As preparations for the 2013 AfroBasket intensifies and the date draws closer, the demand on the various competing team to come up tops is also increasing by the day. This year's competition to be hosted at the Palais des Sportes in Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire promises to be a very exciting one. African basketball powerhouses such as Angola, Cameroon, Egypt, Senegal, Tunisia and Nigeria will all be present with some of them inviting foreign based players to enhance and increase their teams chances, the biggest star possibly being Cameroonian NBA player, LucRichard Mbah a Moute now with the Sacramento Kings.
Minister Alain Lobognon
Amidst all this, the Ivorian minister for Promotion of Youth, Sports and Recreation, Alain Lobognon has issued a ultimatum to their national team; The Elephants that read:
This message is to the Elephants basketball players currently preparing in Spain. According to information reaching me, the guys are not ready yet (I'm waiting for better news). I do not expect anything other than the win during the Afrobasket2013 that will be played on our land from 20th to 31st August 2013. My message remains... The Cup or the confiscation of passports. So know that you have been warned. Just be sure to win... Good evening!

(NB: Do not say that you will try to win.)''
