Al-Farouq Aminu has shared a cool idea about the upcoming FIBA World Cup. Recently, FIBA and its partner TCL announced that there will be a "TCL Player of The Game" trophy given to the best player of each game during this year's FIBA World Cup. Through the designing process of the trophy, FIBA and TCL want to symbolize and then spread the spirit of basketball and the culture of the hosting country. Now, FIBA and TCL would like to find a more creative name for the trophy in the coming weeks. Asked what he would like to name the trophy, Aminu said that they should name it after him. Aminu told ESPN that he would play for Nigeria's National Team in the FIBA World Cup.
