Reporter Euijin Lee = “My field of view has broadened and my sense of rhythm has improved. Above all, my judgment has improved so much that my efficiency has increased.”
Jeon Hee-cheol, coach of Seoul SK, a professional basketball team, saw that 12 years after his pro debut, Kim Seon-hyeong (35), who holds the position of “assault leader” of the team, is still growing.
In the 2022-2023 SKT Adot Professional Basketball regular league home game held at Jamsil Student Gymnasium in Seoul on the 19th, Jeon defeated leader Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation 85-79, and praised Kim Seon-hyung to reporters.
He said, “Previously, the percentage of options to break through and put up a layup was 80-90%, but now, even after breaking through, I distinguish between when to enter (under the goal) and when not to.” , shot success rate, and assists all went up.”
Kim Sun-hyung scored 20 points and 10 assists that day, becoming the number one contributor to SK’s victory.
Kim Sun-hyung, who has played in 44 games this season, is recording 15.5 points and 6.4 assists per game.
Among domestic players, Jeon Seong-hyun (19 points, Carrot), Lee Dae-seong (18 points, Korea Gas Corporation), Heo Woong (15.9 points, KCC), and Doo Gyeong-min (15.6 points, DB) are fifth in scoring.
Assist is unrivaled number one. It is more than one difference from second place Byun Jun-hyung (5.3).
Kim Seon-hyung scored the best in both categories with 15.1 points and 6 assists in the 2016-2017 season.
The season he will play at 35 is the best performance of his career.
Kim Seon-hyung said, “I can feel the fact that I am breathing and running with the players while watching the score and assist record coming out well.”
He laughed, saying, “These days, the game management seems to be doing everything I want,” and “I’ve never had an assist title before, but now that it’s the second half of the season, I’m greedy. It’s up to my fellow players.”
Kim Seon-hyung, who was selected as the MVP of last season’s championship game, said in an interview with Yonhap News in May of last year that he wanted to improve further, saying, “Basketball has become more fun now.”
At the time, he said, “Upgrading is essential for basketball to continue to be fun in the future,” and said, “I want to become a player at a level where the defense can’t figure out what to do.” 스포츠토토
In fact, this season, Kim Seon-hyeong neutralized his opponent’s defense by focusing exclusively on the game.
Kim Seon-hyung, who scored 47 points against Korea Gas Corporation in Daegu on the 28th of last month, which went through the third overtime, also scored 29 points against Samsung in Seoul on the 16th of this month, which also played an extended game.
SK won both matches.
Kim Seon-hyung, whose explosive speed was considered an advantage from the time he entered the professional league, added technology and game management skills. Recently, a player receiving a similar evaluation is Byeon Jun-hyung (27), the charge leader of Ginseng Corporation.
On the 9th, Byeon Jun-hyeong, who was praised by coach Kim Sang-sik for “distinguishing when to do and when not to do,” led the Ginseng Corporation solo this season and is also being mentioned as a candidate for MVP in the regular league.
Byun Jun-hyung is recording 14.3 points and 5.3 assists per game.
On this day, he scored 12 points and 6 assists in the ‘Best Guard Confrontation’, but gave up both the team victory and individual performance to Kim Sun-hyung.
Kim Seon-hyung said, “Byun Jun-hyung is very good at basketball these days. The water has risen.”
He continued, “Rather than a one-on-one match, I focus on how to beat Ginseng Corporation.”
