At All-Star Game, Africa’s potential will be showcased

With Milwaukee’s Giannis Antetokounmpo, Philadelphia’s Joel Embiid and Toronto’s Pascal Siakam already among the NBA’s brightest stars and set to be teammates at this weekend’s All-Star Game, the argument could be made that Africa is no longer deserving of the “developing” label.
