Dennis Rodman is in the news again because: North Korea.
(We are recycling the below post because it is fascinating...)
Basketball is really popular in North Korea... and they literally play by their own rules...
Here are some actual North Korean Basketball rules:
-Slam Dunks: worth three points instead of two
-Three Pointers: if the shooter makes a Swish shot (nothin' but net) it's a Four Pointer.
-If you miss a Free Throw, points are deducted from your score
-Buzzer-Beaters (shots taken in the last 3 seconds of a game) are worth 8 points!!
