Mbah a Moute said he would like to see the NBA increase its efforts to recruit in Africa. “The rate at which it’s going, I don’t like,” he said. “I would like to see it bigger and faster. But [basketball] is growing. The NBA is doing a good job of trying to get in the continent. There’s more African players or African-descent players coming into the NBA, so that’s been good as far as helping. But I think we need more guys going in there and trying to do stuff to help. We do our best and there’s a lot of other guys in the NBA who have some African blood that are trying to do stuff. The more we do that, things are going to continue to get better.” Boston Globe
