Phoenix Suns Congolese Bismack Biyombo stood out with an uninspired tweet about the EuroBasket final.
Nicolas Batum, when he was rejoicing at the seventeenth meeting between France and Spain in the EuroBasket final, certainly did not expect such a response. “France-Spain, did we really think it would be a different final?” asked the Blues captain, who was absent from the Euros this year, with a smile.
Bismack Biyombo’s response is not one to smile about. “From my point of view, I can only see the Spain-Africa match” Tweeted the Suns’ Congolese pivot before continuing: “no further comment“. The tweet that prompted his barrage of disapproving comments on the social network, where the message was posted at 1:28 a.m., in relative anonymity until Saturday morning.
The implication clearly attacks the multicultural strength of this French basketball team, which defeated Poland in the semifinals on Friday. The 30-year-old Congolese also seems to have forgotten that Spain, who the Blues face in Sunday night’s final (8:30 p.m.), also includes elements of African descent, starting with naturalized leader Lorenzo Brown, the fine craftsman of La Roja’s journey so far.
