정규리그 우승 KB 박지수, 6라운드 MVP까지 휩쓸까

Will KB Park Ji-soo, Who Won the Regular League, Sweep through the 6th Round MVP?




Managing playing time in the remaining 4 games is the key to achieving 'All Round MVP'.

All-Star MVP has already been awarded, regular league MVP is virtually 'reserved'

The core of Cheongju KB, which confirmed the regular league championship for the 2023-2024 women's professional basketball season on the 14th, is by far Park Ji-soo (25·196cm).

As the national team center, he appeared in all 26 regular league games this season and ranked first in each category with an average of 20.9 points, 15.7 rebounds, and 1.7 blocked shots. 온라인카지노사이트

In terms of contribution, which converts player performance into numbers, he ranks overwhelmingly first with 1,177 points.

As KB recorded 24 wins and 2 losses in the regular league this season, Park Ji-soo swept the MVP awards in rounds 1 to 5 of this season in the press vote to select the Most Valuable Player (MVP) in each round.

It was a natural result because KB always had good team performance in each round and Jisoo Park's individual record on that team was superior.

In the first round, KB had 4 wins and 1 loss, and Asan Woori Bank had 5 wins.

In terms of personal records, Park Ji-soo ranked 4th in scoring (17.4 points) and 1st in rebounds (16.2), which was not as overwhelming as it is now, but according to the press vote.

As a result, Jisoo Park received 54 votes and Jihyun Park of Woori Bank received 35 votes, making it a relatively close competition for MVP of the round.

Now, if Park Ji-soo wins the MVP of the last 6 rounds out of the total 6 rounds, another record will be created: winning the MVP of all rounds.

This year, Park Ji-soo is the first to sweep MVP honors in the first to fifth rounds of women's professional basketball, which was launched in 1998.

Park Ji-soo has already received this year's All-Star Game MVP, and since Park Ji-soo has reserved the regular season MVP, if Park Ji-soo takes this year's regular league 6th round MVP and the championship game MVP, all MVPs in the 2023-2024 season will go to Park Ji-soo.

In an interview after the team won 68-60 in the game against Busan BNK held at Cheongju Gymnasium in North Chungcheong Province on the 14th, Park Ji-soo was asked if he would challenge for MVP in the 6th round and answered, "Rather than thinking like that, I thought about doing my best in every game.

“First of all,” he answered.

He said, "Even when I was a student, if I paid attention to such things, my game got worse," and "If I get greedy, it can cause big trouble (injuries, etc.), so I will put aside my greed but do my best to do my best," and played in the remaining four games of the regular season.

He expressed his determination to do so.

KB coach Kim Wan-soo announced plans to reduce the playing time of key players such as Park Ji-soo and Kang I-seul in the remaining four games, so it seems unlikely that Park Ji-soo will dominate the 6th round MVP.

In an interview after confirming the regular season championship on the 14th, coach Kim Wan-soo said, "I will do my best to win the remaining games," but drew a line, saying, "I have no intention of using Park Ji-soo, Kang I-seul, etc. too much."

At the same time, he explained the reason, saying, "It would be better to give opportunities to players returning from injuries such as Shim Seong-young and Kim So-dam, as well as backup players, to develop their sense of the game and to find a good combination."

In fact, it is true that KB does not have much motivation to put in all its effort until the remaining regular season.

Although KB is ‘high-flying’ with 24 wins and 2 losses, it is not in a situation where they can set records such as the highest winning percentage of all time even if they win all the remaining games.

In the 2016-2017 season, Woori Bank recorded 33 wins and 2 losses and a winning rate of 94.3%, so even if KB ends the season with 28 wins and 2 losses, the winning rate will be 93.3%.

If this happens, they can set a record for the second-highest regular league winning percentage ever, following Woori Bank in the 2016-2017 season, which had 35 regular league games.

Currently, the second-highest regular league winning percentage is Shinhan Bank's 92.5% (37 wins, 3 losses) in the 2008-2009 season, which was a 40-game season.
