Former Senate President Dr. Bukola Saraki on Tuesday night in the arena to watch NBA star, LeBron James play for Los Angeles Lakers.
The former lawmaker shared pictures of his time at the Arena on Twitter on Wednesday morning.
In his tweet, Saraki said he hoped that NBA games would be played in Nigeria in the near future as was done in South Africa in 2018.
“In LA watching @KingJames play for @Lakers Energy in the Arena is unmatched. In 2018 an exhibition NBA game was played in Pretoria, SA. I’m hoping in the near future, Nigeria will host NBA games in a bid to grow the sport further in Nigeria. I am determined to see us achieve this,” he said.
James became the first player in league history to record a triple-double against all 30 teams after he posted a triple-double in the team’s 112-107 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder Tuesday night
