“Our team is still only halfway up… I’m getting more scared in the 3rd and 4th rounds.”
(Seoul = Yonhap News) Reporter Lee Eui-jin = All of last season’s best professional basketball players (MVPs) are gathered in Seoul SK.
While regular league MVP Kim Seon-hyung and foreign player MVP Jamil Warney are holding on, playoff (PO) MVP Oh Se-geun has joined ahead of this season.
SK was evaluated as the team closest to winning, but its performance at the beginning of the season was not good.
SK, which has achieved a winning percentage of .500 with 4 wins and 4 losses through repeated wins and losses, recorded 3 consecutive wins, starting with the Korea Gas Corporation match in Daegu on the 16th, and rose to a tie for 3rd place (7 wins, 4 losses).
Oh Se-geun, who played well with 20 points and 11 rebounds in the previous away game against Suwon KT held on the 18th, also played his part with 15 points and 8 rebounds in the home game against Seoul Samsung on the 20th.
SK, where even Warney exploded with 31 points and 16 rebounds, defeated Samsung 82-75 and continued their 9th consecutive home win.
Oh Se-geun, who met with reporters after the game, was asked how much the team’s performance has improved compared to pre-season expectations, and answered, “I think it’s still only halfway.”
Oh Se-geun said, “Neither Seong-ni nor I are in perfect physical condition yet. It hasn’t been long since (Ahn) Young-jun joined,” and “Also, Gomez Di Liano should join. If everyone joins, we will be in the 3rd and 4th rounds. “It will be a scarier team,” he said.
Above all, Oh Se-geun welcomed the return of Ahn Young-jun, who completed his military service.
Ahn Young-jun, who is mid-190cm tall and has mobility, has both the ability to penetrate and shoot outside, and he also displays defensive skills to block guards and big men at the same time, so SK had high expectations for his return.
Oh Se-geun said, “Young-jun is a player who can play multiple positions. He is a great help to the team in attack and defense, so he is a great help to me. If we work together better, we will become a stronger team than we are now.”
Coach Jeon Hee-cheol diagnosed that Ahn Young-jun, who has shooting ability, pulls the defense towards him, creating space for big men like Oh Se-geun to play.
Oh Se-geun said, “My condition is returning from the last game. I am confident that I will continue to show good performance. The schedule has been tight recently, but I cannot use the schedule as an excuse.”
Oh Se-geun boasts the most sophisticated outside gun among Korea’s big men, but his field goal success rate has dropped to 38.6% this season. Even this is a figure recovered from the last two games.
Oh Se-geun said, “I am currently in the stage of developing a sense of shooting. After the second round and the second half of the third round, my sense of shooting and physical condition will both improve. The schedule was tight, but I am continuing to practice even in the meantime. I think I have to practice. “I’m practicing (shooting) a lot because I have it,” he said.
