The Phoenix Suns have three stars in Devin Booker, Kevin Durant and Bradley Beal, but Yuta Watanabe might rival them all in terms of how much fan love he gets.

Not only does he have the city of Phoenix behind him already, he also has the whole country of Japan to support him.

“I cannot wait to play a regular season game in front of the amazing fans,” he said today.

On the court, Watanabe has shown off his impressive shooting form, as well as stellar defense in all three of the team’s preseason games.

Watanabe has gotten a lot of opportunities early on for the Suns and made the most of them. Last game against Portland, Watanabe had 10 points on 4-of-6 shooting.

Tomorrow night, fans can see Watanabe one more time before the season starts, as the Suns play in their last preseason home game against Portland once again.
