Robert Bolick is excited about his next spell with the Fukushima Firebonds of the B.League’s second level in Japan.
I can’t wait to play for you people in Japan and start a new chapter in my life. The effort will be well worth it, I’m sure of it. Bolick revealed on Tuesday through Instagram that the former NorthPort gunner had been signed by the Firebonds.
Please accept my sincere appreciation for the opportunity to demonstrate my basketball abilities. Thanks for putting your faith and confidence in me. I promise to perform well and not disappoint my friends and family.
After four years with the Batang Pier in the PBA, Bolick decided to try his luck elsewhere in the world.
Bolick can come home at any time during the following two seasons, or after the 52nd season, which will be in 2028, per PBA regulations.
Bolick Expresses Gratitude to NorthPort as He Hints at Future PBA Comeback
Robert Bolick thanked his former colleague and hinted at a PBA comeback in the far future.
For the [four-year] fight we had, I want to express my deep gratitude to the management, coaches, and personnel of the [NorthPort] squad. So long for now. For now, here is PBA jersey No. 8 saying goodbye.
After years of speculation, Bolick’s future has finally been put to rest with his departure from Japan.
After signing a one-year agreement with NorthPort in February 2022, there was early speculation that Bolick would be leaving for Taiwan in the PBA Governors’ Cup.
The original contract ended on April 30; however, in order for Bolick to play out the rest of the PBA season, the two sides mutually decided to extend it.
With Bolick on board, Fukushima will want to improve on its 28-32 record from the most recent season of B.League Division 2.
