Portland Trail Blazer Nicolas Batum standing hip to shoulder with his biggest fan.
Nicolas Batum has been with the Blazers NBA Basketball Team since 2008. Born in Lisieux France, he has had an impressive career starting in Le Mans in 2006 before the Portland Trail Blazers acquired him.
You can imagine MeMa's surprise when the French Teacher at Franklin High School mentioned that the Batum assembly would be held in the school library. MeMa rushed out and purchased a new Blazer sports shirt just for the occasion. After Batum was finished speaking the attending students where allowed to ask questions, but only in French.
