Basketball Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman jokingly threw his name into the ring for Nobel Peace Prize consideration on Tuesday after the landmark summit between United States President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

When asked by TMZ Sports if Trump should be considered for the Nobel Peace Prize, Rodman said, “If Donald is considered for the Nobel Peace Prize, I should be in there right beside him.”

Rodman notably traveled to North Korea on numerous occasions in recent years to hold basketball exhibitions, and he developed a friendly relationship with Kim during that time.
