If coach Kim Sang-sik and coach Jeon Hee-cheol go back to the days of ‘mobile missile’ and ‘airborne’, will the prospect for the championship match change?
Media Day for the 2022-23 SKT Adot Professional Basketball Championship held at the KBL Center on the 23rd. During the Q&A session with the fans that day, there was a very interesting question that could be imagined. It was whether the coaches of each club could help in this championship match if they went back to their heyday.
Coach Kim and coach Jeon are players who were active during the basketball party. In particular, coach Kim was a star player who made a name for each generation, such as being called ‘mobile missile’ and manager Jeon being called ‘airborne’.
Coach Kim was a shooter who succeeded in shooting accurately regardless of the distance during his active career. It was called a ‘moving missile’ because it took a lot of movement as well as distance and fired great shots.
Coach Jeon boasted his greatest popularity during the basketball festival. Standing in the middle of 190cm, he played both the forward and center roles, yet he was a star representing Korea University and Orient, boasting accurate shooting and great elasticity.
What kind of positive effect can it bring if the two coaches become players of KGC and SK, which are now in command? Coach Kim and former coach both smiled and answered the funny question.
Coach Kim said, “Now our players are doing very well. If I go to the level of a sixth man, I think I will be able to faithfully fulfill my role,” he said. If I play like a sixth man, I think I can do it enough.”
The former coach showed confidence. He said, “In my prime, I think he is an essential player in the championship match now. It is a situation that requires a forward. Because I know myself well, I think I can help my teammates play well without protesting to the referee.”
Here, Kim Sun-hyung added strength. He said, “The position we need the most right now is number 4. (Jeon Hee-chul) If the coach is on our team, we can confidently say that he is a stronger force than KGC.”안전놀이터
Regarding this, director Jeon said, “If (Moon) Seong-gon is good enough, I… . Maybe (Kim) Seon-hyung, (Jamie) Warni, and me should all play ‘Molppang Basketball’. (Oh) Se-geun can be taken out. (Omari) I don’t think I can stop Spellman,” he laughed.
