Out of 64 tribes of South Sudan, only players from Dinka were drafted by NBA this year. Unti-Dinka went against it and posted several posts on Facebook and Twitter over the drafting of Bol Bol (son of Manut Bol the NBA legend) and Marial Makur Shayok who comes from Dinka.
NBA considers talent and height not the background it is not a political Sports Association. However Dinka are said to be the tallest people in Africa which makes them to qualify for NBA.
Youths should be sound minded people and work towards the development of their country.
Deu Grëngdit Twitted “NBA are tribalist. They drafted only two Dinka again and didn’t give other South Sudanese tribes a chance.
Everywhere in NBA is Dinka. Luol Deng – Dinka, Thon Makeer – Dinka, Dau Dut – Dinka, Abul Gak – Dinka, again Bol Bol and Marial Shayok Dinka. What about the other 64 tribes? UN should take over and remove Dinkas.”
