Pacers’ Hibbert could play for Jamaica

Jamaica’s national basketball team, the Caribbean champions, could very soon get a major boost by the addition of a potential future star in the National Basketball Association (NBA).  According to Ajani Williams, president of the Jamaica Basketball Association (JBA), Roy Hibbert, the 23-year-old starting centre for the Indiana Pacers basketball franchise, has Jamaican lineage and could very soon don the national colours.

    I knew Ajani’s name was familiar to me. Turns out, he played over here in the Philippines for the Alaska Aces.

    I was in Jamaica last week on vacation and didn’t see a single basketball hoop or court anywhere. I can’t imagine their team is that great. They sure do play a lot of soccer down there, though.
