“As a member of Brex this season, I will be fighting and I feel that it will be a challenging year with the new members.
Please continue to support me in the new season.
The disgraceful coach who created a situation where BREX missed the CS for the first time in the history of the B League last season will be in charge again next season. There are many people who do.
I feel really frustrated that I made the fans feel itchy.
However, it is precisely because of this situation that I want to show that I am trying to break through (BREAK THROUGH). I have a strong desire to crawl up to the position where BREX should be.
I don’t think it’s necessary to explain the power of the players who have newly joined BREX, but there are times when I want to introduce the new coaches one by one, and some of them have great power and fight alongside me. , very reassuring, and I myself am looking forward to starting a new basket.
With the addition of the power of the new members, players and coaches, we would like to express the evolved BREX MENTALITY by fusing the previous BREX players and staff with the best BREX fans in Japan.
It looks like it will be a while before we meet the fans, but please look forward to it.
See You Soon BREX NATION!!」
