There was a lot to eat at the game with 5,271 people, the most this season, and a rumored feast. SK, who received the enthusiastic support of the full crowd, stopped KGC from winning 11 games in a row and won 4 games in a row.
SK is currently on a winning streak even though Choi Jun-yong, who plays the role of the backbone of the team, is missing. Other players are working together to fill the void. In particular, the presence of Field Marshal Kim Seon-hyung is quite large. Kim Seon-hyung’s struggle is the driving force that allowed SK to settle in the top ranks despite many difficulties this season.
Although he may be broken at the age of his mid-30s, Kim Sun-hyung is still playing as one of the best guards, having a record-breaking season this season. His point average (15.5 points) and assists (6.4) are both career-highs over the 12 seasons since his debut.
Even in this game, Seonhyung Kim’s presence was great. Faced with tough KGC defense, Kim Seon-hyung scored 20 points and 10 assists, achieving his 4th 20-10 of the season. The home fans who filled the stadium cheered Kim Seon-hyung, who showed off his best performance.
Although his elegant skills and explosive speed that seduced the opponent stood out, what led the team to victory in the match was the game management, wide field of vision, and accurate situational judgment. Kim Seon-hyeong, who flew from the beginning, helped Bu-kyung Choi and Jae-hyeon Oh to score and brought victory. After distracting the opponent with two assists, he even scored a floater himself.
The enemy commander also applauded Kim Seon-hyung. KGC coach Kim Sang-shik said, “There are many other strengths, but Kim Sun-hyung is a very good 2-on-2 player. There were too many gaps today and the defense was not well done.”
It is not easy for a top-notch guard with the level of Kim Seon-hyung to increase his score and assists at the same time. If you focus on passing, you will score less points, and if you are motivated to score, there are many situations in which assists decrease. However, this season’s Kim Sun-hyung is different.
Although there may be a decrease in motor skills, the ability to read the field of view and the situation is gradually improving as the years accumulate. Kim Seon-hyeong, who switched to a point guard position after becoming a pro, has often been criticized for his lack of game management, but he is evolving into a high-quality player based on his experience and efforts. The command tower also highly evaluated Kim Sun-hyung’s evolution.
Coach Jeon Hee-cheol said, “First of all, my field of view has widened and my sense of rhythm has improved. In the past, the proportion of rim attacks was high, but now as I enter, my view to the other side has widened and my judgment has improved. I know when the ball will go out. There was, but now I know that timing. If the goal, field goal rate, and assists went up together, if you only thought about assists, the score should go down, but because you judged the situation well, the numbers went up together,” he praised.
In response, Kim Seon-hyung said, “I don’t feel that my field of view has increased, but it comes as a number. Seeing that both points and assists have increased, I feel that I am not running alone, but breathing with my teammates. I thought about how to use other players in today’s game as well. The director would have praised it as well.”
The excitement and passion for basketball that he felt while playing head-to-head against the opponent’s guard are also the driving force behind Kim’s career-high season. He does not neglect his efforts so as not to be pushed by his outstanding juniors.
After the confrontation with Byun Jun-hyung, Kim Seon-hyung said, “I get nervous when I play with other guards besides Jun-hyung.
Kim Seon-hyeong (6.4) is currently ranked first in the league assists ranking, with a difference of more than one average from second place (5.3). If there are no big surprises, it is likely that he will be ranked first in assists for the first time since his debut.
Kim Seon-hyung expressed his motivation, saying that as the season progressed, he became interested in being ranked first in assists. Will Kim Seon-hyung, who is stirring up the league with a broader view, continue to excel in the rest of the season?
