  On the closing night of the 2020-2021 regular season, the Beijing Enterprises Men's Basketball Team will face the Qingdao Men's Basketball Team.

  After the game, Sun Yue gathered his teammates as usual, put their hands together and shouted "Come on!"

  He then turned around, bowed and waved to the audience in the stands.

  When facing the fans in the stands shouting his name, looking forward to letting him play for another year, Sun Yue stared into the distance under the spotlight, unable to return to his senses for a long time.

  Then he slowly lowered his head and slowly wiped the sweat off his face, recalling everything on the field just now.

  In such a game, the data can no longer reflect the value of the king in the game. The strength of not accepting the old and not accepting defeat is the unique temperament possessed by this battle-tested veteran, which shocks people. .

  The final battle of the 2020-2021 season has also become the curtain call of the career of Dasheng.
