▽ Team comment
Coming back from an ankle injury sustained last season, he has become an all-around player with a good balance between offense and defense, and has become an indispensable and reliable presence for the Kings. Maki, who has a high basketball IQ, continues to grow as a handler, and we expect him to lead the team even more in the new season.

I’m happy to be able to fight with everyone again next season. I believe the 2023-24 season will be harder to win than ever. I believe that being satisfied with the current situation is also a decline at the same time, so I would like to make this season a season in which we can continue to improve ourselves and improve further as individuals and as a team.
