‘I’m not from the national team coach otherwise!’
Recently, fans of Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation and Changwon LG Sakers are having fun. Contrary to the original expectation, it is because they are competing for the regular league title by repeating a winning streak. Currently, KGC is in the lead with 29 wins and 11 losses, and it is the only one out of 10 teams to record a win rate (0.725) in the 70% range, continuing a steep solo system from the beginning of the season.
LG is also scary. With 26 wins and 14 losses (0.650 win rate), it is in a state of riding a bit with the leader KGC, but it is maintaining the top rank without ups and downs with steady and stable performance. Until the season, there were not many people who expected that KGC and LG would go this well. KGC moved its nest to Goyang Carrot through free agency, including the departure of coach Kim Seung-gi, who made the team’s color as a strong team, and the main shooter Jeon Seong-hyun. LG was in such a bad situation that it failed to advance to the playoffs for three consecutive seasons.
There are many reasons for the rise of KGC and LG, but the leadership of coach Kim Sang-sik and Jo Sang-hyun, who newly took over the team this season, should not be overlooked. Various difficulties were expected in that he had just taken the baton, but even in such circumstances, he melted his own basketball into the team and led the competition for the lead. It doesn’t sound like an exaggeration to say, ‘The biggest hits of both teams this season are the two coaches’.
The two coaches have many things in common, including the fact that they were active as shooters representing the league during their active career, but the most notable among them is their career as a national team commander. Currently, the national team is coached by Choo Il-seung, and those who previously held the baton were Kim Sang-shik and Cho Sang-hyun. In line with the good results this season, there is an atmosphere pouring out from all over the place, saying, ‘Those who coached the national team are different’.
In a phone call with Jump Ball, KGC coach Kim Sang-sik said, “The players are doing well and are leading, but I feel ashamed and grateful to receive excessive praise in the process. He has built up his career in several teams, but among them, I think being in charge of the national team command tower is a great medal for me personally. He said, “I was able to realize and feel a lot in the process of bringing together players with strong personalities from different teams and playing the game.”
In addition, “The national team is literally a place to represent the country. Because of this, even if it is a small national competition, you may feel more pressure than playing a championship match in professional basketball. It consumes so much energy that the whole body loses energy after playing just one game, but there are many things to learn. It seems clear that the experience at that time was of great help in growing as a leader.”
Kim Dong-gwang, director of the Korea Basketball Association, is one of the living witnesses of Korean basketball who has experienced various positions as an administrator in KBL and KBA, including serving as manager of the unemployment team, professional team, and national team. 카지노사이트 When he was the national team coach, he also worked with Kim Sang-sik and Cho Sang-hyun, who were coaches at the time, in various international competitions. He asked him why the two coaches were doing so well.
“I have no choice but to do well. Originally, they were talented junior leaders, but they grew even more through coaching and coaching in the national team. The national team coach is the position of a proven leader. As it is a position where you have to wear the Taegeuk mark on your chest and command the best players in Korea, you have no choice but to be careful in appointing a coach. In the past, the coaches of the winning team on the professional stage were in charge, but as they went back and forth between the two teams, there were times when it was difficult to fully focus on either team or national team. For this reason, the full-time supervisor system was introduced, and in order to ensure fairness, changes were made to the method of selecting directors through open recruitment. Each candidate is checked in various areas, such as their report card and career in the national team, and the person with the highest score is finally dropped. It seems that leaders as capable as the picky selection method will lead the national team in the future. ”
