Team USA got off to a terrible start in an international friendly. Nigeria delivered one of the big surprises in international basketball history with its stunning win over the United States this weekend and one of their players may have rubbed some salt in the wound afterwards.
Miami Heat great man Precious Pre Achiuwa, the starting center of the Nigerian team, sent Kevin Durant from Team USA to the deck with a large block in the first half of the Olympic exhibition on Saturday.
After his major blockade against Durant, Achiuwa used social media to celebrate Nigeria’s victory and get a shot at the Nets superstar.
Achiuwa’s caption read in part, “You’re not that buddy, trust me, yours [sic] not that guy. “
While Achiuwa is clearly feeling this game was still an exhibition rather than an actual Olympic game. Durant and the rest of Team USA will definitely look forward to a rematch when it comes down to it.
