Michael White – Jordan Brown Match Prediction | 04-10-2019 09:30

After the time-out, Aomine is marking Kagami but when he gets the ball, Kagami passes it to his teammate rather than going into a one-on-one battle with Aomine. Kagami goes to block Aomine but he evades and prepares to shoot when Kagami jumps and blocks his Formless Shot.[22] Aomine was surprised and tells Kagami that he underestimated him and that he might be able to enjoy himself and play a little harder this time. After Seirin's attack, Aomine tells Kagami that he looked ready to go after the time-out but instead decided not to. During T's counterattack, Aomine has the ball and both Murasakibara and Midorima noticed a change of pace in Aomine's play. Kagami tells him that Kiyoshi was just in a good position and that it was a better choice.

The first match isSeirin vs T, and both teams arrived at the gym, with only Aomine missing. A few days after, the Interhigh preliminaries final league's first day has arrived. Imayoshi then talks to Aomine, telling him to get there as fast as possible. Momoi calls him on his cell phone and Aomine is revealed to still be at school, having overslept.

Aomine is surprised and stumbles, but he reacts quickly enough to block Kagami's fast break dunk. As he steps on the court, the players of Seirin recognize his tremendous presence. The half ends with him saying that Seirin is actually not that bad, and the crowd is overwhelmed by the confidence he shows while saying this. He breaks past Kagami with ease but Hyuga is there. Aomine shows up to the game moments before the first half ends. As the last minute of the second quarter starts, Aomine receives the ball immediately. He is forced by his coach and teammates to play. Aomine spins past him; however, in that moment Kagami catches up to him and blocks him.

Kagami runs a simulation of their battle in his head with a high-level tactical battle and eventually passes to Izuki, concluding that he would lose if he went against Aomine now. When the ball goes out of bounds, Aomine laughs and understands that Kagami made the right decision and that the old him would have plunged right in.[19] He understands that Kagami has evolved drastically and that his tactical battle was just the tip of the iceberg. The match goes on and T overwhelms Seirin. The ball ends up with Kagami and he decides to go up against Aomine.


When entering the Zone, one forgets everything and focuses solely on the game. Only the elite of the best of the best of players are allowed to enter the Zone, and Aomine seemed to have forced his way in. In Aomine's case, his speed doubles at the least, his power increases drastically. It is a superlative of regular concentration. Opening the gate to the Zone means opening the gate to your full potential, the full 100% of one's capabilities and abilities.

Aomine is the one who inspires Kise to play basketball- having a unique style which Kise couldn't help but admire. It is later revealed that, during their match together, Kise expresses a subconscious wish where even though he himself wants to win, he doesn't want Aomine to lose- therefore giving him a drawback and not able to copy Aomine. He is persistent in his requests to play one-on-one with Aomine back in Teik Junior High, despite the fact that he was always losing to Aomine. Aomine was shown to be livid when Kise looked at him with pity (because he had earned a lot of dangerous fouls), and finishes the match by saying that the only one who can defeat him is himself. He later manages to overcome his admiration and copy Aomine's style, but eventually loses the match.

Under this influence, he is "in the zone", which means that nobody else can stop him unless he or she is in the Zone as well. Zone is a state of being that Aomine can access once he has found a worthy opponent and reached his full potential.

At the peak of his excitement and gratitude toward Kuroko, Aomine got into "The Zone", the pinnacle state of concentration that only a few chosen athletes can achieve, and takes control of the match. Kuroko and Aomine met up a few times between the Inter-high championships and Winter Cup, as each time their talks would heat up and challenges would be made. It first worked but Aomine was able to stop it after seeing it a few times. Aomine even agreed to help Kuroko develop his Phantom Shot. At one point during the match, Kuroko used his Vanishing Drive against Aomine. He also eventually stole his Ignite Pass Kai pass, crushing his will completely. Unexpectedly, Kuroko comes back into the match and uses his Misdirection Overflow helping Seirin score a few points. Kagami then follows suit and enters "Zone" as well and during the last few seconds, he and Aomine are stuck in a stalemate until Kagami finally gains the upper hand and eventually wins against Aomine. He and Kuroko bump fists once again and promise to compete again. Eventually Kuroko also forces Aomine to miss a basket. During their match in round 1 of the Winter Cup T still towered over Seirin, but Seirin gradually got better and better over the course of the match. Because of the tough match, Aomine regained his passion and enjoyment and sees Kuroko as his friend once again. The match would then turn into a matchup between Kagami and Aomine as the two now were pretty evenly matched.

It is shown that Aomine can essentially score the basketball from any position on the court. Overall, these well rounded and polished skills make him an amazing player who is often described as "a monster".[52] Aomine is so skilled he along with Kagami is called the double ace of Team Vorpal Sword (a team made up of the Generation of Miracles). He accomplishes this by performing insane crossovers, changing his speed and direction of movement at an absurd rate, leaving his opponent behind. As the ace of the Generation of Miracles, he was regarded as "a monster" in basketball, as he was leagues ahead of anyone that came second to him, even among the talents of the Generation of Miracles. He is very fast, agile, and powerful which enables him to get past even the strongest of defensive minded players. His abilities can be described as extremely fast, extremely strong and extremely skillful.


Aomine challenges Kagami and Kagami rudely asks him who he is. Aomine gives him his name and Kagami realizes that he's one of the Generation of Miracles. Aomine overpowers Kagami and tells him his partnership with Kuroko will fail because Kagami's "light is too dim", before dashing past him and finishing the one-on-one.[12] He meets up with Momoi afterwards, and tells her that Kagami is disappointing. After asking Momoi where Kagami is, Aomine finds him practicing at a street ball court. Aomine swats away Kagami's further questions and taunts him to take him on, in order to entertain him for a bit. Aomine belittles Kagami, and finally, Kagami takes him on, Aomine's arrogance angering him.

Aomine punched Haizaki in the face to protect Kise after he realizes that Haizaki intended to take revenge for his loss against Kise- not thinking of the consequences and claiming that Haizaki had no right to interfere with the Kaij and Seirin's match. Kise, during their high-school time, admires Aomine like an idol and sets him as a role-model, but having broken free from that mindset- he managed to attain perfect copy and copy Aomine's style. In their Teik flashbacks, Aomine was shown to be often annoyed by Kise's antics like the other teammates, though the two of them still maintained a close relationship.
