A former player of the Nigerian basketball team has achieved a new feat and rewritten history in the NBA.
A former player of the national basketball team, which is referred to as the D’Tigers, has set a new record and redefined history in the NBA. Ime Udoka, who is the coach of the Boston Celtics, became the first Nigerian coach ever to lead a team to the finals of the NBA.
He had been an influential player for D’Tigers, with bronze medals under his belt during the African Championships in 2004 (Algeria) and 2015 (Madagascar).
Under the guidance of the influential coach Ime Udoka, Boston Celtics have been on an impressive run in the NBA. In the first game of the NBA finals, they also came back to defeat the Golden State Warriors in the fourth quarter to take the final score to Golden State Warriors 108 – 120 Boston Celtics.
