Aidin Nikkhah Bahrami, a member of the Iranian national basketball team and Saba Battery club dies in a car accident in northern Iran.
He was one of the best players of Iran national basketball team in FIBA Asia Championship 2007 in Japan. He was one of key elements of Iran's championship.
He played his last match against Qazvin's Pardis club hours before his demise.
Nikkhah will be laid to rest in Tehran on Dec. 29th 2007.
I was shocked when I heard it... I can not believe ... he was a great player ... I can not believe we can not see Aidin anymore

Rest in peace.
I heard that in Iran such road accidents happen really often and the drivers drive like WRC champions.
May God Bless his soul ! R.I.P

Proud to be Lebanese
This is sad Iran finally wins asia after 30 yrs of not even making it to the semis and this happens to the team ....more importantly i think this player is only around 22 or 23 so hes just a kid and had so much more to live for including the olympics next year .......
Big tragedy for Iranian basketball: Aidin Bahrami dies in a car crash
Aidin Nik-Khah Bahrami, one of the most prominent players of Iranian national basketball team, and his fiance died in a car accident in Chalous, north of Iran.
Saba Battery's player, 26, played his last game with the team against Pardis, a few hours before he said goodbye to his team-mates and drove away to the north last night.
Both Aidin and his brother Samad, were members of Iranian national team for a long time, and played crucial role in Iran's qualification for the 2008 Olympic Games, a dream which came true after half a century and Iran took the championship in the whole big continent of Asia.
The incident is a big loss for the whole Iranian basketball community and a big tragedy for his family, specially for the nice father who was always among the fans in stadium, whenever any of his two sons had a game.
You will be truly missed Aidin. God bless you and rest in eternal peace.
