SUGA is a longtime basketball fan and SUGA himself has had time to play basketball since he was a child. He even helped his school become famous because of the basketball title he achieved. Also after becoming an idol, he also won a medal in this sport.
Recently, after finishing his activities in the United States, SUGA enjoyed his personal schedule here. SUGA started by going to see a basketball game in the framework of the NBA, which was the game between the two teams LA Clippers and Piston.
In the recently posted VOGUE interview, SUGA also expressed his love of basketball when it came to his favorite player Damian Lillard from the Portland Trail Blazers. He also expressed that: “I prefer the underdogs to the big teams”. SUGA also revealed with a bright smile how much he loves NBA season games lately: “It’s NBA season, This is what I live for these days”.
After the interview was posted, SUGA’s favorite basketball player sent SUGA a video message sharing his feelings after reading SUGA’s words. He expressed: “What’s up SUGA? It’s Dame Lillard. I had a chance to see your article, somebody sent it to me. I appreciate your words. I don’t take it lightly to be somebody’s favorite player but when they are a fan of our team and something that I care so much about you know that means so something to me. So I appreciate your words, I appreciate you being a fan of mine and showing me love.”
He even mentioned that: “You know, part of being underdog is, you know, to know that, a lot of people don’t share the way you think. So the fact that you appreciate my underdogs status and how I go about my business and you know, the things that I want to accomplish. It means a lot to me, especially you being so far away…”
He also thanked SUGA for his love for him and the team, and expressed his wish to meet SUGA soon: “So thank you, much love to you. I look forward to meeting you. PEACE”
