KentoKatoCoverAbout: I was born in Japan but grew up in New York a.k.a. the Mecca of Basketball. When I was six years old, I saw Michael Jordan on TV and have been a huge basketball junkie ever since.

Favorite Team: A die-hard Knicks fan since 2001. Have had to struggle through the atrocious years, but happy with the recent improvements. I love Madison Square Garden and the atmosphere of New York basketball.

Favorite Player: Jordan from the past, just because he is the GOAT, but currently, have to say Kobe just because of the pure swagger, mentality, skills, and game that he has.

Favorite NBA Moment: When Kobe got his first ring without Shaq and shut up all the critics.
