Why the hell do you think? Those Nigerian national team players are DUAL CITIZENS.

Antetokoumpo brothers are war refugees that fled Nigeria to Greece and renounced citizenship.

The guys from USA are simply legal immigrants, with dual citizenship. If you can't see the difference, then you really are an idiot.

So nice to know that in the mind of a RACIST, nationality is determined by one's skin color.

You just like to argue for the sake of it.

Nope. If Antetokpumpo brothers are not Greek, despite being born and raised their whole loves in Greece, then Irving sure the **** is no American.

Let's see here, according to ISH, Antetokoumpo brothers are "Nigerian citizens".

Even though they have no Nigerian citizenship, can't get Nigerian passports, and can't play for Nigeria's national team.

Even though they were born and raised in Greece, lived their whole lives in Greece, speak Greek, play for Greece..

These guys are "Nigerians only" according to ISH.

So then how in the hell can Kyrie Irving be American then? Born in Australia, lived their the first 2 years of his life. He's 10 times more Australian than Antetokoumpo brothers are Nigerian.

In fact, Kyrie Irving is almost as Australian as Mel Gibson is. Never once heard Mel Gibson called "American".

So if Antetokoumpo brothers are not Greek, then Irving sure the **** is no American. Not to mention many other players that played for Team USA.

Seikaly

Kerr

Ewing

Wilkins

Olajuwon

etc.

I mean the USA is REALLY a freaking joke with using foreign players. Not a single player their qualifies as American in any way, if Antetokoumpo brothers are not Greek.

Nope.

Dominique Wilkins was born in France, had French descent parents (people keep saying they were Americans are simply distorting truth - they were French who had US citizenship)............

He played in Europe because he was allowed to because he had a FRENCH passport. He was eligible to play for France's national team if he wanted to, and was asked to.

His family is French and speaks French. He even has a freaking FRENCH name.

But according to this forum, he's 100% "American". Well he's more French than Antetokoumpo brothers are Nigerian. Those brothers just speak Greek and English.

But this forum says Wilkins was pure American and all this other bullshit, but those brothers are "not Greek" and are "pure Nigerian".

You are a bunch of racist xenophobic scum.

Tony Parker was born in BELGIUM. Tony Parker's father is AMERICAN. Tony Parker has US citizenship. Tony Parker can play for Team USA, not even as a "naturalized player", but as a natural one.

Tony Parker can play for Belgium if he wanted to as a natural player.

Never ****ing once have I heard anyone here call Tony Parker "Belgian" or "American".........

I have seen dozens of people here call Hakeem "American", because "he learned to play basketball in USA, he speaks English, played for Team USA, and has US citizenship".

Seen MANY MANY people here claim Hakeem is "American" and not Nigerian, using that "logic".........

But these brothers - no ****ing way can they be considered Greek. Just pure Nigerian, even though they spent their whole lives in Greece and were born there.

Never mind that Hakeem was born in Nigeria and lived their until he was college age. Oh yeah, all minor details in the racist xenophobic world of ISH.

Keep your racist xenophobic double standards bullshit to yourself.

His brother recently gave an interview where he said he and his brothers are GREEK.

Also, they do NOT have a Nigerian citizenship.


So he is actually a Greek of Nigerian descent. Not a Nigerian. They actually cannot even get a Nigerian passport.

So Nigerian parents and lineage, but 100% Greek nationality and culture.

Sir...

.

I bet you 1000 Euros that Dominique Wilkens cannot speak french fluently. I have spoken to him multiple times ( both as a former Hawks employee and as a UGA grad) and a sure that is not true.

He moves a bit like KD...
Unfortunately the competition is too weak to be able to tell anything from the video other than the fact that he's got nice potential. Ball handlers with a 7'3 wingspan don't come along too often.

Besides, their Greek passports are already being processed right now.
