It is exciting to have a player of Jordan’s caliber sign with our club. Jordan has great experience and having played in the NBA he brings a lot of qualities that our team needs, Jordan brings us a versatile forward that can also play some wing. He puts a lot of pressure on defenses with his aggressive scoring ability.
We also expect Jordan to provide great leadership, he is creative and a very good all-around player that can really shoot the ball with great range and is also very adept at attacking the basket. It was important to me to make sure that we have a player with this quality to help our players in the coming season.
It was very exciting to be able to sign a Jordan player with great abilities. He also has a great career and hopes to bring the necessary elements to the team, including his experience in the NBA, Jordan is a versatile forward player who can also play wing positions. In addition to a wide shooting range, he is also an all-rounder who can attack and be creative and will put a lot of pressure on the opponent DF, Also, this is an important part for me, but because I am a young team, I have high expectations for his leadership as well as his abilities.

I’m excited that Jordan Hamilton, who has a proven track record in the NBA, chose the same lakes as his brother (Gary Hamilton) to start his career in Japan, Personally, hitting Gary players and re-contract in July 2010 LA staple center close to the time that the land registration, that was introduced to Jordan players just graduating from high school at the time remembered fondly, this time of the trailing edge I am deeply moved.
