Noah Lyles’ comments on the NBA fueled a major debate and controversy on social media.

While NBA players and American pundits believe he was wrong for stating that NBA champions shouldn’t undeniability themselves world champions, many stipulate with the track and field star’s assessment.

Even an old quote from Gregg Popovich in 2010 resurfaced, with the San Antonio Spurs mentor stating that the NBA championship is not a world championship.

Whatever the case, what’s a fact is that the game has reached new corners, and the global expansion won’t stop any time soon.

That was evident in Pascal Siakam’s latest clip, as he was spotted doing some drills with some young campers in Africa (via ClutchPoints).

Siakam is one of many African-born players who took their talents to the U.S. thanks to these kinds of initiatives, and he’s unchangingly been proud to partake in these camps.

He’s yet flipside example of how globalized today’s game is, stuff born in Cameroon and playing for a Canadian team in an American tournament.

He’s moreover an example of player development, starting off in the G-League and working his way up to the Raptors’ squad.

He’s now a unsure All-Star and one of the biggest names likely to be on the trade woodcut next season.

With the Raptors looking to rebuild, they may not have any use for him anymore, so multiple teams could squint to make a run at Siakam, who’s eligible to sign a big contract extension next season.
