“I heard that there are only four players who have won twice (in the three-point shooting contest). I was aiming for that title, but unfortunately I failed this time, and my pride is hurt.”
Lee Kwan-hee has been selected as an All-Star ever since he first participated in the 2018-2019 All-Star Game held in Changwon.
Lee Kwan-hee recorded 11 points, 11 rebounds and 7 assists in 15 minutes and 10 seconds in the All-Star Game last season.
He is the protagonist of the double-double with the minimum playing time based on the all-star game standards.
There is a player who recorded double-digit rebounds while playing less time than Lee Kwan-hee. In the 2003-2004 All-Star Game, RF Bassett played 14 minutes and 39 seconds and recorded 10 rebounds, but scored only 9 points and failed to double-double.
In this year’s All-Star Game, Lee Kwan-hee scored 17 points in the second quarter alone, recording 19 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists and 2 steals in just 13 minutes and 2 seconds, showing the best efficiency once again.
In the 2016-2017 season, the only time Oderian Bassett scored more goals despite playing less time than Lee Kwan-hee was 22 points in 9 minutes and 18 seconds.
For reference, this record is based on the last appearance time. In the All-Star Game, there are two players who scored more than 19 points in one quarter (Lee Benson with 21 points and Marcus Landry with 20 points). 온라인카지노
On the 20th, ahead of the game against Korea Gas Corporation in Daegu, I met Lee Kwan-hee and talked about the All-Star Game.
Lee Kwan-hee, who challenged for the 3-point shot king for two consecutive years following last season, was eliminated in the preliminary round of the 3-point shot contest this time.
When Lee Kwan-hee mentioned the 3-point shooting contest first, he said, “I don’t want to make excuses, but Moon Seong-gon shot in front of me, but the ball was covered with sweat. Ho-hyun Lee also had an air ball. Prepare new balls for all the balls used in the 3-point shooting contest in KBL. It was not easy because it was a new ball and was covered with sweat. It’s an excuse, but it’s a pity,” he said. “It was a situation where I could win enough, but it doesn’t make sense.”
When asked if he had to overcome such a thing as the winning player last season, Lee Kwan-hee said, “KBL gave me a completely new ball, but what if KT gave me the ball I used?” ” he said.
Lee Kwan-hee scored 17 points in the 2nd quarter alone, and if he continued that momentum in the second half, he could have been aiming for MVP. However, he became the protagonist of a rather unique record because he had little time to play in the second half.
Lee Kwan-hee said, “Our team captain Lee Dae-seong said he selected players who would do their best to win. The players in the second quarter were also very good. The shooting sense was also good, but I think it was thanks to Lee Jung-hyun and Byun Jun-hyung of Carrot who gave good passes.”
Lee Kwan-hee, who was the most influential MVP at the end of the second quarter, said, “I didn’t play with the MVP in mind. Excluding Asem Marey, Lee Jae-do and I were able to show a little better play to the Changwon fans, but I was not feeling well, so coach Cho Sang-hyun gave a special order not to play for too long. I did my best within 10 minutes and came.” As long as I was running, I did my best and came out with the best I could.”
Lee Kwan-hee, whose participation in the All-Star Game has become a constant now, said, “I think it is natural to participate in the All-Star Game and the 3-point shooting contest. Next year, I will aim for a real championship. They said there were only 4 players who won twice. I was aiming for that title, but unfortunately I failed this time, so my pride is hurt.”
The players who have won the 3-point shot contest twice so far are Ji-won Woo (1997, 1999-2000), Kyung-eun Moon (2001-2002, 2007-2008), Jun-beom Jeon (2016-2017, 2017-2018), Seong-min Cho (2015-2016, 2018-2019), etc.
The All-Star Game is over. Changwon LG, which is currently competing fiercely for second place, can jump to first place depending on the results of the remaining games.
Lee Kwan-hee said, “Last season, after the All-Star Game, I had a good shooting sense. I want to continue that feeling in the 4th round, and now that the outline has come out to some extent, a team that will win like Samsung will definitely win.”
