“Attack rather than defend”… the words of Heo Woong who woke up the sleeping KCC

Busan KCC, a professional basketball team with a national team lineup, started the 2023-2024 season ambitiously with dreams of winning the championship, but as of June 6, the team is only in fifth place with a 24-20 record. What’s wrong with KCC?

After the team’s 69-90 loss to Seoul SK on March 3, Heo Woong (pictured) sat down with KCC head coach Jeon Chang-jin to find out. In a conversation that lasted more than an hour, Heo had a lot to say. “Defense is important, 먹튀검증 but we’re focusing too much on defense,” he told Jeon, “We need to play to our strengths with an early offense that attacks the opponent before they can set up their defense.”

A former head coach is a coach who emphasizes defense above all else. For a player to ask him to “stop playing defense and start attacking” might be considered a bit out of line.

The former coach, who commanded the league with his charisma, got to thinking after hearing Heo’s opinion. “The times have changed, and I want to be softer,” the former coach said. In fact, offensive basketball is in his heart. Before the 2022-2023 season, he even sketched out a plan to “show everyone that KCC can play aggressive basketball and surprise them,” he said.

The results of the communication were clear. KCC came out firing on all cylinders and cruised to a 117-85 victory over Goyang Sono on the 5th. Heung soared with 31 points and 10 assists in the victory, putting him in contention for the league’s Most Valuable Player (MVP) award this season.

Far from winning the regular season title, KCC hopes to turn things around in spring basketball. The key will be how they perform in the remaining games. KCC’s back-to-back opponents are second-ranked Suwon KT and first-ranked Wonju DB, and these games will give us a glimpse into KCC’s chances of winning the championship.
