Lee Dae-seong (190cm, G) has the best scoring ability among domestic players.
Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation and Seoul SK played the last match of the 2022-2023 season. Although the winner and loser were split at the end of the 7th game, the intensity of praise for the two teams was similar. Fans watching this were also very impressed.
The 2022-2023 season is over. All 10 clubs must prepare for the 2023-2024 season. The first step is to catch players who have been released as free agents (FA). So, all clubs are paying attention to the maximum or quasi-level FA. This magazine is also paying attention to such free agents.
# What raised the value of Lee Dae-sung After
dropping out of Chung-Ang University, Lee Dae-sung entered the Brigham Young University Hawaii campus. He took point guard classes in the United States. Lee Dae-sung, who combines physical, athletic ability and personal skills, joined Ulsan Mobis (currently Ulsan Hyundai Mobis) as the 1st pick in the 2nd round of the 2023 KBL Domestic Rookie Draft.
At the time, director Yoo Jae-hak took notice of Lee Dae-seong. He gave Lee Dae-sung highly praised, which he seldom gets. He praised 메이저놀이터 Lee Dae-sung’s strength, saying, “He is a lumber to be selected for the national team, and he is one of the few players who can beat defenders with a two-handed dribble.”
Daesung Lee had a strong will to develop himself. He practiced more than anyone else. Most basketball officials highly praised Lee Dae-sung’s passion for basketball, saying, “Isn’t Lee Dae-sung’s passion for basketball and the amount of individual practice recognized by everyone?”
Lee Dae-seong, immersed in practice, created several options. In particular, the mid-range jumper has become a difficult option to block even if you know it. Both the scorer and main ball handler did well. As a result, Lee Dae-sung’s scoring power was maximized, and Lee Dae-sung took the top spot in scoring for two consecutive seasons from the 2021-2022 season. That’s how I raised my self-worth.
# Tenacity, but
as mentioned above, Lee Dae-sung proved to be the top scorer in Korea for two consecutive seasons. However, there is an element of anxiety. The point is that Daegu Korea Gas Corporation, where Lee Dae-sung belonged, showed results below expectations in the 2022-2023 season.
Of course, it’s unfair from Lee Dae-sung’s point of view. This is because the coaching staff of Korea Gas Corporation, including coach Yoo Do-hoon, were not well prepared. As a result, various strengths of KOGAS could not come to the surface.
Lee Dae-sung should rather be illuminated. Even though the team showed poor performance, it was because Lee Dae-sung alone showed tenacity. Despite an injury to his shooting hand, he did a lot of offense. And he threw himself into a loose ball quite a bit. His defensive focus was also high.
However, professional basketball players are evaluated on individual performance and team performance at the same time. Even more so if you are a player in charge of the team. So, the market’s evaluation of Lee Dae-sung can be harsh.
In addition, the internal situation of Korea Gas Corporation is chaotic. For that reason, the evaluation itself toward Lee Dae-sung may be delayed. If the evaluation is delayed, the time to measure Lee Dae-sung’s value will also be shortened. So, this free agency could come at a difficult time for Lee Dae-sung.
