National basketball coach, Chris Oko has stated that having more of the foreign lads for the men’s national basketball team won’t pose any threat of title defense in the upcoming Afro basket championship.
In a chat with brila.net, Oko stated that the majority of these NBA players are familiar with the African terrain. The coming championship will be the third for Players like Al Farouk Aminu and others.
“These guys already understand the terrain as well, some of them are playing in their second, third and even fourth Afro Basketball”
“So, I don’t think it’s going to affect them because they are already used to it, it’s not like this is their first time a lot of them are going for their second and third Afro basket,” He concluded.
