Suga named NBA ambassador

Suga has been a fixture at a number of NBA games this season, starting with reigning champions Golden State Warriors’ preseason matchups against the Washington Wizards in Japan last fall — where Naomi Osaka complimented him on a particular BTS song made — and including the Dallas Mavericks’ visit to Los Angeles in January.

Suga even met Steph Curry, but his association with the association just became official: Overnight, the NBA announced Suga as an NBA ambassador.

“Hi, I’m Suga from BTS,” he says in the video. “I am proud to announce that I have become an NBA Ambassador. It is a great honor for me personally as I have loved basketball since I was young. Stay tuned for more from the NBA! Thank you very much.”

The league’s press release detailed the scope of the new partnership:

“As an NBA ambassador, SUGA will reach out to NBA fans around the world through the conclusion of the 2022-23 NBA season and beyond. SUGA, an avid NBA fan, will participate in several league initiatives featured on the NBA and his personal social media channels, including attending NBA games and events in the US and Asia, and attending the League promotional activities.

Additionally, the NBA will be present during SUGA’s first solo world tour and will collaborate at select concerts to celebrate the release of SUGA’s debut solo album. D day.”

BigHit announced earlier this week D day will be released on April 21st, followed by the single “People Pt.2” feat. IU” this Friday, April 7th.

Suga’s subsequent tour was also revealed. The global run begins April 26-27 with back-to-back shows at Belmont Park, New York before running for three nights at the Kia Forum in Los Angeles in May.

Suga has time to explore personal ventures like the NBA and solo projects as BTS’ hiatus is expected to last until at least 2025. The historic K-pop group announced their hiatus last October, citing “plans to fulfill their military service” that were mandated by South Korea.
