On the threshold of the professional basketball (KBL) championship match, the ‘Kim Seung-gi Series’ was concluded.
Goyang Carrot (Day One Sports), led by coach Kim Seung-gi, defeated Ulsan Hyundai Mobis with a playoff record of 3-2 in the 6th round after a bloody battle in the 5th game on the 10th and advanced to the semifinals. Despite the financial crisis caused by the parent company that shook the club throughout this season, coach Kim and his players revolted the lower seed team and extended the deadline for ‘Carrot’s Last Spring Basketball’. Finally, the next opponent is Anyang Keishi (KGC) Ginseng Corporation, the team that coach Kim left last year.
Coach Kim worked for 7 years as the commanding tower of Ginseng Corporation until last season and made playoffs in all but one season. He spent glorious years at Ginseng Corporation by winning two championship rings, but said goodbye after finishing runner-up last year. ‘Kim Seung-gi’s Basketball’ was transplanted to Carrot, a new team, and Ginseng Corporation, which sent Kim Seung-gi away, won the third ‘Wire-to-Wire’ regular league championship in the history of professional basketball, with Kim Sang-sik coaching the team.
Now director Kim Seung-gi deals with his legacy. The matchup that symbolizes this structure is a guard match between Carrot Lee Jung-hyun and Ginseng Corporation Byun Jun-hyung. The two, who had been called star guards to represent Korea since their college days, both went through the hands of coach Kim Seung-gi. Byun Jun-hyung was nominated for MVP by filling the vacancy left by Lee Jae-do two years ago, and Lee Jung-hyun also took his place as an ace leading Carrot’s winning team this season, his second year since his debut. 메이저사이트
The record is one head at a time. Looking at the average points scored in the regular season and the playoffs, Lee Jung-hyun scored 15 points and 24 points, respectively, and seems to be one step above in terms of explosive power. However, in 6 head-to-head matches with Ginseng Corporation, it was the weakest among the 10 teams with an average of 11.2 points. On the other hand, Byun Jun-hyung, who is said to have ‘opened his eyes’ in coordination and game management this season, scored an average of 16 points in five games against Carrot, second best out of ten teams.
