Samsung Life suffered a headache from injuries to key players, but finished the regular season in 3rd place, maintaining the top spot. Kiana said, “There were a lot of injured players, but I am proud of my teammates who endured. The goal for the coming season is to become a champion. It is this will (laughs). Everyone is healthy and developed last season, so we can do it,” he said, expressing his desire to win next season.

When asked about the possibility of participating, he said, “I think we will have to wait and see. Connecticut’s decision will be followed. It would be nice if I could play this season, but I’m trying to focus on completing the rehabilitation perfectly without rushing.”
