The 39-year-old was in South Africa as an ambassador for the NBA Africa game that took place at the Ticketpro Dome on Saturday, and he made the trip to check out the Glamour Boys’ facilities alongside Jaylen Brown of the Boston Celtics and the Houston Rockets’ Clint Capela.
Team Africa was narrowly beaten 108-97 by Team World in the event on Saturday, but before the game took place, Henry, Brown and Capela took some time to meet the likes of Kaizer Motaung, Siphiwe Tshabalala and Daniel Cardoso.
Speaking to Chiefs’ official website, the ex-Barcelona man said, “I made my debut for France against South Africa and finished off my international career against the same opponent… I also know the surname Motaung, because there was a player called Sizwe Motaung in the team.
“I am glad to have met ‘Shabba’ because I still remember the goal he scored against Mexico in the 2010 World Cup, and it is cool to see that he wears jersey number 14, which is a special number to me.”
