From track and field to fire and water… , ‘KBL version of Doosan Bears’ KGC
Professional baseball Doosan Bears have a special team color. True to the concept of a ‘bear of perseverance’, he is very skilled and excellent in maximizing and utilizing his power. If you want to be overflowing with good players in the two-hit game, you press down the opponent with your strength, just like any other team. On the other hand, when the power within the team does not meet expectations, it emerges as a dark horse by using the part that can be competitive within the resources it has.
Where is that? As the saying goes, ‘even if a rich man goes through three generations’, even at the moment when the existing core power is constantly being drained, a replacement is constantly appearing and gaining a reputation as a so-called ‘Hwasubun baseball’. If you have it, if you don’t have it, you don’t have it… , Other teams can’t hide their envious eyes at the way they keep their pride as a famous baseball family. Although it is a team sport on the professional stage that there are many variables in each season, it is a good example of how long power can be maintained once well equipped.
If you look for a team similar to Doosan in KBL, Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation is definitely the first to be counted. They are currently leading the league, with former manager Lee Sang-beom picking key players and then former manager Kim Seung-ki developing them, and now they have established themselves as one of the most prestigious teams in the league. Even when the new manager Kim Sang-shik was replaced this season, there were quite a few skeptical voices saying, ‘The spring of Anyang may stop’.
This is because it was expected that it would be difficult to fill the vacancy of former director Kim Seung-gi, who made the sticky and solid current KGC. In the case of coach Kim Sang-sik, he is an experienced command tower who has received exceptionally many leadership opportunities in KBL, including acting coaches, but he has not been able to compete with the masters amid countless criticisms such as ‘tactically simple’, ‘unable to read the flow of the game’, and ‘weak in big games’. Because they had a different image.
But Team KGC was strong. In addition to the former coach, Jeon Seong-hyun (31‧188.6cm), who is called the best shooter in the league, was not shaken at all even when the team moved to free agency. Yang Hee-jong (38‧194cm) and Oh Se-geun (35‧199.8cm), two experienced veteran pillar players, managed the team well, and Byun Jun-hyung (27‧185.3cm) and Moon Seong-gon (29‧195.6cm), who were in their prime, played a good role. The runner’s unique energy boiled up without change.
It is analyzed that director Kim Sang-shik was also wise. Many of the new command towers make a lot of attempts to change the team to suit their taste at the time they took office. On the other hand, coach Kim did not touch the well-prepared table as much as possible, befitting a person who has been evaluated as ‘reading the team atmosphere well’. Omari Spellman (25‧206cm) and Daryl Monroe (37‧197cm) took the combination of foreign players as a representative example.
The former coach made the team so well, and Yang Hee-jong and Oh Se-geun were good at playing coaches, so the team energy was maintained just by encouraging the players and clapping. Of course, Director Kim didn’t just put a spoon on the table. Knowing that an already completed team needed a carrot rather than a stick and putting it into practice was a skill that came from long experience.
Filling the position of Jeon Seong-hyeon with Bae Byeong-jun (32‧191cm) was clearly a move of God. It would be difficult to catch up with Seong-Hyun Jeon in terms of overall skills, but in KGC, which has good organized movements, it could be of great help if you put in a good shot from an open chance. As he stably put in a 3-point shot from the perimeter and other players joined in the perimeter attack, Jeon Seong-hyun’s vacancy was not greatly felt.
Considering that he was a player who did not stand out much throughout his playing days, it can be said that coach Kim’s stake is absolute in giving Bae Byung-jun a chance and developing him into a useful shooter. As can be seen from the case of Jeon Seong-hyun and Bae Byung-joon, KGC’s ‘Hwasubun Basketball’ is a word that has become quite familiar even among fans.
Key players such as Kim Tae-sul, Park Chan-hee토토사이트, Lee Jung-hyun, Lee Jae-do, and Jeon Seong-hyeon continued to escape from the Ginseng Shingi, which can be said to be the beginning of the heyday of Ginseng Corporation, but somehow they filled the void and are still maintaining their power to aim for the championship. Of course, KGC fans would not be happy to see the main axis of the team leave. Because of this, most of the opinions that Byun Jun-hyung and Moon Seong-gon want to keep.
It is not only recently that KGC is being compared to Doosan. From 2007 to 2009, KGC, with Joo Hee-jeong (46‧181cm) at the forefront, showed the standard of a team running together with Doosan, a professional baseball team called the track and field team. With Joo Hee-jeong at the center, Yang Hee-jong, Eun Hee-seok, Hwang Jin-won, Lee Hyun-ho, Kim Il-doo, and Yoon Young-pil ran again and again. There were some fast players and some players with poor feet, but all of them continued to run around, centered on the physical fitness leader Hee-Jung Joo.
Basically, through solid stamina and diligence that goes one step further than others, he has digested not only interpersonal marks but also organized defense well. All the players on the court launched an attack, creating numerous open chances through constant screen play and half-time fast passes, which led to a good attack success rate. Physical problems that can arise from running a lot have been covered to a large extent through active rotation.
The foreign player union was also operated according to that color. In the 2007-08 season, Marqueen Chandler (41, 196.8cm) and TJ Cummings (42, 203cm), and in the 2008-09 season, Calvin Warner (43, 196.5cm) was with Chandler, but there were regrets in terms of height, but they played basketball together. It is evaluated that the liver combination was well suited.
In particular, the 2008-09 season left a considerable disappointment for the team. Joo Hee-jung, who won the MVP of the regular season and improved her skills, tried to win the championship through basketball, but as Warner, one of the powerhouses, could no longer play due to an unfortunate incident, the momentum that was good in the early days was crushed. It is evaluated that if KGC, which chose speed instead of height, had won the championship at the time, there would have been a lot of changes in the league trend.
