“The most perfect player? Oh Se-geun. He is a player who puts all 9 people on the court in his eyes and plays.”
Hyundai Mobis head coach Yoo Jae-hak, who is regarded as the best coach in Korean basketball history, chose Anyang KGC’s Oh Se-geun as his best player in an interview last month without hesitation.
The 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Professional Basketball Championship (Final) is a series that allows you to properly see the true value of Oh Se-geun, as coach Yoo Jae-hak said.
Basketball is a sport with a high proportion of star players. If there are two players with good offensive skills on a team, it is possible to achieve a certain level of performance by increasing the attack ratio of one-two punches. KGC’s opponent, Seoul SK, is a typical ‘Hero Ball’ team that relies heavily on one-two punches. When Choi Jun-yong, the main player, left the team, Kim Seon-hyeong and Jameel Warney increased the attack weight of one-two punches to an extreme, showing the power of ‘molbbang basketball’ properly.
Of course, ‘Molppang Basketball’ takes a long time to own the ball with a one-two punch. It is Kim Seon-hyung and War who not only try to score in SK, but also attract the opponent’s defense to pass and see the chances of their teammates.
KGC is a bit different. It is Byun Jun-hyung and Omari Spellman who have the longest ball possession time, but Oh Se-geun dominates the game. He sits in the post and doesn’t have a self-centered attack that takes long ball possession time, and there aren’t many patterns for him, but he puts in 20 points at a time. Find a vacancy and take a high efficiency score with a mid-range shot or scoring under the goal.
The 3rd game of the final held on the 29th at the Jamsil Student Gymnasium was a bout that properly showed Oh Se-geun’s power. He found an empty space in the opponent’s defense and succeeded in an easy mid-range shot, and took the opponent’s soul away with his astute give and go play. At the beginning of the 4th quarter, Oh Se-geun’s consecutive give and go scores played a decisive role in destroying SK. Even if he catches the ball from the outskirts for a while, he made a chance for his teammates to shoot outside with a concise pass. It was a play that naturally made me admire ‘basketball makes me stifled’. 안전놀이터
In the 1st to 3rd games of the finals, Oh Se-geun averaged 21.7 points, 11.3 rebounds and 2.0 assists. Even the field goal rate reaches 65.2%.
In the history of the professional basketball finals, there is not a single Korean player who recorded 20 points and 10 rebounds and a field shooting success rate of 60% or more. Even among foreign players, there are only five players: Artimus McClary, Mustafa Hope (2000-2001 season), Olumide Oyedeji (2005-2006 season), Terence Leder, and Reggie Okosa (2007-2008 season). It was an era when two foreign players participated simultaneously. There is not a single player in the one-person participation system.
It is not an exaggeration to say that Oh Se-geun’s performance in this series goes beyond the level of a domestic player and is the best foreign player ever. Oh Se-geun, who is dominating the series with the highest level of performance ever, even without mold bread. So he is greater
