FIBA's ineptitude has been exposed. Hopefully the ridiculous naturalisation leniency for African countries is reversed.

Nigeria look pretty concerning to me. I think they played near their ceiling and USA near their basement but when a team beats USA you have to take them very seriously. Do I think we should beat Nigeria still? yes. But they can definitely beat us as well it seems. Group B just got a whole lot more interesting.

They just naturalised 4 usa women to Nigerian team on 2 weeks notice. This rule will open up the floodgates. It'll be like fifa.

Good to see Chima Moneke playing for Nigeria

Provided I'm thinking of the same player, didn’t he represent ACT at junior nationals, and didn’t he sign originally for SE Melb Phoenix??

And I just read the women have put in paperwork for the Ogwumike (spelling??) sisters

Nneka has won the past 2 World champs with Team USA but was left off the Olympic team and now they are trying to get all 3 for Nigeria

Does make a bit of a mockery if that's the case

The Argentina vs Nigeria game scheduled for a couple days ago was suspended due to two cases of covid on the Nigerian team. Do Nigeria also get covid exemptions?

It seems Nigeria's spray and pray style from 3 hasn’t changed over the years. They shot the ball well, but some worrying signs for Team USA. They may struggle to medal if they repeat that performance against the better teams. At the end of the day, like the WCs, unless Team USA sends its best 12 gold is not a given. Rest-of-the-world is much stronger now.

Haha you have internet to complain on a basketball forum, yet you don't know how to google search 'Nigeria basketball score'.

They'll also have Jordan Nwora once NBA Finals is done. Nwora is about their best perimeter scorer.
