Brittney Griner and Dennis Rodman

The whole drama around WNBA star Brittney Griner, her arrest, and jail sentence in Russia has been one of the hottest topics of the year in the basketball world, as everybody is trying to figure out a way to bring BG home. Even the NBA legend Dennis Rodman has taken it upon himself to help out.

What more can be done?

Earlier this year, Brittney Griner got arrested in Russia for bringing cartridges with hashish oil into the country. As it was an illegal act, Griner got detained, and she has been locked up ever since. The recent sentence of 9 years only further shocked the basketball community in the States.

Everybody is sharing their support and pleading for her return, but even the involvement of president Joe Biden and negotiations about a prisoner swap was not productive, as Griner is currently serving her time without any clear indication of her maybe being able to go home.

Nobody knows what the next move is, but NBA legend Dennis Rodman has decided to take things into his own hands. Rodman recently shared he will soon go to Russia and try to seek the release of Griner.

"I got permission to go to Russia to help that girl. I'm trying to go this week."

We all know Rodman is a unique and crazy personality, not afraid of doing things nobody else would dare to think of, but this seems a bit too much, even for Dennis. Rodman does have some history when it comes to international ventures, as he actually visited Russia back in 2014, praising President Vladimir Putin at the time. But that was a long time ago, and Russia is now in a state of war.

Rodman did a similar type of thing once upon of time, visiting North Korea and hanging out with the notorious leader Kim-Jong-un when the tensions between the two countries were at an all-time high. Now America and Russia are on really bad terms, and it seems going over there might be a huge risk.

Rodman definitely has good-natured intentions, but a unanimous White House administration official believes Rodman going over there will only further complicate the situation and have a harmful effect, bringing in another big name into the mix.

That could very well be true, but it seems not many options are on the table when it comes to trying to save Griner. Having Rodman going over and doing his magic might be the best solution for now. After all, who is going to stop "The Worm" from doing what he intended?
