Tonight, however, he hit two 3-pointers and dished out nine assists to go along with 18 points, his most in a single game this season. He also shot 75.0% (6-of-8) from the field.
After all the interviews, Ham Ji-hoon, who attended the official press conference as Soo-hoon, said that he had something discreet to say, “It’s my wife’s birthday.”
When asked if he had ever won on his wife’s birthday, he laughed and said, “I don’t remember,” before adding, “Sometimes there is a match, sometimes there isn’t. (If there is no match, I blow out the candles on the cake, but if there is a match, I don’t see her. I just leave a message saying happy birthday. We don’t give each other gifts on our birthdays or anniversaries.”
He also said, “This is the first time I’ve said this. I’m not far away from retirement, so when I mention it, it becomes a memory,” he said, adding, “I want to tell her that I won because of her, that it’s her birthday, that I’m light, and that I won because my shots went in well.”
Ham married in April 2012. Since their marriage, they have played on November 9 in 2018, 2019, 2021, and 2023. In their four matches, they are currently 2-2 with a win and a loss.
