Blocking Jamil Warney (Seoul SK) will be the most important task.
KBL held the 2022-2023 SKT A-Dot Professional Basketball Championship Media Day at the KBL Center (5th floor training center) in Nonhyeon-dong at 11 am on the 23rd.
The championship match, which will be held at Anyang Indoor Gymnasium from the 25th, will end on May 7th if it is held until the 7th game.
This final match is between Anyang KGC, who finished first in the regular league and defeated Goyang Carrot 3 wins and 1 loss, and Seoul SK, who finished third in the regular league and beat Jeonju KCC and Changwon LG.
This is the second year in a row we met. In last season’s championship match, the two teams clashed and SK defeated KGC 4-1 to win the unified championship. 스포츠토토
On this day, coaches and representative players of both teams, Byun Jun-hyung and Omari Spellman (hereinafter referred to as KGC), and Kim Seon-hyung and Jamil Warney (hereinafter referred to as SK) attended and cast their votes.
In this series, the biggest point to watch is how to block the attacks of SK’s Kim Seon-hyung and Jamil Warney. Warney, who won the foreign player MVP with an average of 24.2 points, 11.2 rebounds, 3.1 assists, 1.3 steals, and 51.5% FG in the regular league, is showing more explosive power with an average average of 27.8 points, 12.2 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.0 steals, and 45.1% FG in the playoffs.
Spellman’s defense, which matches up with Warney, will be the most important. “I think it’s a chess match. Warney throws a lot of shots. I can’t stop them all. I think it’s my duty to stick as closely as possible and make it difficult to catch the ball,” he said.
Spellman can also target Warnie with an attack. He is also a player who has the quickness to hit and go inside along with shooting after his unique movement. What does Warnie feel is Spellman’s greatest weapon?
Warney warned, “Outside shots are the most dangerous. Because the shooting distance is quite long. You must always prepare your defense from the time you cross the half line. The shooting distance is the longest in KBL.”
Even so, Warney gained confidence. He said, “I have been playing various defenses such as hedge defense and down defense this season. I think I have improved defensively,” he said. “I feel that I myself have grown defensively.”
