June 20. 2019 Barclays Center in New York.
2019 NBA Draft. This year’s NBA Draft was special for basketball fan in Japan.
Washington Wizards select ”Rui Hachimura”.
Rui Hachimura who played Gonzaga University has selected by Washington Wizards.
He is the first Japanese who selected in the first round of NBA draft.
He’ll be the third Japanese NBA player. (Former players are Yuta Tabuse and Yuta Watanabe)
Washington Wizards has many all-star players like John Wall and Bradley Beal. Also, Wizards has lots of great player like ”Superman” Dwight Howard, Trevor Ariza Jabari Parker and so on...
I hope Rui grow up more in Washington without injury and, lead Japanese basketball player to the NBA.
Rui, Welcome to the NBA.
