Why did Acting Supervisor Kim Joo-seong appoint Lee Min-seok?
“When the big lineup entered, I wanted a 3-point shot derived from Lee Min-seok.”
Wonju DB unfortunately lost 74-76 in an away game against Changwon LG held at Changwon Gymnasium on the 3rd. At one point in the second quarter, they failed to maintain a 17-point lead, and failed to win their second five-game winning streak of the season.
What stands out in recent matches against DB is that Lee Min-seok often gets opportunities to play. Lee Min-seok also played 4 minutes and 40 seconds in the game that day.
Lee Min-seok wore the DB uniform as the 14th pick in the 2021 KBL rookie draft.
Last season, it was all about 12 minutes and 52 seconds in the match against Jeonju KCC on October 27, 2021. At the time, he threw four 3-pointers and made one.
This season, on December 6 last year, he played 3 minutes and 58 seconds in a head-to-head match against Ulsan Hyundai Mobis. He also made one 3-pointer. 메이저사이트
Since then, Lee Min-seok, who has not been given a chance to play, has been on the court often, even for a small amount of time, since the match against Suwon KT on the 23rd of last month.
When Park In-woong can no longer play on the court due to injury, Min-seok Lee fills in.
Lee Min-seok spent four years of college at Dongguk University. Since his freshman year, he has been a scoring player, averaging in double digits. Of course, he was sluggish with an average of about 5 points in his junior year, but he recovered to double digits in his senior year and averaged 17.7 points in the MBC National College Basketball Championship in his senior year.
Ho-geun Lee, coach of Dongguk University, said, “The strength is the shooting ability and 1:1. The faster the shot timing, the better. He has athletic ability, so his rebound and defense are not bad for his height,” explained Lee Min-seok.
The opinions of each club scout were a little divided.
Some say, “I’m worried about the outside shot, but if I refine it, I’ll grow into a stable player”, “It’s not bad to be nominated for the second round. In high school, he was a good enough player to go to college, but if he went there, he wouldn’t have been able to play the game, so he went to college well under him”, “What I look high on is the shot. It has a lot of power and a lot of movement. If you have an advantage in height, post-up is possible,” he explained, explaining Lee Min-seok’s strengths.
On the other hand, “I don’t see a significant advantage”, “It’s ambiguous. He’s small at number 2 (shooting guard) and doesn’t make much of an impression. He doesn’t have a clear advantage, but he does well in practice matches. It’s okay, but there’s nothing to come to mind or suggest. He feels good, so I think he deserves to be chosen.”
What is the acting DB manager Kim Joo-seong hoping to give Min-seok Lee, who has had few opportunities to play, hoping for a chance to play?
Acting coach Kim Joo-seong said after the game against LG, “Our shot success rate averages about 3-4 in the last 7 games. Like today (3rd), a 3-point shot is needed when opening or following. But Albano’s catch-and-shoot is unstable, and Kim Hyeon-ho goes back and forth. “You can’t ask Park Chan-hee or other players to shoot,” he said. The big three (Kang Sang-jae, Kim Jong-gyu, and foreign players) have yet to fully settle down, so there is no chance for a 3-point shot. I am looking forward to that part and appointing Lee Min-seok.”
Lee Min-seok tries every 3-point shot even if he runs for a short time this season. However, the success rate is not high at 28.6% (2/7).
If Lee Min-seok shows that he can land a blow whenever he enters, he will be given more chances in the future.
