I am im­prov­ing as a player -Aminu

Daily Trust - - SPORT - By Mansur Abubakar

Nige­rian NBA star Al Farouq Aminu says he is im­prov­ing as a player at his club, New Or­leans Pel­i­cans.

Aminu who logged just 19 min­utes on Mon­day against the Kings, scor­ing four points on 1-of-1 shoot­ing with two re­bounds and three steals said there’s al­ways room for im­prove­ment in any player and that the qual­ity of the game in Amer­ica is amaz­ing.

“The qual­ity of the game over here is the best in the world and when one plays around the best teams and play­ers, he will surely im­prove as a player and hope­fully I’ll keep im­prov­ing to be one of the best” the power for­ward player said.

The for­mer LA Clip­pers player who was one of Nigeria’s top per­form­ers at last year’s Afrobas­ket Tour­na­ment with 11.9 points, 5.7 re­bounds and 5.3 as­sists per game isn’t get­ting enough play­ing time this sea­son due to the pres­ence of Tyreke Evans who joined the Pel­i­cans from the Sacra­mento Kings.
