I am not judging here, I am genuinely curious how is that possible. I mean usually teams have 0, 1 or 2 foreign born players of their descent. And Nigeria has at least 9 foreign born players. This is beyond comprehension when compared to other national teams. maybe conclusion - they do not have any basketball in Nigeria?
Take even another strong african team in comparison:
Angola: 12 born in Angola, 0 board abroad.
Nigeria: 3 born in Nigeria, 9 boarn abroad.
Very very very strange thing.
Another problem is pretty obvious: Nigeria-based players dont get visa...four Nigeria-based players were supposed to be part of the training-camp roster for Venezuela. But they had stops in the U.S. and Brazil. Bet they werent allowed to enter.
Dude regardless of if they were born in America or not, they are NIGERIANS, they were raised the Nigerian way, all Nigerians can testify to this, I was born and raised in London, but I am Nigerian to the bone. You can never understand this....
Ps Hakeem Olajuwon who was born and raised in Nigeria represent TEAM USA !!!!
