Will Kim Joo-seong hold the baton, keep smiling?
Professional basketball Wonju DB, with one club man and franchise star Kim Joo-seong (pictured) as acting manager, is aiming for a rebound. In the first game after the All-Star Game break, we met Changwon LG, the second-place team.
Before the All-Star Game, DB’s first half journey was like a rollercoaster. The start was good. In the first round, he recorded 6 wins and 3 losses, showing better than expected before the season.
The problem was then. In the second round, which was greeted with high expectations, it fell to 1 win and 7 losses like a lie. In the third round, they tried to revive the fire, but in the early fourth round, they lost in a row, and the atmosphere subsided again. There were few days when key players such as Kang Sang-jae, Doo Kyung-min, and Kim Jong-gyu took turns leaving the front line to form a literal ‘best 5’.
As the ups and downs continued, the command tower withdrew. Director Lee Sang-beom, who has led DB since 2017, expressed his gratitude, and the club accepted it right after the New Year’s losing streak. Head coach Kim Seong-cheol also stepped down.
Acting Kim, who took over the baton, took his first steps well after a bloody battle. On the 7th, 10 days ago, in his debut match at the command tower, he defeated Ulsan Hyundai Mobis 94-90 after an extra game and won the victory. In the end, it was victorious, but in terms of content, it was only half successful. In the middle of the game, the lead was extended to 17 points, but after that, he allowed the pursuit by frequently giving out the perimeter. In the end, the game went into overtime, and unnecessary stamina was consumed.
The evil spirit of injury that plagued DB all season has not been resolved. This time, native big man Kim Jong-kyu was confirmed with Corona 19 during the All-Star break. I can’t go on a business trip until the Samsung game in Seoul on the 21st. Kim Jong-gyu scored close to 10 points per game, and was ranked second in scoring among domestic players in the team, following Doo Kyung-min, who had previously left due to injury.온라인카지노
However, it is positive that the team seems to be melting into Kim’s tactics as time goes by. The All-Star break was enough, and future matchups aren’t too bad. On the 19th, he will meet Carrot in Goyang and Samsung on the 21st. Their head-to-head record against the two teams is 1 win, 2 losses, and 3 wins, undefeated respectively.
