Mario Wuysang isn’t done yet.
The 39-year Indonesian legend has come out of retirement to join new Chinese ball club Zhuhai Wolf Warriors in the ninth season of the ASEAN Basketball League, set to open in November.
The news was first delivered by Justin Taguibao of ASEAN Sports.
“I’m excited because it’s a different environment for me. It’s a good team, I’ve met some of the local guys and I think the potential to be a great team is there. So that’s exciting,” he said.
The 5-foot-9 Indonesian-American, who announced his retirement from the game last August, will be playing as a World Import for the Wolf Warriors.
Wuysang played in the ABL last season for CLS Knights Indonesia. Though his team finished 5-15 and missed the playoffs, he had a good personal run, as he surpassed 1,000 league career points.
Wuysang, considered as Indonesia’s greatest point guard of all time, won a championship in the regional pro league back in 2012 with the Indonesia Warriors by beating the San Miguel Beermen.
He is also a decorated figure in the global stage, as he has six silver medals in the SEABA Championships for Timnas Indonesia. He also has three silvers and a bronze in the SEA Games.
Wuysang and the Wolf Warriors will raise the curtains of the new ABL season on November 16, as they take on Hong Kong Eastern at the Zhuhai Jinan University Gymnasium.
