Nigerian-American Suleiman Braimoh is living proof that sometimes you don’t know what you have until it’s gone. Waived by Japan’s Nigita Albirex in late February, the 24-year-old returned home to Houston, Texas, with an uncertain future. Eight weeks and close to eight thousand miles later, the 6’8 forward is New Zealand’s top performer, torching rival defenders and turning some heads in the process. An absolute force to reckoned with, Braimoh has dropped back-to-back thirty point games, finding his stride and leading seventh ranked Taranaki MA to another decisive victory. Adding 30 points and 21 rebounds in round 5, followed by Saturday’s 35 point and 15 rebound round 6 thrashing, Braimoh was awarded the leagues top honors for the second straight week. Improving literally ever time he steps on the floor, exciting teammates, followers, and fans world-wide, it appears thousands are waiting anxiously to see what “Magnificent Su” will do next. Back in action Saturday night, stay tuned!
