Professional Basketball Coach Kim Seung-gi of Sono said, “Lee Jeong-hyun will Make a Real MVP Next Year”

Coach Kim Seung-gi of the Goyang Sono professional basketball team expressed his intention to make the team’s starting guard Lee Jeong-hyun the MVP next season.

Coach Kim Seung-gi met with reporters before the start of the game against Anyang Jeong Kwan-jang at Anyang Gymnasium in Gyeonggi-do on the 3rd and said,

“Lee Jeong-hyun could be a candidate for this year’s regular league MVP,” adding,

“The team’s performance is a little poor,

but we will do our best to become regular league MVP next season.” 바카라사이트

“I will try to make it,” he said.

Sono’s starting guard Lee Jeong-hyeon is recording 21.5 points, 6.5 assists, 1.8 steals, and 3.5 rebounds this season.

The domestic player is ranked 1st in scoring, but 2nd place Ha Yoon-gi (KT) has 16.4 points,

so there is a gap of more than 5 points.

Ranking second in assists, second in steals, and first in 3-point shots (2.8),

he is showing outstanding performance among domestic players.

However, as the team’s ranking remains in 8th place,

it is somewhat disappointing to become the regular league domestic player MVP,

which is determined by voting by reporters.

Other MVP candidates include Lee Seon Albano and Kang Sang-jae of Wonju DB, ranked first in the regular league.

However, there is a possibility of a surprise if the votes are distributed among multiple candidates in the DB and Lee Jeong-hyun,

who has a superior personal record, has higher voting power than expected.

One case in which the team failed to advance to the playoffs but became regular season MVP was Korea University coach Joo Hee-jung, who was with Anyang KT&G in 2009.

Coach Kim Seung-gi said, “It is unfortunate that our team did not have the right strength and lost 8 games in a row while Lee Jeong-hyun was injured,” and reflected,

“If the team’s performance had held up to some extent at that time,

we would have been able to compete for the semifinals.”

The regret is that if the team’s performance had been a little better,

Lee Jung-hyun would have been able to win MVP this season right away.

Sono remained in 8th place with 15 wins and 29 losses as of the 2nd,

and was 8.5 games behind 6th place Ulsan Hyundai Mobis (24 wins, 21 losses),

which could advance to the playoffs, so their ability to advance to the playoffs was virtually thwarted.

When asked, ‘What needs to be improved for Lee Jeong-hyun to become MVP next season?’

Coach Kim Seung-gi replied, “You just have to keep doing what you do now.

If the team’s performance gets a little better, it will be possible.”

Coach Kim said, “This year, our team struggled because we had no replacements for Lee Jeong-hyun and Jeon Seong-hyun due to injuries, etc.”
