The historic summit between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un this past month in Singapore signaled a significant shift toward peace. This stood in stark contrast to the situation in April 2017 when I wondered whether the rapidly deescalating situation would lead to violence. I proposed a path to peace. With former NBA star Dennis Rodman as perhaps the only mutual friend of Trump and Kim, the latter acquaintance made through Basketball Diplomacy, Rodman stood in a unique position to bring the two leaders together. His efforts, in one way or another, made the Singapore summit a reality. Where their predecessors failed, Trump and Kim realized the potential for peace through the portal Rodman opened.
