“I don’t think there are many players like him in the front line.”
Goyang Carrot won 89-75 in the second leg of the 2022-23 SKT Adot Pro Basketball Quarterfinals playoff against Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation held at Anyang Indoor Gymnasium on the 15th. David won the battle between David and Goliath. At the center was Lee Jung-hyun.
Lee Jung-hyun dominated the game in the second game with 32 points, 2 rebounds, 2 assists and 5 steals. He was the brightest star on the court and showed off the best performance among all 2nd year pros.메이저사이트
Lee’s performance in this year’s playoffs did not simply make Carrot laugh. It also captured the heart of coach Il-seung Choo, who had to organize the national team ahead of the upcoming 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games.
Even if it is not, Lee Jung-hyun was listed on the preliminary 35-man list of the national team. When he was a student at Yonsei University, he already had the Taegeuk mark, but he was unable to participate in the 2019 FIBA China Basketball World Cup finals.
However, Lee Jung-hyun then and Lee Jung-hyun now are different. He is one of the best guards in the KBL right now. Compared to Kim Seon-hyung and Byun Jun-hyung, there is no shortage of things other than his experience. He was unrivaled in international competitions during his youth representative days. As of now, if there are no major problems, it is natural for him to join the national team.
Director Chu, who is cold to reality, also praised Lee Jung-hyun. He is currently visiting the KBL playoff site and checking the skills of the players. I also watched Carrot’s game, and Lee Jung-hyun completely captured Choo’s heart.
Director Chu said, “It is getting more and more powerful. I also got some free time. It’s very good.” He laughed.
At the same time, he said, “I don’t think there are many players like him in the front line.”
A young player’s national team experience becomes a catalyst for growth. Many players who have already reached the top of the KBL have walked this path. Lee Jung-hyun is no different. He is a player who should lead Korean basketball in the future. If superstars such as Heo Hoon and Byun Jun-hyung appeared after Kim Seon-hyung and Lee Dae-seong, then Lee Jung-hyun should stand shoulder to shoulder with them.
The year 2023 is expected in many ways. It is a year to watch another Lee Jung-hyun, who will play a big role in the Asian Games, starting with the two warm-up games against Japan.
