Yang Hong-seok, who received leave from the national team, said, “Marey-Cunningham is more LG senior than me.”
“Marey and Cunningham are LG seniors than me. “I went there when they were training to impress my seniors (laughter).”
The 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games men’s national basketball team is taking a short break after visiting Japan for training from the 5th to the 11th.
Yang Hong-seok joined the national team in place of Moon Seong-gon, who withdrew due to an ankle injury. Yang Hong-seok participated in the FIBA Asia Cup last year and worked with national team coach Chu Il-seung. This is one of the important reasons why Yang Hong-seok returned to the national team.
When Yang Hong-seok was given a break until the 13th after training camp in Japan, he went down to Changwon and exchanged greetings with Assem Marey and Dante Cunningham, who he will be working with for the season.
Foreign players can enter the country starting on the 6th, 45 days before the start of the season. Because Yang Hong-seok joined the national team last August, he was unable to face Marey and Cunningham as an LG player.
Yang Hong-seok said in a phone call on the 12th, “After returning from the Asian Games, I will join the team around October 7-8. “Then the KBL Cup Tournament starts right away, and I thought I had to say hello first so I wouldn’t have to play the Cup Tournament without even being able to say hello (to foreign players), and I thought I had to go,” he said. “Marey and Cunningham are LG seniors than me.” “I went there when they were training to impress my seniors (laughter),” he said.스포츠토토
Yang Hong-seok, who watched the team training without participating, said, “Marey and Cunningham have good personalities and gave the feeling of leaders on the court. “If we pull and push each other, there will be a synergy effect,” he said, looking forward to playing with the two foreign players.
LG has been a team with a weakness in forwards for a long time. This problem is resolved with the addition of Yang Hong-seok. Moreover, if Yang Hong-seok and the two foreign players who contributed greatly to the team’s runner-up finish in the regular league last season show off their chemistry, LG will create a sensation this season as well.
