Is North Korea’s Heir A Bulls Fan?

(CBS) North Korean leader Kim Jong Il died over the weekend and it’s possible the country’s heir apparent is a Bulls fan.

Deadspin found a Washington Post story from 2009 that profiles Kim Jong Un, the former leader’s youngest son. In the story, a young 1998 version of Kim Jong Un is described as a big basketball fan who “spent hours doing meticulous pencil drawings of Chicago Bulls superstar Michael Jordan.”

The story goes on to say:

“He proudly showed off photographs of himself standing with Toni Kukoc of the Chicago Bulls and Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers. It is unclear where the pictures were taken. On at least one occasion, a car from the North Korean Embassy drove Pak Un to Paris to watch an NBA exhibition game”

    Next time he attends a basketball game, one of the ex-con fans or players should shiv the idiot.

    Are the Jong-Il’s monitoring our responses like they do back home? Where are my responses/comments?!?!?!

    May this @-whipe die soon and brutally at the hands of his own people and join his @-whipe father and grandfather in the depths of hell!

    I wish I had five minutes with him alone in a room. Death to all tyrants! Death to Kim Jong Underware!
