Still, it might be the jersey Batum puts on for a 9 a.m. (EST) exhibition slate on August 1, 2015 at Ellis Park Arena in Johannesburg, South Africa that will cause him to take pause. That’s because Batum will be taking the court for Team Africa against Chris Paul’s Team World squad in the first NBA game to ever take place in Africa. The matchup will air live on ESPN. “This is huge for us and huge for me,” Batum stated about the importance of an NBA game being played in Africa. “I grew up in France, played for the French team and am French, but my dad is from Cameroon. I’ve got roots in Cameroon and family in Cameroon, so for the first time in my life I’ll be able to experience the pride of playing in a jersey with Cameroon on it. My family and I are proud about that. It’s a special thing for me.”
