Tokyo 2020: Brown Vows To Remain D’Tigers Head Coach

Tokyo 2020: Brown Vows To Remain D’Tigers Head Coach 

Mike Brown has vowed to remain as head coach of Nigeria’s men’s basketball team, D’Tigers, after they were eliminated from the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games on Saturday.

Brown and his team were defeated in all group games to Australia, Germany and Italy after impressing in exhibition games against USA and Argentina.


An NBA coach for the Lakers and Cavaliers and currently an assistant with the Golden State Warriors, Brown is credited for helping Nigeria improve and become an international factor over the past few months.

He has now pledged to keep coaching the team despite their performance in Tokyo.

“I coached in Afrobasket (African qualifying tournament) during a pandemic in 2020 in November and had no problems,” Brown told Boston Globe.

“The players involved, as long as they want to keep coming back, I’m going to keep fighting for them. And I’m going to get this programme headed in the right way because this programme can be really good. We hit a few speed bumps during this Olympics and it hurts.”

    If na local coach chop 3 straight defeats now…we for no hear word for here again…you for don Dey hear words like incompetence, quota system, corruption, bribery etc as the reason D’Tigers didn’t win their games.

      Nobody hates the local based coaches Mr. Man, the argument have always been on merit over quota system, even though coach Brown lost all 3 games in the Olympic, everyone including the foreign media acknowledged the vast improvement of our team in Just the short time the coach took over, give or take this team will go places but the local coaches that have been there for donkey years could not win ordinary Afrobasket talk less of qualifying for the Olympics, when we learn to appreciate the truth we will start becoming the true giant of Africa that we claim we are!
