Liz Cambage is in a ton of trouble over her concerning behavior.
The Sunday Telegraph exclusively reported Cambage called Nigerian players “monkeys” and elbowed a rival in the head during a scrimmage leading up to the Tokyo Games before she pulled out of the Opals’ campaign citing mental health reasons.
The Los Angeles Sparks star allegedly started a brawl after elbowing an opponent in the face and slapping another, per reports.
Opals captain Jenna O’Hea confirmed earlier this month that Cambage told Nigerian players to “go back to your third world country” which prompted the 30-year-old to post a cryptic tweet that read: “The truth will always come to light, and it ain’t even dawn yet.”
According to the Daily Telegraph, Cambage used the slur after a Nigerian player king-hit her in the head as retaliation for a physical incident.
“She did say, “Control your monkeys” or something like that,” one player said.
“The stuff she was saying was ridiculous. It was uncalled for, it was dirty, and it was just a bad situation.”
What makes all this confusing is that Cambage’s father is reportedly from the African nation.
In nine games played this year, Cambage is putting up 15.7 points per game and 6.2 rebs.
