Among the domestic professional sports, professional basketball has a unique modifier called ‘Hungry Corps’.

Since the launch of professional basketball in 1997, the ‘financial difficulties’ of the parent company of the basketball team, which have been forgotten, have led to the nickname ‘Hungry Corps’.

Of course, the nickname ‘Hungry Legion’ is not welcomed by the team.스포츠토토

Perhaps out of fear of adversely affecting the image of the parent company, almost without exception, the club used to protest that it was ‘not enough to be hungry’ for this nickname.

Coincidentally, all of these professional basketball ‘Hungry Legions’ left a strong impression in ‘Spring Basketball’ and were loved by fans.

First of all, the Yeosu Koreatender, the progenitor of the professional basketball ‘Hungry Corps’, made an unexpected progress to the semifinals in the 2002-2003 season.

At that time, Korea Tender could not appoint an official manager ahead of the season opening, and greeted the season with the acting manager Lee Sang-yoon, who had been coach until the previous season. I had to receive 250 million won and add that money to the club.

As Jeon Seong-soo, who was the ‘pillar root’ of the team suffering from financial difficulties, was sold in a virtual cash trade two days before the opening of the league, some predicted that it would be difficult for Koreatender to complete the season.

However, Korea Tender finished the regular league in 4th place and became a representative ‘rich club’ in the playoffs in the round of 6.

Next was Wonju TG Sambo.

In May 2005, immediately after winning the 2004-2005 season championship match, TG Sambo suffered difficulties such as the parent company Sambo Computer applying for court receivership due to financial difficulties and not being able to pay salaries for the players.

Even at the time of winning the 2004-2005 season, the parent company’s financial problems arose little by little, and eventually Dongbu became the new owner in October 2005, just before the opening of the 2005-2006 season.

At the time, led by coach Jeon Chang-jin, TG Sambo was the strongest team in the league, reaching the championship match for three consecutive years from the 2002-2003 season to the 2004-2005 season.

Recently, Incheon E-Land also inherited the genealogy.

ET Land, which jumped into professional basketball by taking over the Incheon SK basketball team from the 2003-2004 season, received 2 billion won from KBL ahead of the 2012-2013 season, and it would not be an exaggeration to say that sales rumors continued throughout the club’s operation.

However, in the 6th round of the 2012-2013 season, Samsung also set up a ‘pride of a house without a house’ by turning Samsung into a 3-game winning streak.

This year’s Goyang Carrot is also an indispensable ‘Hungry Best 5’.

The Goyang Orion basketball team, which operated a professional basketball team until last season, was acquired, but it caused controversy before the start of the season due to a delay in payment of the subscription fee, and the team’s salary was delayed.

However, the leadership of new head coach Kim Seung-gi, free agent (FA) shooter Jeon Seong-hyun, and second-year guard Lee Jung-hyun’s growth harmonized, and they rose to 5th place in the regular league.

In the playoff round of 6, they showed off their potential by defeating 4th place Ulsan Hyundai Mobis with 3 wins and 2 losses and advancing to the semifinals.

In addition, the opponent for the quarterfinals playoffs starting tomorrow (13th) is Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation, the ‘parent’ where coach Kim Seung-gi and Jeon Seong-hyun worked until last season.

Since the ‘separation’ between Ginseng Corp. and director Kim Seung-gi wasn’t that smooth, a ‘self-confidence showdown’ that cannot be backed down is expected, and whether Carrot can write another ‘spring basketball drama’ against Ginseng Corp., which ranks first in the regular league. Basketball fans are interested.
