Last month, James White was home in Washington D.C. when the news hit: President Donald Trump issued an executive order temporarily barring immigrants from seven Muslim-concentrated countries from entering the U.S. A day later, Iran, one of the countries included in the order, announced that it would ban U.S. citizens from entering its country. White, a first-year forward with Petrochimi Bandar Imam Harbour – a team in the Iran Super League – on a break from the team and scheduled to fly back the next day, wondered: Would he be able to return? A phone call to a coach eased his concerns. “He told me, ‘What, do you think our government is like the United States?’ and said everything would be OK,” White said in an email to The Vertical. “From the moment Trump was elected, everyone [in Iran] was just saying, ‘He is stupid.’ They only know what they read or see on TV, just like we do their country.”

The American forward will be free agent this summer but he did not rule out a return to Reggio Emilia in an interview with Prima Pagina. “It is too early to talk about the future. The summer is long. I can say that staying in Reggio Emilia is one of my options. My first target is to return to the NBA. I will check all my options. As of now, I want to enjoy my summer and work to be ready for next season” said White. “I enjoyed a lot playing for Reggio Emilia this season” added The Flight.
