I think Naija will put up a good fight...
Why come NBA players like Emeka Okafor or Igoudala no play for Naija...no be Naija they come from?

Igoudala actually plays for the US!

We have a couple of NBA players (some former)
- Aminu, Al-Farouq
- Diogu, Ike
- Ekene Ibekwe

And being duel citizen does not preclude you for playing for Nigeria. I think Emeka just decide not to....

I don't watch basketball (except when Lin is playing) but I'm willing to watch this one. As long as Naija performs better than they did in the world cup, no Jackie-Chan-Kaita greeting, we dey kampe.

LOL! That would actually make the game watchable! Someone should head butt Lebron as he drives to the basket.... :laugh:

well if Nigeria took care of her athletes, and provided facilites and coaches conducive for training, perhaps they might want to play for her.
i still can't get over the shabby treatment of athletes and the "minister of sports" attitude last olympics.

My dear, for this post, you get a "like" and a "thanks"!

I played basketball in College, for 3 diffrent states and a club team in Nigeria. I have played in NUGA, National Basketball Championship and at a National Sports Festival. In fact I played with the assistant coach, Sani Ahmed, way back when. We never treat our people well!!..

When Akeem was just starting in the NBA he came to Nigeria to help promote basketball back home. Do you know the then Minister of Sports left Akeem sitting in the lounge waiting room for hours until Akeem simply left. Basketball was not important to him (this was pre '92 Dream Team)... Akeem stopped trying to work with the government to help make Nigerian basketball better. He did open a store on Allen Ave in Ikeja that sold his basketball sneakers at a very affordable price. It was his was of giving back...

After that Akeem decide to play for the US.. And no-one should blame him! He played for Nigeria U20 basketball team, with 6 people I knew and played with. He wanted to do more, but our government officials only look out for themselves...
