News from the world of sports and betting:supabets app download. Golden State Warriors power forward Jonathan Kuminga expressed his desire to be remembered as one of Africa’s greatest basketball players and to make a positive impact on the continent. The 20-year-old is well on his way to achieving his first goal, having won an NBA championship with the Warriors in his rookie season in 2021.
During an interview with Robert Marawa on #MSW, Kuminga revealed that basketball has always been a part of his family. He feels proud to be remembered as a champion and to have won the title at such a young age. Representing his home country of Congo, Kuminga didn’t think this achievement was possible while growing up. He doesn’t feel overwhelmed by the pressure, but instead, he is motivated to work hard and experience the feeling of winning the championship again. Kuminga’s passion for basketball developed from a young age. He played both basketball and soccer but eventually fell in love with basketball. Inspired by Kobe Bryant, Kuminga would watch his highlights at local cafés and had pictures of him all over his house. Kuminga was fortunate enough to meet his idol in high school, but tragically, Bryant passed away a week later.
Currently, Kuminga is in the country as part of the Basketball Without Borders initiative and aims to give back to the community. He is grateful for the opportunity and wants to share his experience and knowledge with the next generation. Kuminga believes that basketball requires dedication and hard work every day, and his goal is to pass on the knowledge he has gained to others.
