Dirty dangerous Jeon Seong-hyun, what was more disappointing

Jeon Seong-hyeon (Koyang Carrot), who was named the best player in the league this season and had a hot season, was the subject of controversy for rude behavior.

On the 27th, KT and Carrot SKT A-Dot 2022-2023 regular season professional basketball game held at Suwon KT Arena Gymnasium, KT scored a double-double alongside Ha Yoon-ki, who scored 22 points, and Yang Hong-seok (16 points, 12 rebounds) and Jarod Jones (18 points, 13 rebounds), etc., and beat Moronen 90-76.

Carrot faced Kim Gang-seon (22 points, 7 3-point shots) and Jeon Seong-hyun (20 points, 4 3-point shots) with ‘archery basketball’, who made 15 3-point shots, but rebounded 24-38 and 2-point shots 13-27. , and could not overcome the height.

The scene in question took place in the second quarter. KT Jeong Seong-woo marked Jeon Seong-hyeon intensively, then stole the ball connected with Jeon Seong-hyeon from the sidelines and attempted a quick attack. Jeon Seong-hyun immediately followed, but due to the timing, it was difficult to stop Jung Sung-woo.

Seong-Woo Jeon, who rushed all the way to the bottom of the goal, was about to attempt a layup at No Mark, but Seong-Hyun Jeon suddenly pushed him away. Jung Sung-woo, who lost his balance in the air, fell on the court and hit the billboard hard. It was a dangerous scene that could have resulted in serious injuries if it went down wrong.

Fortunately, Jeong Seong-woo got up immediately, but he was annoyed and went to Jeon Seong-hyeon and protested. However, Jeon Seong-hyun did not apologize and instead showed a smile. His mouth seemed to say ‘what?’ or ‘what are you doing?’ capture it on the exchange screen.

Kim Young-hwan and Kim Kang-seon, veterans of both teams, quickly intervened to mediate and calm the almost heated atmosphere. Jeong Seong-woo tried to control his emotions and turned around, but Jeon Seong-hyun showed a displeased expression by pointing his finger at Jeong Sung-woo several times despite the referee’s dissuasion. Rather than Jung Sung-woo, who suffered a dangerous foul, Jeon Seong-hyun showed a more confident reaction, and a strange scene was created as if the criminal and the victim were reversed.

In the end, a foul U was issued against Jeon Seong-hyun. KT won a great victory on the day, and Jung Sung-woo contributed to the team’s total victory with 8 points, 4 assists and 3 steals that day, insulting Jeon Seong-hyun as a basketball player.

Jeon Seong-hyun’s behavior on this day is criticized as the worst bad manners. In basketball, fouling from behind or pushing a player in the air is taboo play. This is because it breaks the spirit of partnership, and the risk of serious injury is high because it is difficult for the opponent to prepare. Even Jung Sung-woo was suffering from an injury and was forced to be more sensitive because the match was against Moronen that day before his return. Even the broadcasters who were broadcasting the game that day said, “It’s lucky I wasn’t seriously injured.”

In that situation, fouling was not necessarily justified. Jeong Seong-woo’s fast attacking position came from the mistakes of Jeon Seong-hyun and Carrot’s own players, who were pushed back by KT’s active pressure defense. It was already meaningless to break away the foul because it was a perfect unmarked opportunity to score in terms of timing. In the end, Jeon Seong-hyun’s foul was nothing more than an emotional vent for the opponent due to a crisis he had caused by his own mistake.

However, what was more horrifying than this was Jeon Seong-hyun’s actions that took place right after that. During an intense game in basketball, there are instances where the atmosphere is momentarily overheated and a dangerous hard foul is committed. Instead, it is the least way to apologize or express regret to the opponent immediately afterwards. However, Jeon Seong-hyeon showed no signs of apologizing towards Jung Sung-woo, who protested, and even pointed his finger at him. Jeon Seong-hyun openly expressed his displeasure, taking the fact that Jung Sung-woo attacked him more as a problem than the foul he had committed. Jeon Seong-hyun is two years older than Jung Sung-woo.

Jung Sung-woo was protecting Jeon Seong-hyeon as a tenacious defender that day, and he might have been angry inside because the team’s game did not go well. However, Jung Sung-woo was just faithful to his role and didn’t do anything particularly wrong with Jeon Seong-hyun. I committed dangerous hard dirty and got upset for a while, but I have to say that it was close to refrain because Jeon Seong-hyun was my senior I tolerated and backed off at that level in the mediation of my colleagues.

Of course, in the world of sports, emotions can be heated momentarily due to the desire to compete, and often fight nerves or fight with opponents. However, even in intense competition, a minimum sense of partnership and mutual respect is needed. On the court, there is no need to judge older people and younger people, they are just colleagues who should be respected and respected fairly on an equal basis.

Jeon Seong-hyun, regarded as the best shooter in the league, is currently having the best season, setting various records in scoring and 3-point shooting, recording 19.89 points per game (2nd in overall) and 4.03 3-pointers (1st). Ace Jeon Seong-hyeon played an absolute role in causing the new Carrot team, which was mentioned as a weak player, to make sense beyond progressing to the semi-finals this season. Early on, this season’s MVP domestic player was praised to the point that it was no different than Jeon Seong-hyun’s doubt.

However, basketball fans are showing disappointment with the shocking behavior he showed to Jung Sung-woo that day. Professional sport is an industry that exists to entertain and impress fans. No matter how good a basketball player is and how good his grades are, a player who disappoints fans cannot become a star. Despite their talent and excellent performance, there are many players who are criticized for their careless behaviour.

In particular, sports fans these days who value ‘fairness’ are more sensitive to issues of character and morals. It is an instant for a tower of hard work to collapse. This is a point that Jeon Seong-hyun should seriously reflect on today’s game, which left a ‘black history’ more embarrassing than defeat.
