''I saw the wave that was coming, but I was just happy the rest of the world got to see it,'' said the 37-year-old Diogu, the captain of Nigerian national team. The NBA hailed last week's draft as ''historic'' because for the first time two players from Nigeria were first-rounders, and another six who have at least one Nigerian parent were also picked.
