Congolese Phoenix Suns player Bismack Biyombo stood out with an uninspired tweet about the EuroBasket final.
While rejoicing at the umpteenth reunion between France and Spain in the EuroBasket final, Nicolas Batum certainly did not expect to see such a response. « France-Spain, did we really think it was going to be a different final?“, asked with a smile the captain of the Blues, absent at the Euro this year.
Bismack Biyombo’s response lends itself less to smiling. « From my point of view, I only see a Spain-Africa match“tweeted the Congolese pivot of the Suns, before continuing:”no more comment« . A tweet that sparked his torrent of disapproving comments on the social network, where the message was posted at 1:28 a.m., in relative anonymity until Saturday morning.
Unequivocally, the implication attacks the multicultural strength of this French basketball team, victorious with the manner of Poland on Friday in the semi-finals. The 30-year-old Congolese has apparently also forgotten that Spain, which the Blues will face on Sunday evening in the final (8:30 p.m.), also counts on elements of African origin, starting with the naturalized leader Lorenzo Brown, great artisan of the route of La Roja so far.
