Lausanne, Switzerland – In a shocking move, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) has granted North Korea permission to compete in the 2016 Summer Olympics Men’s Basketball Tournament in Rio de Janeiro next week. The team will be managed and coached by Kim Jong Un and he will also be the teams starting point guard. The rest of the roster is filled out by Dennis Rodman and ten of the tallest North Korean slaves Kim Jong Un could find.
Kim Jong Un has also changed his infamous hairstyle for the tournament to Dennis Rodman’s colorful rainbow afro, as did all of the other members of the team. Kim Jong Un has named it the new national hairstyle of his country and has stated that anyone in the country who does not change their hair to this style by the start of the tournament, will be arrested.
When asked by reporters why he is allowing North Korea to participate, IOC President Thomas Bach stated, “I think it will be pretty funny.” Kim Jong Un also has stated that all members of the team other than Rodman and him will be executed if they do not win the gold medal. If that doesn’t give them extra incentive to play well, I don’t know what will.
