    I mean, "Greek Freak" rhymes and just rolls off the tongue.

    Greece didn’t even give him citizenship during his entire childhood. Bro owes Greece nothing

    I think he’s just saying he’s Nigerian and he wants the acknowledgment

    Could steal Usman's "Nigerian Nightmare." I don't think he needs it anymore...

    That was so disrespectful but grateful how humble he was and still honored the name

    The nickname makes sense because it is extremely rare for a player of his size to have the speed and ball handling ability that he has.

    His own country nicknamed him that. He's had that nickname before the NBA.

    Perfect biblical example of a gentile. He follows customs and laws of the Greeks and was living there in the land but genetically he’s an Israelite.

    People don’t even know his family escaped Nigeria for a better life and to peruse citizenship in Greece so no he’s not the Nigeria Greek he’s the greek freak

    It wasn't meant to be racist, or anything racial, I thought of it as a name meant for him

    The Nigerian Knight would’ve been catchy and somewhat original but I guess it’s better than Luca’s nickname Baby Bird.

    It's a nickname, not a scientific racist nation-belonging contest.

    O please Greek is one of the most racist countries out there! They only allowed him n his family to be in Greek because he is amazing in basketball.
