“It means a lot to me,” Watanabe said. “Just flying from Japan, that’s a long flight. And they’re getting older, I know it’s tough, but still came to see me play. I’m just seeing them smiling and being happy, that makes me really happy. So, I just want to make them proud by me playing good games.”

Watanabe has been playing pretty well on the court in front of them for the 2-1 Suns. Last game against the Jazz, he had seven points, four rebounds and two steals to help the Suns pull off a 126-104 victory.

Tomorrow, the Phoenix Suns will take on rookie sensation Victor Wembanyama and the San Antonio Spurs at Footprint Center.
