It's not sport, it's theater

"Looks like the DPRK team beat Dennis Rodman's ex-NBA team."

When the Globetrotters played against my high school's coaches (late 1960s), the Globetrotters won by just one basket, IIRC

And by played against, I of course mean permitted the coaches to occasionally get a basket to keep it fun.

At that point, it's not sport, it's theater. Wonder if Rodman's team discussed beforehand by how many points they ought to lose?
