Jeon Seong-hyun, the best shooter in professional basketball, expressed his determination to seriously compete with ‘Rookie King’ Yu Yu-sang for the starting position at his new home, Changwon LG.

Jeon Seong-hyun, who joined LG on the 4th, said in a recent phone call with Yonhap News, “No matter which team you join, competition is natural. There is no such thing as a (firm) starter,” and “In the world of pros, those who have proven their skills get the opportunity.” .

He said, “I think (competing with Yoo Ki-sang) will be an opportunity for me to improve further. I am confident, and I am full of confidence now,” and added, “Everyone will know when the season starts.”

In the 2022-2023 season, he scored an average of 17.6 points at the Goyang Carrots, becoming the best shooter in professional basketball. This season he hit 171 threes.

He scored so many 3 points that he was expected to become the first professional basketball player to hit 200 in a season, but during the season, a problem occurred in the body system responsible for balance, and his back was injured, so he was unable to set a record.

Jeon Seong-hyun, whose average score in the 2023-2024 season dropped to 11.8 points due to injuries, wore an LG uniform through a trade with Lee Jae-do on the 4th.

Although he is the best shooter, Jeon Seong-hyun is not sure of his starting spot at LG. This is because there is Yugi-sang, the winner of the 2023-2024 season’s Rookie Award.

Yoo Yu-sang, who is 9 years younger than Jeon Seong-hyun, emerged as a new shooter with a 42.4% 3-point success rate in his debut season. Under the guidance of coach Cho Sang-hyun, who emphasizes defense, he also showed off his powerful man-to-man defense.

Coach Ahn Jun-ho, who watched Yoo Yu-sang’s performance, selected him for the national team.

If, like Jeon Seong-hyun, he wants to team up with Doo Kyung-min, an offensive point guard who joined through a trade from Wonju DB, Yoo Yoo-sang, who has relatively better defense, may be selected as the starting player.

However, Jeon Seong-hyun’s will to bounce back at LG is strong.

Jeon Seong-hyun said, “Last season was the worst season for me personally. Compared to my rookie year, I didn’t have much playing time back then, but I learned a lot, but there was nothing like that in terms of basketball last season,” and “It was a time when I lost a lot, so this year’s “I plan to go back to my old self this season,” he said.

He added, “I don’t want to go through the same situation as last season anymore,” and added, “My goal for the upcoming season is to win the team and restore my honor.”

Jeon Seong-hyun is said to have overcome the injury that had been holding him back for the past two seasons.

He said, “My back isn’t bad enough to worry about. I should say it’s fine now. Actually, I’m worried that I haven’t been able to exercise properly. I just need to work hard again.”

In addition, he is said to be excited to be at the forefront of LG, which is expected to be the new ‘3-point corps’. 성인웹툰
