NFL on Yahoo Sports:

Rodman quiet on NKorea plans, but not on Lakers

AP - Sports

TOKYO (AP) -- Dennis Rodman, the ex-NBA star and current buddy of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, isn't saying when his next visit to Pyongyang will be, but he did make a prediction: the Lakers haven't got a chance this season.

Rodman was in Tokyo on Friday to promote a Japanese cable network's coverage of the NBA season. He refused to take any questions about his plans for more visits to North Korea, saying that's a topic for another time.

He did say he was pretty sure of one thing. ''We know that the Miami Heat, that's the best team,'' he said. ''The Lakers, no chance.''

The season opens next week.
