Former Captain of the Nigeria’s basketball national team D’Tigers Olumide Oyedeji speaking to news men has praised the appointment of experienced coach Mike Brown for Nigeria’s Men national basketball team;
That’s a good one, I think he’s going to improve our technicalities and I believe he is going to come with his own technical crew that’s going to help him because basketball right now has gone a lot highly technical. You cannot doubt his coaching experience, he has been a champion, winning the NBA coach of the year award in 2007. Kudos to his assistant too Alex Nwora. But the appiontment, should have been made before now and not just few months to the Olympics which will be the immediate task for the coach".
