    In a warm-up match for the men’s basketball team for the Tokyo Olympics in Alaska, USA, following an upset defeat of the US men’s basketball team two days ago, the Nigerian team, the African powerhouse, regained its power and beat the former Olympic champion, the runner-up of the 2019 World Cup, and the current team 94 to 71. The Argentine team, ranked fourth in the world, defeated the world's powerful opponents in two consecutive games, and their performance was impressive. In the upcoming Tokyo Olympics men's basketball match, the Nigerian team has been regarded as a very powerful dark horse team.
    As far as the Nigerian men's basketball team is concerned, compared to the past few years, their overall strength has been significantly improved. In the 15-man roster previously announced by the Nigerian team, there are a total of 8 players who played in the NBA, namely Presius Achuwa, Okpala and Gabe Vincent who played for the Heat. Okoge played for the Timberwolves, Okafor for the Pistons, Meto for the Kings, O'Neill played for the Jazz and Jordan Walla for the Bucks. Although the role of these 8 players in the NBA team is not important, they are not bad in their own strength. In international competitions, they can help the team in all aspects.
