Life As Hanamichi Sakuragi

  • By on July 12, 2009 | 10 Comments

    Do you know who is Hanamichi Sakuragi? He is one of the main character in Slam Dunk and catch the eyes of all comic fans around the world πŸ˜€

    Slam Dunk was very popular and I read the comic starting in Form 1 where the othersΒ  still reading Dragonball Z monkey-shy

    I love the character spirit of Hanamichi Sakuragi especially in snatching the rebound in the basketball πŸ˜€

    His character has huge impact on me where I believe we need to learn everything starting from basic monkey-fly-kick

    There’s no shortcut in learning things, “Just Do It” was the word that moves me whenever I dribble, pass, shoot and rebound πŸ™‚


    I have the very best game of my life back to my University time in Sabah at year 2001.

    You might wonder why 4 fellas in a team?

    We play on 3 on 3 tournament so we have 3 player and 1 substitute in rotation πŸ™‚

    If you ask me what happen in the end of the final game, I still remember the action as I remember the story of Hanamichi Sakuragi in the comic monkey-yes

    I was the Power Forward like Hanamichi Sakuragi at that time and one of my job was to snatch the rebound.

    We were down with 3 points in that game versus senior team and time is running out, do something Sakuragi…

    My opponent guard was quite big in size and experience senior in the University, but I give no damn about it when taking the rebound monkey-tarzan

    I passed to one of my team mate standing behind the 3 point line, and he take the shot~~~SWISH

    Yessss…the crowd cheers for the draw in last second and the senior team couldn’t believe itmonkey-silent-1

    ums 2

    But just like what is the end of the Slam Dunk comic, we lost by point lead in the Over Time monkey-cough

    Though our team ends the tournament as the runner up, but we just feel very happy in the end of the day monkey-happy

    ums 3

    I love this shot, feels very happy when look back at this picture each time.

    Everyone just play great, good game good game πŸ˜€

    When I look back at these pictures, feel funny to see my hair style was kinda look like Hanamichi Sakuragi.

    And my body size back then was half of my current body size monkey-sigh

    Guess I need to burn and sweat again πŸ™‚


    I love and still love the spirit of the game – Ah Hong with life as Hanamichi Sakuragi 2009 πŸ™‚

    @Jonathan It will be an honour to play a match with the junior. But I wonder if I still can push my body with tummy to the air for rebound. LOL.
