the japanese are actually really strong servers not to mention the foreign players who also play there. I’ve been watching Lee’s games and her passing really needs A TON of work. So there’s no need to discredit the league she’s in, in terms of her improvement track. Moreover, Japanese may not be that tall to test how the hitters move around tall blocks, however the Japanese defense is really testing her hitting too. I think it’s still good she plays there for improvement.
I'm not discrediting the league. I actually have a soft spot for it. Probably should've worded it out better. What I'm trying to say was that playing with defensively responsible players makes one especially one with shaky reception less likely to step up. And that's what I think is happening and she's suffering for it.
