(Seoul = Yonhap News) Reporter Kim Dong-chan = “(Lee) Jeong-hyeon works harder to make him a rookie king.”
Lee Seung-hyeon (29·197 cm), the ‘boss tiger’ of Goyang Orion, a professional basketball player, started to ‘make a rookie king’ of team junior Lee Jung-hyeon (22·187 cm).
Seung-hyun Lee scored the most goals for both teams with 19 points in the match against Samsung Seoul held at Jamsil Indoor Gymnasium in Songpa-gu, Seoul on the 30th, leading Orion to an 81-76 victory.
On this day, the match between Orion Lee Jung-hyeon and Samsung Lee Won-seok (21 206.5 cm), the candidates for the Rookie of the Year 2021-2022 season, also drew the attention of fans.
Guard position Lee Jeong-hyeon and bottom-line resource Lee Won-seok did not face each other directly, but it was because it was a game that could predict the rookie of the season at the beginning of the season.
The personal record that day was similar for Lee Jung-hyun with 10 points, 6 assists and 2 rebounds, and Lee Won-seok with 11 points and 8 rebounds.
In the rookie draft ahead of this season, Won-seok Lee joined Samsung with the first overall pick, and Busan KT Ha Yoon-gi (22·203.5 cm) with the second pick and Jeong-hyeon Lee with the third pick are nominated as strong candidates for the Rookie of the Year.
Coincidentally, however, Lee Won-seok and Ha Yoon-gi, who are competing with Lee Jung-hyun for the Rookie of the Year, are both under-goal agents, who are in positions overlapping with Lee Seung-hyun.
After the match, Lee Seung-hyun said, “(Lee) Jeong-hyeon to become a rookie king (when dealing with Lee Won-seok and Ha Yoon-gi), I will block harder.”
Lee Seung-hyeon was also a member of the Rookie of the Year 2014-2015 season, and this means that he wants his juniors to rise to the Rookie of the Year again after 7 years.
The current personal record is 11.1 points and 5.4 rebounds by Ha Yoon-gi, slightly ahead of Won-seok Lee with 8.7 points and 5.4 rebounds, and Jeong-hyeon Lee with 8.3 points and 3 assists.
However, there are still many seasons left, and there are variables such as team performance, so it is still too early to say who has the advantage.
In an interview after the match, Lee Jung-hyun said, “There are a lot of articles about the Rookie of the Year award, and a lot of people talk about it, so I don’t lose consciousness.” “Since the first round hasn’t been finished yet, my goal is to show a good image like now.”
Lee Seung-hyeon also helped by saying, “(Lee) Jeong-hyeon is a very good player, so he knows his role well and is helpful in karate.”
Lee Jung-hyun said, “There are a lot of good hyungs on the team, so I try to play a role that energizes me in a frustrating situation.” “I regretted making a mistake or choosing a pass when it was important today, but I still feel good after winning the tight match the team played away.” said his feelings.
