American Knicks fans have faced a dilemma with their beloved French son, Frank Ntilikina: Should he stay in America, where the COVID-19 pandemic rages and the government is incompetent, or should he return to his native France, where the virus is relatively under control?
Frank made the smart decision, it would seem — returning to France to wait to ball with his buddies in an event called the Amiral League, which has been arranged by professional players in Paris.
We last saw Frank play for France in last Summer’s FIBA World Cup, where he started for the bronze medal French team that sent Team USA packing in the quarterfinals. Remember Frank giving Celtics point guard Kemba Walker the business in the fourth quarter? That was fun.
Frank always seems to play better for the national side, who appreciate his skills and don’t jerk him around as much as the Knicks tend to do. Hopefully he has fun balling out with his friends. Just stay healthy!
