The current New Orleans Hornets forward, Aminu needs to be a big-time player for his country.
While he doesn't play a huge role with the Hornets, he will have to in the Olympics. His team needs him to step up and perform at a high level on the international stage.
One of the players to watch for this team isn't even a starter.
Dagunduro is a guard for this team, and he comes off the bench. However, he leads the team with 3.0 assists per game in just 18.6 minutes. He also kicks in 10.2 points, which is third on the team.
This guy is similar to James Harden in the fact that he does his work off the bench and is still a star. He will need to play well and get the ball inside for Nigeria.
A 10-year veteran in the NBA who is currently playing in China, Diogu is the leader of this Nigerian team. He dropped 25 points in their final game, securing the team a trip to London.
Diogu will have to play a big role if the team is going to do anything during the Games. He is a vital part of the team, and will need to prove that he is one of the best in the world if the team can rally behind him.
