DB’s offense and defense conversion has become faster” (LG coach Cho Sang-hyun)
“Malcolm Thomas expects intelligent play” (Kim Joo-seong, acting DB coach)
Changwon LG held the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot professional basketball regular season at the Changwon Indoor Gymnasium on the 3rd. We meet Wonju DB in the league.
From the 2022-2023 season, coach Jo Sang-hyun, who was newly appointed, identified LG’s strengths and weaknesses. Coach Cho Sang-hyun, who identified the strengths and weaknesses, communicated a lot with the team. The purpose of communication was to give the team the necessary color.
The color that director Cho Sang-hyun tried to put on is ‘sticky air defense movement’. He laid the foundation for a quick attack with solid defense and pursued organized and organic offensive movements.
The color change that LG wanted came out well. ‘Sticky defense’, ‘strong energy level’, and ‘quick attack transition’ are being done well. Lee Jae-do (180cm, G) and Asem Marey (202cm, C) held the center, and Yoon Won-sang (180cm, G) made a new comeback.
Justin Gutang (188cm, F), Kim Junil (200cm, C), and Dante Cunningham (202cm, F) have established themselves as key options for the second unit. The second unit is one of the factors that made LG’s rise.
LG accumulated ‘victory DNA’ like that. They have only lost once in their last 8 matches. Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation, the leader, and Seoul SK, the defending champion, were also caught after a close battle. Confidence is great.
Before the game, LG coach Cho Sang-hyun said, “DB’s recent performance has improved. Airborne transfer speed increased. It is more powerful when the big man runs together. Also, the big men are doing well in the high fight.”
After that, he said, “I set the defensive strategy in the direction of giving to players who need to give and giving less to players who need to block.”
Meanwhile, DB is challenging for the 6th place alone.
DB faced a power change after the end of the 2021-2022 season. Heo Woong (185cm, G), who was the team’s ace, obtained FA status, and Yante Mayton (200cm, F), a foreign player with the first option, also advanced to Japan.
So DB brought Kyungmin Doo and Seon Albano Lee (185cm, G). I wanted the synergy of the two guards. Also, Kim Jong-gyu (206cm, C) and Kang Sang-jae (200cm, F) brought forwards to relieve the burden. It was Choi Seung-wook (195cm, F) who had a combination of activity, energy level and physical condition.
However, DB faced the opening game of the 2022-2023 season with incomplete power. Both Gyeong-Min Doo and Chan-Hee Park (190cm, G) were unable to play on the court. This led to the burden of Albano. Albano worked hard until the end, but DB lost both the first two games.
From the opening game at home, they showed a completely different performance. Round 1 ended with 6 wins and 3 losses. However, after losing all of their first six matches of the second round, DB’s mood subsided once again. DB coach Lee Sang-beom and DB head coach Kim Seong-cheol voluntarily resigned, and coach Kim Joo-seong is taking the helm as acting manager. Winning the last 4 matches. on the rise Also, a new foreign player named Malcolm Thomas joined. 바카라
Acting DB coach Kim Joo-seong said before the game, “I only trained with (Malcolm Thomas) for three days. Also, after Thomas played in another league, he took a month off. I am sorry about those things,” he said.
He continued, “As a veteran, I can play intelligently. he’s a smart player The shot distance is long, so you can expect options by shooting. I have to watch the defense and rebounding under the goal, but I think I have BQ to offset my weaknesses.”
