We're No Longer (僕らはもう, Bokura wa Mō) is the sixty-fifth episode and the fifteenth episode of the 3rd season of the Kuroko no Basuke anime.
The head coach advises Aomine to keep playing basketball until he can find a worthy opponent. Teiko wins the National finals. One day, the head coach collapses, and the assistant coach is forced to take over the program. The individual members of the team begin to undergo rapid growth in strength and ability. Aomine leaves in the middle of practice one day, and the coach reluctantly gives him permission to skip practices so long as he shows up to games, leaving Aomine in even more despair, conflicted over the lack of strong competition and his passion for basketball.
After Murasakibara demands to also be allowed to skip practices, openly defying Akashi, the latter decides to challenge him one-on-one. The other members of the Generation of Miracles are shocked as Murasakibara seemingly overwhelms Akashi, but just as Akashi is about to lose, he switches personalities and crushes Murasakibara. Akashi, now in his alternate persona, gives the rest of the team permission to skip practice so long as they win matches. He later tells Kuroko (who failed to convince Aomine to return to practice) that there are actually two of him.
