来年の夏、現役NBA選手が日本でクリニック?

ソニックス時代の上司からこんなメールがきました。(今はオクラホマでマネージャー)

Hiro--We would love to travel to Japan in the future. My husband runs his own basketball clinics now and does personal basketball training here in Oklahoma City. He knows NBA players who would be willing to travel to Japan with him to do some camps and clinics if we could put a plan together and have sponsorship.


そしてこの後、彼女の旦那さんからこんなメールが来ました。


Hiro, my good friend how are you i see you steal love basketball. I still remember your dreams for basketball coming to Japan we need to talk about a plan to make it happen i know so nba player that would love to come to Japan ........


そして、昨日の真夜中、こんなメールを返しました。


Hi! Fredrick!

Of course! I really love basketball!! To get knowledge and experiences to develop Japanese basketball, I work in my company. Moreover, my all life is for Japanese basketball, which brings me up and gives me happiness inside my community.

I hear that Taishi Ito who played in Montrose Christian School and now is playing the pro-league in Japan is the friend of Kevin Durant.

My company is the most poplar global investment company for the students in Japan, so it is good story that the business man (me, Hiro) who work for the biggest invest company in Japan meets NBA manager took care of me again and support each other for giving dream to children, incapable or economically-challenged people over the border.

Anyway, there may be good stories to invite Oklahoma city players in Japan and I'm really confident to get good sponsors as long as there is deep philosophy and plan is well prepared.

If you guys come to Japan, it doesn't have to limit to basketball field. Wy might be able to try inspirational speech going around school. I think this might have bigger social impact for Japan.



Thanks,

Hiro



今、返信待ちです。ちょっと自分の職業のアピールの部分がヤラしい部分がありますが、そこは勘弁して下さい。


クリニック、来年の夏あたり、できる、気がしませんか?いける、気がしませんか?


現役NBA選手が日本でクリニック、もしできるとしたら。どうやったら社会的インパクトの高い企画にできるかTwitterでみんなで考えたいと思います。このブログへのコメントでもいいです。意見をください。もしできなかったとしても、この議論が未来の宝になるはず。
