Osman is currently in the Turkish capital of Ankara, where he will be suiting up for his home country today in a game against Montenegro. The game is hosted by the International Basketball Federation (FIBA), and is a qualifier for the 2019 FIBA Basketball World Cup.
Osman posted on Instagram yesterday, asking fans of Ankara to show their support for the game. The translated text to Osman’s post is provided below:
“In the world championship group qualifying, tomorrow we are going to an important match in our own home. Come on Ankara, everyone in the hall! Your support is so precious to us.”
Responding to Osman’s post, James wrote, “Good luck brother!”
It has been quite a productive summer for Osman, who was recently seen working out with James, Kevin Durant, and Kawhi Leonard a few weeks ago. The future certainly bodes well for the budding star.
