Mike Tyson Says Rodman Committed 'Treason, 100%'
“[Rodman] lost it. They’ll probably arrest him when he gets back in this country. When you see [former NBA player] Charles Smith, who you know is a decent person. I could not believe that Charles Smith would be involved with that, unless it was something advantageous for him” Tyson said. “But I couldn’t believe, Dennis Rodman, who’s leading the way. Man, it’s such a disappointing factor. It just wasn’t good. And it didn’t help the cause. Look, nobody can stop me from making a fool of myself, but that was some really, some really bad stuff. It wasn’t even funny. It was like, a [fictional] scene. You couldn’t even believe that’s real. If I would have woke up in the middle of that, I would have thought it was a sketch or something. It was really some bad stuff, when you look at it. And he put those other guys in a bad predicament too. They may never get a job to work with, to be involved with the NBA again, for life."
..."It’s treason. It’s treason, 100%. Look, I’m not politically incarnate or anything, but when you examine what treason is, it’s treason,” Tyson said. “He’s in another land, that’s an enemy of our land, and he’s talking [expletive] on us. He’s talking really bad to our guys over there.”
...“And he’s defending [North Korea]. And plus they’ve got one of our guys over there in prison, and he’s defending them, saying ‘do you know what that guy did?’ well you don’t either,” Tyson said. “You become his lackey. He must have paid them with money, I’m sure he’s getting paid. I’m sure Dennis is not doing this out of the kindness of his heart.”
When asked if he might consider visiting North Korea to promote his one-man stage show, which lands in Vegas this month, Tyson replied, “You ain’t gotta worry about that.”
