‘Super team’ KCC is the #1 candidate to win the professional basketball championship according to the head coach… SK is also strong



KCC coach Jeon Chang-jin pointed to KT… Heo Woong “It’s a burden, but I want to seize this rare opportunity.”

Busan KCC, which boasts a 'luxurious lineup', was selected as the strongest candidate to win the 2023-2024 season among professional basketball coaches.

During the opening media day of the 2023-2024 Cheong Kwan Jang Professional Basketball Tournament held at the Olympic Parktel in Songpa-gu, Seoul on the 16th, when asked 'Who are the championship candidates excluding our team?', 7 out of 10 team coaches (including multiple responses) called KCC's name. 바카라사이트

Wonju DB coach Kim Joo-seong, Seoul Samsung coach Eun Hee-seok, Seoul SK coach Jeon Hee-cheol, Changwon LG coach Jo Sang-hyun, and Suwon KT coach Song Young-jin called KCC.

KCC, with the addition of Heo Woong, Lee Seung-hyun, and La Geon-ah, as well as Choi Jun-yong, won the KBL Cup tournament that ended on the 15th.

New foreign player Alize DeShawn Johnson took the lead in winning the finals and was selected as the Most Valuable Player (MVP), heralding her performance.

Coach Kim Joo-seong said, “KCC has formed a ‘super team,’” and coach Eun Hee-seok also explained the reason, saying, “It is well-organized with excellent players for each position, making it suitable for the small ball game we pursue these days.”

Coach Cho Sang-hyun explained, “The member composition and transitions are good,” and Coach Song Young-jin explained, “The players’ abilities and experience are excellent.”

Coach Jeon Hee-cheol evaluated KCC with one word, “I just count.”

Coach Kim Sang-sik of defending champion Anyang CheongKwanJang and Manager Cho Dong-hyun of Ulsan Hyundai Mobis pointed out SK along with KCC.

SK, which reached the championship game in two consecutive seasons, sent Choi Jun-yong to KCC, but Oh Se-geun joined.

Coach Kim Sang-sik said, "If you look at the composition of players and reinforcements, the two teams are strong candidates for the championship," and coach Dong-hyun Cho also predicted that if there are no major variables, citing the composition of members, the two teams will compete for the championship.

Goyang Sono's coach Kim Seung-gi and Daegu Korea Gas Corporation's coach Kang Hyeok pointed out SK's comparative advantage.

Coach Kang cited the fact that SK has many players with championship experience and the discharge of star forward Ahn Young-jun as a factor in improving the team's strength.

KCC's coach Jeon Chang-jin, whose name was called the most, said, "The cup competition is not a competition where you give your best," and humbled himself, saying, "There is Heo Hoon who is being discharged from the military, and I think KT, who is forming the national team lineup, is the strongest."

KCC's Heo Woong said of the evaluation of the championship candidates, "Of course it's a burden," but emphasized, "I'm trying to enjoy that pressure during the season.

It's rare to be able to play as such a good member during my career, so I want to seize the opportunity."

On this day, KCC and SK, who were considered the 'top power' and 'opponents', are intertwined with Choi Jun-yong.

Choi Jun-yong, who was very active in SK until last season, changed to the KCC uniform this season and achieved the height of the 'super team'.

Regarding this, SK coach Jeon Hee-cheol said, "Trading of professional players is a business.

Just because a player from our team moved, we do not have a different attitude towards Busan KCC."

He added, "It is true that it is difficult because the composition of KCC members is so good, but it is a burden to the fans.

“I want to show you what I’m good at,” he said.

Coach Jeon Chang-jin also said bluntly, “A professional cannot have different feelings about something like that.”

Coach Jeon said, "There is a lot of talk about Choi Jun-yong, and I get asked a lot, 'Does Choi Jun-yong listen well?', but personally, I don't understand.

He is a great player who adapts well to the team, listens well to the coach, and raises the team's tension.

He added, “He has a strong will to win, so he over-acts, but he is the best player and I am 100% satisfied.”
