anointed Supreme Leader, Kim Jong Un, as a "friend for life" after the new best buddies bonded court side during an exhibition game of the Harlem Globetrotters , and went partying together till the wee hours in the communist country's capital, Pyongyang.

Rodman called his new pal "an awesome guy," when he returned stateside from the jaunt , which included getting plied with free liquor by the 29-year-old dictator. "Guess what? I love him," he said of the generous host.

"He wants Obama to do one thing: Call him,” Rodman told incredulous This Week host George Stephanopoulos during an insane interview Sunday. “He said, ‘If you can, Dennis – I don’t want to do war. I don’t want to do war.’ He said that to me.”

Not everyone was as excited about the controversial friendship as Dennis however, with the White House denouncing it as a "celebrity sporting event" for a repressive regime, and suggesting that North Korea should instead focus on the well-being of their own people "who have been starved, imprisoned and denied their human rights."

Meanwhile, now having safely returned to American soil, Rodman appears to be back to the old antics that landed him on Celebrity Rehab with Dr Drew and Sober House.
