Slow release with a hitch. But size and length not bad. Not even as good as Yi.

Yuta Watanabe continues to shine, playing beter and better as each game went by.

He scored 14 points, hitting 4 out of 6 of his treys, 4 rebounds and 2 block shots in 26 minutes of action.


It's rumored that Brooklyn Nets is contemplating to offer Watannabe a 2-way contract.

Yuta Tabuse was the first Japanese in the NBA. He played when Yao Ming was in the league... at a time when there were enough Asians in the NBA to form a team of 5.

If you count part Filipino, then Jordan Clarkson is it.
As for Vietnamese, there is a HS sophomore who is projected to be a first round draft pick when he declares for the draft.

Zhou Qi recent 17pt 7rbd game was enough to make any pryuen nervous.

ZQ defensive rebound, then brought the ball up the court and then scored easily, posterized Yuta in this process. :lol: :lol:
