Nigeria Rumors

Oladipo is very proud of his Nigerian heritage and he said that his mother is very aware that her son could play for her native country. Nigeria, the 2015 Africas champion, still must qualify for the Olympics next summer. “My mom obviously knows because she pays attention to stuff like that, but she’s never mentioned anything to me about it,’’ Oladipo said with a chuckle. “I just go out there and play basketball. Whatever decision comes, I’ll make that decision when I need to.’’

What’s on your travel bucket list? Andre Iguodala: I don’t have a buck list, really, but I really want to get back to Africa. I plan on next year or sometime in the next two years, at the most, on getting back to Africa. A good friend of mine was just there and had the experience of a lifetime, so I plan on getting back really soon. I’ve got to go to Nigeria, because that’s where my fathers from. I’d like to start there and go to a few other places.
