Pro basketball Suwon KT Sonicboom, which was on the verge of leaping into the middle ranks with a steep rise, including 6 consecutive wins during the year-end and New Year holidays, has recently fallen into a swamp of sluggishness, making its prospects for advancing into the postseason bleak.
As of the 24th, KT is in 7th place with 14 wins and 19 losses in the ‘2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Professional Basketball’. Not only is there a 9 game gap with leader Anyang KGC, but even the 50% win rate is far away.
KT, which had been on the rise with 6 consecutive wins until the beginning of this year and had a win rate of 50%, has since been sluggish with 1 win and 4 losses in 5 games, and is in danger of falling back to the bottom ranks. Moreover, it is even more disappointing because it is a result in a situation where all two foreign players were replaced and even Asian quarter players joined, aiming for a rebound with full strength. 먹튀검증
KT’s recent sluggishness is attributed to the severe ups and downs of key players and the lack of a strategy to overcome them. In the last 5 games, KT’s average score is only 73.8 points. On the 10th, against Jeonju KCC, it showed an empty ball that stopped at 60 points.
In particular, Yang Hong-seok, who should hold the center of the team, scored 13 points against Ulsan Hyundai Mobis on the 8th and Seoul Samsung on the 19th, 1 point against KCC, 3 points against Seoul SK on the 21st, and 2 points against Wonju DB on the 23rd. It is putting its reputation to shame. Jung Sung-woo, who should play the role of Heo Hoon, who enlisted in the military, missed the last two games in a row because he was so caught up in hunting that his presence was dim.
Also, after the All-Star break, Dave Ildefonso, an Asian quarterback who started playing against Samsung on the 19th, is not meeting expectations. He’s only averaging 5 or 6 points per game after three appearances. In response, coach Seo Dong-cheol also said, “I think I can do better, but I play too selflessly. I will order to move more actively in the future.”
On the other hand, it is pointed out that the cause of KT’s sluggishness is the absence of tactics and strategy on the bench. It is also a problem that the selection of players differs from game to game to the extent that there is no clear selection except for foreign players and Ha Yoon-ki, as well as the inability to come up with a sharp prescription for this even though the frustrating attack pattern and poor rebound are repeated every game.
KT, who has become a candidate for the championship and has to worry about advancing into the postseason, requires various tactical changes from the bench along with the players’ efforts to rebound.
