Kim Seung-gi, coach of Goyang Carrot, previously took the command of Anyang KGC for 7 seasons from the 2015-16 season. He was the first step as a command tower, but he developed players with his unique charisma and won the regular game and championship match in the 2016-17 season, and the championship match in the 2020-21 season. However, coach Kim broke up with KGC after losing to Seoul SK in the championship match last season and finished runner-up, and went to the newly founded Carrot. It is not uncommon for a manager who has won the championship game for two consecutive seasons to leave the team. Jeon Seong-hyeon, a KGC signboard shooter, also followed coach Kim.카지노
Director Kim burned his fighting spirit every time he met KGC. Coach Kim, who lost in his first visit to Anyang, read through the players and left a quote, “I will definitely make you win next time.” When asked about Carrot’s financial difficulties, he also made a sniper remark, saying, “The time at KGC was more difficult,” and did not hide his discomfort with his parents.
Due to the departure of the winning master and core power, KGC was evaluated in the mid-lower ranks before the start of the season. However, coach Kim Sang-sik, who returned to the professional stage after 8 years, made the team stronger with his unique soft leadership, as if mocking this, and never came down from first place throughout the season, and ‘wire to wire’, which is only 3 times in KBL history. achieved 1st place. It is a bonus to become the first East Asian Super League (EASL) champion at the end of the season.
Regular 1st place KGC and 5th place Carrot face off properly on the way to the championship match. From the 13th, the semi-final playoffs (PO, 5 matches, 3 wins) will be held. In regular head-to-head matches, KGC leads with 4 wins and 2 losses. KGC has an advantage. Byun Jun-hyeong and Omari Spellman, as well as Oh Se-geun and Moon Seong-gon, are maintaining their power. On the other hand, Carrot caused a rebellion of the lower team in the PO of the 6th round against Ulsan Hyundai Mobis in 4th place, but his stamina was consumed in the endgame until the 5th game. It is encouraging that Jeon Seong-hyeon, who suffers from sudden deafness, returned from the 4th round of PO in the round of 6 and gave a blow at every critical moment.
The guard match between Byun Jun-hyung, who was raised to MVP level by coach Kim Seung-gi, and Lee Jung-hyun, who is in his 2nd year and is showing his potential after meeting coach Kim, will be more interesting.
After confirming the PO advance to the semifinals, coach Kim said, “I will never just die. Even if we lose, we will try to make you think that our team is really difficult and difficult to play against. I want to try a match that the fans love,” he said.
The regular 2nd place Changwon LG and 3rd place SK’s semifinal PO will start on the 14th. In spring basketball, it is the first reunion in 20 years since LG won 3 wins and 2 losses in the 2000-01 season semifinal PO. The matchup of the season was tight with 3 wins and 3 losses.
