I heard it way way before the News Stations did but niliogopa kupost hapa jana since ningeambiwa nilikuwa napost Hekaya za Abunuwasi bila Proof..lol. Anyway a Kenyan is about to Play for the NBA's Eastern Conference Philadelphia 76ers . I hope he doesn't go the way of Tanzania's Hasheem Thabeet but I wish him nothing but the best. Nitangoja NBA Season October nione vile jamaa wetu anacheza league. Did you notice he finished Form 4 Last Year at 22 which means he was 18 while in Form 1. Wah! Okay....Link hapo chini

Hehe Last time I heard the guy went to D league i.e NBA Development League and if I remember well he was Drafted in the 1st Draft. Alichujwa NBA for underperforming but I heard he was a beast at University Of Connecticut. I wish him nothing but the best....

True if this guy wants to dominate he should ask Nigerian legend Hakeem Olajuwon to teach him the Dream Shaker and tricks. Hakeem Olajuwon was trained by the Great Patrick Ewing when he hustled him for moves back at University of Houston and look, he WON the NBA Title in 94 and 95 when Jordan wasn't there and was playing Baseball. Jordan was so pissed when he returned to the league that he WON the Title 3 times 96-98. Good Ol' Days. Moral of the Story to be Great you have to learn from the Greats.

NBA is useless under the current leadership. Talent is concentrated in 2-3 teams so jamaa kama huyu has terrible odds from the beginning. The current commisioner is more worried about how the sport is perceived (remember story za mpaka players wakue dressed up if not scheduled) rather than the entertainment value of the game. Reminds me of a track which said the 'best ballers r not in the league' or something like that.

Wonderful...actually very motivating. This drums up memories of a t-shirt I had in high-school bearing the words "if you have to fade away not on Dikembe's face". When I finished campus I met a friend from Kinshasa, Zaire (he didn't like calling it Congo) who played in the same team with Dikembe back in Zaire long before he went to the NBA. I remember he was overwhelmed by my questions on Dikembe on the first day we met. I'll definitely follow up on this guys career.

You sound like you are Bball player like i used to.I really dont think this dude is going far.I have seen great talent while i was playing in the kenyan league and even before while we were still as school.If the guys i know me included never had those opportunities what makes him so special.Further more he daent have the height. .The best he can try is Euro league.
Too bad these days i play for leisure.

Yes I am but I haven't touched a ball for a year and a half. There are no basketball courts near where I stay. Yeah, his height 6,7" limits him from playing some positions like the power forward and the center. He is just okay for the shooting guard, small forward and the point guard positions. Problem with these positions is you need to have raw talent to excel. I don't think for all his talent he can ever be a point guard for the 76ers because that position really needs a very unique talent. But I really hope he proves me wrong and makes it.
