today, k1x warrior taxi (is that not the coolest nickname since world b free?) was the only japanese player selected into the j-leagues all-first team! in his rookie season no less. yeahhhh boyiii! after leading the league in assists (in k1x’s all new “187”), this is no big surprise, but still a huge honor. congratulations, taxi!

honorable mention – sergey bykov

dynamo moscow and sergey bykov finished 3rd in the uleb cup last weekend! after the crunchtime loss to girona in the semis, sergeys team defeated galatasaray in their last uleb cup game. reigning european champion bykov contributed an a.c. green-solid 7 points and 4 assits in 20 minutes of playing time.
