[Comment by Yasushi Nigami]
Thank you to all of you who have enthusiastically responded to Chiba Jets last season!
I am very happy to be able to play at Chiba Jets in the 2022-23 season as well!
I was nervous at first when I stood on the Chiba Jets home court, but thanks to the support of the boosters, I think I was able to score my first goal.
I was really happy to see the towels and T-shirts with my name and number on my new team at the venue, let’s play well for you, contribute to the team and deliver the victory. I was made to feel that!
Next season, I will not forget to thank you all, and I will do my best to practice more and give back to you, so please continue to give me a hot flame!
