Koh Flippin with the Ryukyu Golden Kings

via goldenkings.jp

My Twitter feed exploded with news of Koh Flippin joining the Ryukyu Golden Kings team. The 25 year old 6’2″ Torrance, California native (his mother is from Naha) comes to the Kings from the Chiba Jets and plays guard. I love his tweet announcing his joining the Kings: “Haisai! I’m Koh Flippin. Yutashiku!!”

A comment from Koh on the Kings’s website says “Okinawa is a special place for me that is my roots and and also my identity.”

沖縄は、私のルーツ、アイデンティティーでもある特別な場所です。
