DENNIS RODMAN doesn't like to sit still. The U.S. ambassador to the world - who visited with North Korea's supreme leader Kim Jong Un last month - is off to Rome, where he hopes to get an audience with the new pope. Of course, the cardinals haven't actually elected a new pontiff, but why let details get in the way of a good story. Rodman told TMZ on Tuesday that his "people" are trying to arrange a get-together with whoever succeeds Pope Benedict XVI. "I want to be anywhere in the world that I'm needed," Rodman told TMZ. " . . . I want to spread a message of peace and love throughout the world.

Chicago Bulls forward Dennis Rodman said yesterday he is not sure he wants to continue his career and is considering retiring. Rodman had imposed a deadline of today for the Bulls to re-sign him. But now Rodman says that he and general manager Jerry Krause reached agreement on a one-year deal, but that he's not sure he wants to play.

Even with the Rev. Jesse Jackson's support, Dennis Rodman might not have a prayer of being reinstated immediately after the All-Star break. According to league sources, Rodman still has not begun league-mandated counseling sessions that will determine whether he will be reinstated when the Bulls resume play after the break, Feb. 11 against Charlotte. Rodman has missed the last six games after being suspended for kicking cameraman Eugene Amos two weeks ago. He has agreed to pay Amos $200,000 to avoid having the incident go to court.

GET READY for another reality TV show featuring Dennis Rodman. The former NBA star checked himself into an alcohol rehabilitation center somewhere in New Jersey last week after returning from a visit with his good friend Kim Jong Un, the supreme leader of North Korea. Rodman's agent Darren Prince released a statement yesterday that read, "Dennis Rodman came back from North Korea in pretty rough shape emotionally. The pressure that was put on him to be a combination 'super human' political figure and 'fixer' got the better of him. He is embarrassed, saddened and remorseful for the anger and hurt his words have caused.

NOT SURE IF you've been keeping up with the NBA lately (don't blame you if you haven't), but the league is in lockout mode. Seems the owners, once again, need help from their players to stop them from spending their money unwisely. It's a crazy situation. Where is a voice of reason when you need it? Wait, here it comes - the reasonable voice of . . . Dennis Rodman. Yes, that same Dennis Rodman with the dyed hair, multiple piercings and emotional instability. Rodman blames the owners for the lockout, but said the players should ease their demands to help end the dispute that has already cost the league the first 2 weeks of the season.

Larry Bird had the kind of game Saturday that spurs talk that he might be the best forward ever to play in the NBA. Bird scored 37 points in 48 minutes as the gritty Boston Celtics advanced to the championship series against Los Angeles with a 117-114 victory over Detroit in steamy Boston Garden. Not everyone appreciated Bird's performance, however. "He's not God," Pistons rookie forward Dennis Rodman said. "He's not the best player in the NBA. Not to me. I think he's way overrated in a lot of areas.

LAST WEEK, the United Nations issued a report chronicling North Korea's massive human-rights violations under the rule of Kim Jong-un. It is estimated that there are up to 200,000 political prisoners. The report alleged that many have been executed, tortured and starved. Former NBA star Dennis Rodman has visited North Korea and its idiot leader many times, which has inspired a 20th Century Fox film to be titled "Diplomats. " And get this: It's going to be a comedy. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the film will be directed by Tim Story, whose past projects include "Ride Along," "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer" and "Barbershop.

CONTINUING debate about whether Sixers president/general manager Sam Hinkie made the right decision to nuke the team's core and start building from scratch is a moot exercise. The only question now is how patient a notoriously impatient fan base is going to be, waiting to see if the fruits of Hinkie's labors will result in that oh-so-elusive NBA championship. I think the acceptable standard in rebuilding is that it is a four- to five-season process. The trickier issue is determining what is acceptable after that time.

ANYONE IN THIS world who takes Dennis Rodman seriously must either be an idiot or the dictator of a backward Third World country. Somehow, Rodman has befriended North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and has visited the country a couple of times on supposed goodwill missions. His latest included Rodman and some basketball buddies playing a few games for the leader on his birthday. Rodman even sang "Happy Birthday" to the little fella. But Rodman, as he is wont to do, opened his mouth and showed his ignorance, kinda how, in 1997, he said he couldn't stand Mormons and later apologized because he didn't know Mormons were members of the Church of Latter Day Saints.

THE U.S. AMBASSADOR to North Korea is at it again. Dennis Rodman is in Pyongyang, with a team of over-the-hill ex-NBAers, to put on a basketball exhibition today to celebrate the 30th birthday of North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un. Rodman, who has been accused of being blinded by his friendship to the diminutive dictator - whom he has visited many times - got angry in an interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo yesterday. Asked if he had ever asked Kim about releasing U.S. citizen Kenneth Bae from prison, the two-time All-Star lost his cool.
