The legendary Indonesian point guard, who has been with the league since its inception in 2009, commended the ASEAN basketball league’s growth since its first season.
“I was there when they [ABL] first opened up. It’s just the growth, the talent level, the structure is just amazing. I think sky is the limit for the ABL as they continue to grow,” he said.
The 40-year-old guard said that it is important for younger ABL players to maintain a high standard on and off the court.
Wuysang did not forget his roots and thanked his ABL and Indonesian fans who supported him throughout his career.
“I hope that I can [continue] to inspire the basketball community in Indonesia and the whole country in general,” He mentioned.
The 2019-2020 ABL Season Launch gave the ABL All-Time Ten honoree an opportunity to reconnect with his friends, including fellow All-Time Ten honoree, Jerick Canada, whom he played with on the Warriors team that won an ABL title back in 2012. Wuysang mentioned that moment as his most favorite memory in his playing years.
“[Winning] the 2012 championship with the Indonesia Warriors, these guys– that’s definitely amazing,” Wuysang said.
Even after his time on the court, Mario Wuysang assures the Indonesian community that he always tries to represent them to the best of his abilities. Father time has seemingly caught up to the speedy point guard as he’s currently enjoying the fruits of his labor with his family.
Wuysang was also awarded the 2011 MVP trophy alongside joining a select company of players who have reached 1000+ points for their career.
