Hamidou Diallo’s Personal Connection to Egypt

USA Basketball

Team USA has been playing hard, but they still got a chance to see some Egyptian sights before the tournament began. By now you should have seen the posts of Coach Calipari and Team USA on their camels in Egypt. Cameron Reddish informed us that there was no actual riding and that they, “Kind of just got on and got off quickly because we were nervous about it.”

Hamidou Diallo said for him seeing the sights was especially cool for him on a personal level.

“It’s been real cool, I mean we went to see the pyramids and that was a great experience I mean just seeing the culture and things like that.  I’m Muslim so I know the culture, so for the guys to see the culture it’s been real cool.”

Diallo said if he had more time he would explore the Muslim culture of the country more, “I would really love to go see that and to be apart of that if I could but right now I just can’t.”

    Incoming ignorant comments because y’all just found out he’s a Muslim.

    Friend: “Why do people think Kentucky is backwards and full of ignorant people?”

    Me: *pulls out phone and pulls up this article and the comments*

    Dang, ignorant people (person) in this thread. I hope Hami is enjoying his trip. It’s good for these kids to travel a bit and get some culture.

    You took 14 comments to just further prove that you’re 71 years old and haven’t left your zip code in 64 years

    I can’t wait for this guy to comment all season long when Hami doesn’t address any Muslim killing in an after game interview. This is going to be more entertaining than the games

    Braking news: Hami Diallo doesn’t talk about recent Muslim murder, random man in Kentucky yells at his phone and proclaims “I HAVE TWO DEGREES THO”

    I said slow clap to you about having two degrees not genocide. More assumptions

    If cnn is such “fake news” why did you reference it twice?

    I know what reality exists. Not once did I say I supported any type of murders. What I’ve said is that just because someone is Muslim doesn’t mean they are a bad person. Just because Hami didn’t mention it doesn’t mean he doesn’t care or supports it. Not once have I tried to sound more educated than you, not once have I said anything bad about a religion, sexual preference, or situation. You’ve managed to do all of that. You’ve also managed to call me about 17 different names after you said you weren’t a name caller. You’ve made numerous assumptions ( I made one) you’ve commented about 35 times and made numerous comments that are not family friendly. You’ve insulted my family. People with you are impossible to talk to because all you can see is someone’s skin color and religion. Not the person. Have a good life man, I hope you find peace at some point.

      This narcissistic asshat has been spewing his drivel here for some time, be it sports or politics. His comments don’t come as a surprise at all.

    When I saw that there were 95 comments on this post my heart dropped. I thought BBN had it’s camo panties in a twist about one of our players being Muslim. Then I came here and saw it’s just that idiot GroundControlToNumber9 and now I feel better.

      It’s camo panties lol. I laughed out loud at that.

    GroundControlToNumber9 is below an idiot whatever that is. Hopefully people realize Kentuckians are not all like him. He is an embarrassment to himself but unable to see it because of his total ignorance. Two degrees does not make you wise, book smart maybe but not wise.

    I am so disappointed in KSR right now. This ass hat, GroundControlToNumber9, should have been blocked HOURS ago. Get this clown out of here, he is not a representative of Christians, republicans, whites, or Kentuckians.

    Shoutout to whoever banned GroundControl. He and his “two degrees” can go be butthurt somewhere else.

      He’s actually a very dangerous human. He’s what’s wrong with this country right now.

    When I read what Mr. Diallo had written, the first thing that came to my mind was ok I bet there is some terrible comments being said about him. I won’t rehash nor do I desire to get into what was said, but I’m glad KSR removed them! To all of you who defended Mr. Diallo, you have my thanks and gratitude.
