LG’s 5-game winning streak, Kim Jun-il’s belated fighting spirit

Kim Jun-il (200cm, C) did not exert much effort.

Changwon LG lost to Jeonju KCC 64-87 in the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Professional Basketball regular league held at Jeonju Indoor Gymnasium on the 5th. The season’s second 5-game winning streak failed. It maintained second place with 24 wins and 14 losses, but was 3 games away from No. 1 Anyang KGC Ginseng Corporation (27 wins and 11 losses).

Kim Jun-il faced his parent team (Seoul Samsung) in the opening game of the 2021-2022 season. However, Kim Joon-il only played 17 minutes and 35 seconds in the opening game. And the opening game became the last game. This is because a major injury called ‘Achilles tendon rupture’ came to Kim Jun-il.

After his injury, Kim Jun-il devoted himself to treatment and rehabilitation. He was bored, but he was determined for the day he was back on the court. And he participated in the Philippine battery training held in September 2022. After about 11 months, he digested the actual game.

After training in the Philippines, he also participated in cup competitions. He hadn’t played in a long time, but he was still aggressive. He was not pushed behind by domestic big men and post-ups, actively participated in fast attacks, and paid a lot of attention to defense and rebounding. He held up well against the physical struggles of his opponent, the big man.

As Kim Joon-il endured, Dante Cunningham (203cm, F), who played with Kim Jun-il, also proved to be sound. Participation in the fast break, finish, and stable and effortless shooting were also impressive. As Cunningham played a big role, Asem Marey (202cm, C) was able to rest in peace.

However, Kim Jun-il did not perform well in the first round. He was on the court just 11 minutes and 53 seconds per game, averaging 3.9 points and 2.8 rebounds. His contributions outside of his record were also low. He volunteered to go to the D-League. 온라인바카라

However, he rebounded from the second round. In particular, he was very active in the third round with 12.6 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 8 games and 21 minutes on average. Even in the 4th round, he had an excellent time-to-play record with 8.0 points, 3.0 rebounds and 2.6 assists in 13 minutes and 56 seconds per game.

And Lee Seung-hyeon (197cm, F) meets KCC, who broke away. Kim Jun-il started the game from the bench. He cheered on the players included in the starting lineup.
